“Heare, O my sonne, and receiue my sayings: and the yeeres of thy life shalbe many.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. Wisedome is the principall thing, therefore get wisedome: and with all thy getting, get vnderstanding. 8. Exalt her, and shee shall promote thee: shee shall bring thee to honour, when thou doest imbrace her. 9. She shall giue to thine head an ornament of grace, a crowne of glory shall she deliuer to thee. 10. Heare, O my sonne, and receiue my sayings: and the yeeres of thy life shalbe many. 11. I haue taught thee in the way of wisedome: I haue lead thee in right pathes. 12. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitned, and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. 13. Take fast hold of instruction, let her not goe; keepe her, for she is thy life.
