My son, don’t forget my teaching;
but let your heart keep my commandments: for they will add to you length of days, years of life, and peace.
Don’t let kindness and truth forsake you. Bind them around your neck. Write them on the tablet of your heart .
So you will find favor, and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Don’t be wise in your own eyes. Fear Yahweh, and depart from evil. It will be health to your body, and nourishment to your bones.
