Proverbs Chapter – 2 – Darby Bible

Proverbs Chapters (English Bible : Darby Version)

1 My son, if thou receivest my words, and layest up my commandments with thee,

2 so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom [and] thou apply thy heart to understanding;

3 yea, if thou criest after discernment [and] liftest up thy voice to understanding;

4 if thou seekest her as silver and searchest for her as for hidden treasures:

5 then shalt thou understand the fear of Jehovah, and find the knowledge of God.

6 For Jehovah giveth wisdom; out of his mouth [come] knowledge and understanding.

7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright; [he] is a shield to them that walk in integrity;

8 guarding the paths of just judgment and keeping the way of his godly ones.

9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness and judgment and equity: every good path.

10 When wisdom entereth into thy heart and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul,

11 discretion shall keep thee, understanding shall preserve thee:

12 To deliver thee from the way of evil, from the man that speaketh froward things;

13 [from those] who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

14 who rejoice to do evil, [and] delight in the frowardness of evil;

15 whose paths are crooked, and who are perverted in their course:

16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, from the stranger who flattereth with her words;

17 who forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God;

18 — for her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead;

19 none that go unto her return again, neither do they attain to the paths of life:


21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it;

22 but the wicked shall be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful shall be plucked up out of it.
