The Book of Proverbs Chapter 3 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 3. My son do not forget my law But let your heart keep my commands For length of days and long life and Peace they will add to you Let not mercy and Truth forsake you Bind them around your neck write them on The tablet of your heart and so find Favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man Trust in the Lord with all your heart And lean not on your own understanding In all your ways acknowledge Him And he shall direct your paths Do not be wise in your own eyes Fear the lord and depart from evil It will be Health to your flesh and Strength to your bones Honor the Lord with your possessions and With the first fruits of all your Increase So your bonds will be filled with plenty And your Vats will overflow with new Wine My son Do not despise the chastening of the Lord nor detest his correction For Whom the lord loves he corrects just As a father the son in whom he Delights Happy is the man who finds wisdom And the man who gains understanding For her proceeds are better than the Prophets of silver and her gain than Fine gold

She is more precious than rubies and all The things you may desire cannot compare With her Length of days is in her right hand in Her left hand riches and honor Her ways are ways of pleasantness and All her paths are peace She is a tree of life to those who take Hold of her and happy are all who retain Her The Lord by wisdom founded the Earth By understanding he established the Heavens By his knowledge The Depths were broken Up and clouds dropped down the Dew My son Let them not depart from your eyes Keep sound wisdom and discretion So there will be life to your soul and Grace to your neck Then you will walk safely in your way And your foot will not stumble When you lie down you will not be afraid Yes you will lie down and your sleep Will be sweet Do not be afraid of sudden Terror nor of Trouble from the wicked when it comes For the Lord will be your confidence and Will keep your foot from being caught Do not withhold good from those to whom It is due When it is in the power of your hand to Do so Do not say to your neighbor go and come

Back and tomorrow I will give it When you have it with you Do not devise evil against your neighbor For he dwells by you for safety's sake Do not strive with a man without cause If he has done you no harm Do not envy the oppressor and choose None of his ways For the perverse person is an Abomination to the Lord But his secret counsel is with the Upright The curse of the Lord is on the house of The wicked but He blesses the home of The just Surely he scorns the scornful but gives Grace to the humble The wise shall inherit Glory But shame shall be the legacy of fools
