Proverbs 2
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1My son, if you receive my words, and hide my commandments in your heart

2And you will incline your ear to wisdom and turn your heart to understanding

3And call to understanding and lift up your voice to intelligence

4And you will seek it as silver and you will search it out as treasure

5Then you will understand the awe of LORD JEHOVAH and you will find the knowledge of God.

6Because LORD JEHOVAH gives wisdom, and from his mouth, knowledge and understanding.

7And he keeps hope for those who are upright and helps those who walk without blemish.

8And he keeps the ways of justice; the ways of his pure ones he will preserve.

9Then you will understand righteousness and justice and uprightness of all excellent ways

10When wisdom will enter your heart and knowledge will be sweet to your soul.

11A good mind will keep you and the intelligence of the good will deliver you

12That you may be delivered from evil ways and from men speaking contradictions

13Who leave the upright way and they walk in the way of darkness.

14And they rejoice to do evil and they rejoice in the lifestyle of the evil.

15Their ways are perverted and their paths are crooked.

16Wisdom will deliver you from an estranged woman who subverts by her words

17Who has left the rearing of her childhood and has forgotten the covenant of her God.

18She has forgotten the doorposts of her house and the steps of her paths.

19None who enter unto her return, neither remember the way of life.

20Walk therefore in the way of the good and keep the way of the righteous ones

21Because the upright dwell in the land and those without blemish are spared in it

22And dissenters are consumed from the Earth and the evil are uprooted from it.
