4. 5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

7. 2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

4. 6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

4. 7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

1. 5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:

2. 10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

2. 11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

3. 13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

3. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

6. 6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

6. 7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

6. 8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

8. 32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
