箴言 2

智慧的益處

1孩子啊,
    你若接受我的教誨,
    珍愛我的誡命,
側耳聆聽智慧,
    傾心渴慕悟性;
你若呼求洞見,
    竭力追求悟性,
尋它如尋銀子,
    找它如找寶藏,
你就會懂得敬畏耶和華,
    認識上帝。
因為耶和華賜人智慧,
    知識和悟性出自祂的口。
祂使正直人充滿智慧,
    是行為純全者的盾牌。
祂看守正義之路,
    護衛虔誠人的道。
這樣,你就明白何為仁義、
    公平和正直,
    懂得一切美善之道。
10 因為智慧必進入你心,
    知識必令你的靈歡快。
11 明辨力必護佑你,
    悟性必看顧你。
12 智慧必救你遠離惡道,
    脫離言語荒謬的人。
13 他們捨棄正道,走上黑路,
14 以行惡為樂,喜愛惡人的邪僻;
15 他們的道路歪邪,行徑扭曲。

16 智慧要救你脫離淫婦,
    脫離花言巧語的妓女。
17 她撇棄了年輕時的丈夫,
    忘了在上帝面前立的約。
18 她的家通向死亡,
    她的路直達陰間。
19 到她那裡的人都有去無回,
    找不到生命之道。
20 所以你要行善人的路,
    守義人的道。
21 因為在地上,
    正直人必安居,
    純全無過的人必長存,
22 惡人必遭滅絕,
    奸徒必被剷除。

Proverbs 2

Moral benefits of wisdom

1My son, if you accept my words
    and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
    and applying your heart to understanding –
indeed, if you call out for insight
    and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
    and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
    and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
    from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He holds success in store for the upright,
    he is a shield to those whose way of life is blameless,
for he guards the course of the just
    and protects the way of his faithful ones.

Then you will understand what is right and just
    and fair – every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
    and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will protect you,
    and understanding will guard you.

12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men,
    from men whose words are perverse,
13 who have left the straight paths
    to walk in dark ways,
14 who delight in doing wrong
    and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,
15 whose paths are crooked
    and who are devious in their ways.

16 Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman,
    from the wayward woman with her seductive words,
17 who has left the partner of her youth
    and ignored the covenant she made before God.[a]
18 Surely her house leads down to death
    and her paths to the spirits of the dead.
19 None who go to her return
    or attain the paths of life.

20 Thus you will walk in the ways of the good
    and keep to the paths of the righteous.
21 For the upright will live in the land,
    and the blameless will remain in it;
22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land,
    and the unfaithful will be torn from it.
