箴言 3



10 祂必使你五穀滿倉,
11 孩子啊,不可輕視耶和華的管教,
12 因為耶和華責備祂所愛的人,
13 找到智慧、得到悟性的人有福了,
14 因為智慧比銀子更有價值,
15 比珠寶更珍貴;
16 智慧的右手有長壽,
17 她的路上有福樂,
18 對持守智慧的人來說,
19 耶和華以智慧奠立大地,
20 祂的知識使深淵裂開,

21 孩子啊,你要守護智慧和明辨力,
22 她們必給你帶來生命,
23 如此,你必步履穩健,不致失足;
24 你必安然躺臥,睡得香甜。
25 不要怕突來的災禍,
26 因為耶和華是你的靠山,

27 倘若有力量行善,
28 倘若可以幫忙,
29 鄰舍在你附近安分居住,
30 別人若沒有害你,
31 不要羡慕殘暴之徒,
32 因為耶和華憎惡邪僻之徒,
33 耶和華咒詛惡人的家,
34 耶和華譏笑好譏誚的人,
35 智者得尊榮,

Proverbs 3

Wisdom bestows well-being

1My son, do not forget my teaching,
    but keep my commands in your heart,
for they will prolong your life many years
    and bring you peace and prosperity.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
    bind them round your neck,
    write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favour and a good name
    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 submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.[a]

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.

Honour the Lord with your wealth,
    with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
    and your vats will brim over with new wine.

11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
    and do not resent his rebuke,
12 because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
    as a father the son he delights in.[b]

13 Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
14 for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
    in her left hand are riches and honour.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
    and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
    those who hold her fast will be blessed.

19 By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,
    by understanding he set the heavens in place;
20 by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
    and the clouds let drop the dew.

21 My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
    preserve sound judgment and discretion;
22 they will be life for you,
    an ornament to grace your neck.
23 Then you will go on your way in safety,
    and your foot will not stumble.
24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
    when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
25 Have no fear of sudden disaster
    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
26 for the Lord will be at your side
    and will keep your foot from being snared.

27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
    when it is in your power to act.
28 Do not say to your neighbour,
    ‘Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you’–
    when you already have it with you.
29 Do not plot harm against your neighbour,
    who lives trustfully near you.
30 Do not accuse anyone for no reason –
    when they have done you no harm.

31 Do not envy the violent
    or choose any of their ways.

32 For the Lord detests the perverse
    but takes the upright into his confidence.
33 The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
    but he blesses the home of the righteous.
34 He mocks proud mockers
    but shows favour to the humble and oppressed.
35 The wise inherit honour,
    but fools get only shame.
