Proverbs Chapter 2 - American Standard Version

1
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, And lay up my commandments with thee;
2
So as to incline thine ear unto wisdom, And apply thy heart to understanding;
3
Yea, if thou cry after discernment, And lift up thy voice for understanding;
4
If thou seek her as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures:
5
Then shalt thou understand the fear of Jehovah, And find the knowledge of God.
6
For Jehovah giveth wisdom; Out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding:
7
He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright; [He is] a shield to them that walk in integrity;
8
That he may guard the paths of justice, And preserve the way of his saints.
9
Then shalt thou understand righteousness and justice, And equity, [yea], every good path.
10
For wisdom shall enter into thy heart, And knowledge shall be pleasant unto thy soul;
11
Discretion shall watch over thee; Understanding shall keep thee:
12
To deliver thee from the way of evil, From the men that speak perverse things;
13
Who forsake the paths of uprightness, To walk in the ways of darkness;
14
Who rejoice to do evil, And delight in the perverseness of evil;
15
Who are crooked in their ways, And wayward in their paths:
16
To deliver thee from the strange woman, Even from the foreigner that flattereth with her words;
17
That forsaketh the friend of her youth, And forgetteth the covenant of her God:
18
For her house inclineth unto death, And her paths unto the dead;
19
None that go unto her return again, Neither do they attain unto the paths of life:
20
That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, And keep the paths of the righteous.
21
For the upright shall dwell in the land, And the perfect shall remain in it.
22
But the wicked shall be cut off from the land, And the treacherous shall be rooted out of it.

Daily Golden Verse

1st John 4:7-16
[4:7] Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is begotten of God, and knoweth God. [4:8] He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. [4:9] Herein was the love of God manifested in us, that God hath sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might live through him. [4:10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins. [4:11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. [4:12] No man hath beheld God at any time: if we love one another, God abideth in us, and his love is perfected in us: [4:13] hereby we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. [4:14] And we have beheld and bear witness that the Father hath sent the Son [to be] the Saviour of the world. [4:15] Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God. [4:16] And we know and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him.
