Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart

Proverbs 3

1 My son, do not forget my law,
a But let your heart keep my commands;
2 For length of days and long life
And b peace they will add to you.

3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
c Bind them around your neck,
d Write them on the tablet of your heart,
4 e And so find favor and 1 high esteem
In the sight of God and man.

5 f Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
g And lean not on your own understanding;
6 h In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall 2 direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own i eyes;
Fear the LORD and depart from evil.
8 It will be health to your 3 flesh,
And j strength 4 to your bones.

9 k Honor the LORD with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
10 l So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.

11 m My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,
Nor detest His correction;
12 For whom the LORD loves He corrects,
n Just as a father the son in whom he delights.
