Proverbs 3:1-12 AMP
[1] My son, do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; [2] For length of days and years of life [worth living] And tranquility and prosperity [the wholeness of life’s blessings] they will add to you. [3] Do not let mercy and kindness and truth leave you [instead let these qualities define you]; Bind them [securely] around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. [4] So find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. [5] Trust in and rely confidently on the LORD with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. [6] In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. [7] Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD [with reverent awe and obedience] and turn [entirely] away from evil. [8] It will be health to your body [your marrow, your nerves, your sinews, your muscles-all your inner parts] And refreshment (physical well-being) to your bones. [9] Honor the LORD with your wealth And with the first fruits of all your crops (income); [10] Then your barns will be abundantly filled And your vats will overflow with new wine. [11] My son, do not reject or take lightly the discipline of the LORD [learn from your mistakes and the testing that comes from His correction through discipline]; Nor despise His rebuke, [12] For those whom the LORD loves He corrects, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.
