Daily Verse Reading – Proverbs 2:1-9
2 My son, if you will receive my words,
and hide my commandments within you,
2 so that you incline your ear to wisdom,
and apply your heart to understanding;
3 yes, if you cry out for knowledge,
and lift up your voice for understanding,
4 if you seek her as silver,
and search for her as for hidden treasures,
5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
out of His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly.
8 He keeps the paths of justice,
and preserves the way of His saints.
9 Then you will understand righteousness and judgment
and equity, and every good path.
