Passage: Proverbs 3:11-18 (RSV)

Proverbs 3

11My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline or be weary of his reproof,
12for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
13Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding,
14for the gain from it is better than gain from silver and its profit better than gold.
15She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.
16Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.
17Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called happy.
