Description

Excerpt: ...she shall be turned to thy joy. 6:30. Then shall her fetters be a strong defence for thee, and a firm foundation, and her chain a robe of glory: 6:31. For in her is the beauty of life, and her bands are a healthful binding. 6:32. Thou shalt put her on as a robe of glory, and thou shalt set her upon thee as a crown of joy. 6:33. My son, if thou wilt attend to me, thou shalt learn: and if thou wilt apply thy mind, thou shalt be wise. 6:34. If thou wilt incline thy ear, thou shalt receive instruction: and if thou love to hear, thou shalt be wise. 6:35. Stand in the multitude of ancients that are wise, and join thyself from thy heart to their wisdom, that thou mayst hear every discourse of God, and the sayings of praise may not escape thee. 6:36. And if thou see a man of understanding, go to him early in the morning, and let thy foot wear the steps of his doors. 6:37. Let thy thoughts be upon the precepts of God, and meditate continually on his commandments: and he will give thee a heart, and the desire of wisdom shall be given to thee.

Justify not thyself before God, for he knoweth the heart: and desire not to appear wise before the king. 7:6.

Offend not against the multitude of a city, neither cast thyself in upon the people, 7:8. Nor bind sin to sin: for even in one thou shalt not be unpunished. 7:9. Be not fainthearted in thy mind: 7:10. Neglect not to pray, and to give alms. 7:11. Say not: God will have respect to the multitude...show more
