Proverbs 3:31
Context
Blessed is He who Finds Wisdom

13Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding. 14For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15She is more precious than rubies: and all the things you can desire are not to be compared to her. 16Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. 17Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18She is a tree of life to them that lay hold on her: and happy is every one that retains her. 19The LORD by wisdom has founded the earth; by understanding has he established the heavens. 20By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. 21My son, let not them depart from your eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: 22So shall they be life to your soul, and grace to your neck. 23Then shall you walk in your way safely, and your foot shall not stumble. 24When you lie down, you shall not be afraid: yes, you shall lie down, and your sleep shall be sweet. 25Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it comes. 26For the LORD shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being taken. 27Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do it. 28Say not to your neighbor, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when you have it by you. 29Devise not evil against your neighbor, seeing he dwells securely by you. 30Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done you no harm. 31Envy you not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. 32For the fraudulent is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous. 33The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesses the habitation of the just. 34Surely he scorns the scorners: but he gives grace to the lowly. 35The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
