19 By wisdom(A) the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,(B)
    by understanding he set the heavens(C) in place;
20 by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
    and the clouds let drop the dew.

21 My son,(D) do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,(E)
    preserve sound judgment and discretion;
22 they will be life for you,(F)
    an ornament to grace your neck.(G)
23 Then you will go on your way in safety,(H)
    and your foot will not stumble.(I)
24 When you lie down,(J) you will not be afraid;(K)
    when you lie down, your sleep(L) will be sweet.
25 Have no fear of sudden disaster
    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
26 for the Lord will be at your side(M)
    and will keep your foot(N) from being snared.(O)
