Proverbs 22:17-21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
IV. Sayings of the Wise
17 The Words of the Wise:
Incline your ear, and hear my words,
and let your mind attend to my teaching;
18 For it will be well if you hold them within you,
if they all are ready on your lips.
19 That your trust may be in the Lord,
I make them known to you today—yes, to you.
20 Have I not written for you thirty sayings,
containing counsels and knowledge,
21 To teach you truly
how to give a dependable report to one who sends you?
