Proverbs 3:21-23 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Wisdom, Our Hiding Place

21 My child, never drift off course from these two goals for your life:
to walk in wisdom and to discover discernment.[a]
Don’t ever forget how they empower you.
22 For they strengthen you inside and out
and inspire you to do what’s right;[b]
you will be energized and refreshed by the healing they bring.
23 They give you living hope to guide you,
and not one of life’s tests will cause you to stumble.


  1. Proverbs 3:21 Like many Hebrew words, there are various possible translations. The word translated as “discernment” here can also mean “discretion, counsel, meditation, and purpose.”
  2. Proverbs 3:22 Or “Adorn your neck.” The neck is a picture of our will and conscience.
