(A)Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and (B)do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways (C)acknowledge him,
    and he (D)will make straight your paths.
(E)Be not wise in your own eyes;
    (F)fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
It will be (G)healing to your flesh[a]
    and (H)refreshment[b] to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth
    and with (I)the firstfruits of all your produce;
10 then your (J)barns will be filled with plenty,
    and your vats will be bursting with wine.

11 (K)My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline
    or be weary of his reproof,
12 for the Lord reproves him whom he loves,
    as (L)a father the son in whom he delights.
