Admonition to Trust and Honor God

My child, do not forget my teaching,
    but let your heart keep my commandments,(A)
for length of days and years of life
    and abundant welfare they will give you.(B)

Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;
    bind them around your neck;
    write them on the tablet of your heart.(C)
Then you will find favor and high regard
    in the sight of God and of people.(D)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not rely on your own insight.(E)
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.(F)
