Proverbs 3:19-22 English Standard Version (ESV)

19 The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
    by understanding he established the heavens;
20 by his knowledge the deeps broke open,
    and the clouds drop down the dew.

21 My son, do not lose sight of these—
    keep sound wisdom and discretion,
22 and they will be life for your soul
    and adornment for your neck.

Proverbs 3:19-22 Amplified Bible (AMP)

19 
The Lord by His wisdom has founded the earth;
By His understanding He has established the heavens.
20 
By His knowledge the deeps were broken up
And the clouds drip with dew.
21 
My son, let them not escape from your sight,
But keep sound wisdom and discretion,
22 
And they will be life to your soul (your inner self)
And a gracious adornment to your neck (your outer self).

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

21 My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
    preserve sound judgment and discretion;
22 they will be life for you,
    an ornament to grace your neck.
