The Value of Wisdom

(A)My son, (B)if you receive my words
    and treasure up my commandments with you,
making your ear attentive to wisdom
    and inclining your heart to understanding;
yes, if you call out for insight
    and raise your voice (C)for understanding,
if you seek it like (D)silver
    and search for it as for (E)hidden treasures,
then (F)you will understand the fear of the Lord
    and find the knowledge of God.

33 (A)Hear instruction and be wise,
    and do not neglect it.
34 (B)Blessed is the one who listens to me,
    watching daily at my gates,
    waiting beside my doors.
35 For (C)whoever finds me (D)finds life
    and (E)obtains favor from the Lord,
36 but he who fails to find me (F)injures himself;
    all who (G)hate me (H)love death.”
