Admonition to Trust and Honor God

My son, do not forget my teaching,
but let your heart keep my commandments;
for length of days and years of life
    and abundant welfare will they give you.

Let not loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;
    bind them about your neck,
    write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good repute[a]
    in the sight of God and man.

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