Proverbs ch 4:1 Listen my sons ,to the teachings of a father; Pay attention in order to gain understanding. 2; For I will give you good instruction; do not forget my teachings. 3; I was a true son to my father,and one especially loved by my mother. 4; He taught me and said; may your heart hold fast to my words. Keep my commandments so as to keep living. 5; Acquire wisdom,acquire understanding. Do not forget, and do not turn aside from what I say. 6; Do not forsake it , and it will protect you. Love it, and it will safeguard you.
