Benefits of Wisdom My child, a listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. [2] Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. [3] Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. [4] Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. [5] Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. [6] For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. [7] He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. [8] He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him. [9] Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go. [10] For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. [11] Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe. [12] Wisdom will save you from evil people, from those whose words are twisted. [13] These men turn from the right way to walk down dark paths. [14] They take pleasure in doing wrong, and they enjoy the twisted ways of evil. [15] Their actions are crooked, and their ways are wrong. [16] Wisdom will save you from the immoral woman, from the seductive words of the promiscuous woman. [17] She has abandoned her husband and ignores the covenant she made before God. [18] Entering her house leads to death; it is the road to the grave. [19] The man who visits her is doomed. He will never reach the paths of life. [20] Follow the steps of good men instead, and stay on the paths of the righteous. [21] For only the godly will live in the land, and those with integrity will remain in it. [22] But the wicked will be removed from the land, and the treacherous will be uprooted.

The sayings of King Lemuel contain this message, a which his mother taught him. [2] O my son, O son of my womb, O son of my vows, [3] do not waste your strength on women, on those who ruin kings. [4] It is not for kings, O Lemuel, to guzzle wine. Rulers should not crave alcohol. [5] For if they drink, they may forget the law and not give justice to the oppressed. [6] Alcohol is for the dying, and wine for those in bitter distress. [7] Let them drink to forget their poverty and remember their troubles no more. [8] Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. [9] Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice. [10] Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. [11] Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. [12] She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. [13] She finds wool and flax and busily spins it. [14] She is like a merchant's ship, bringing her food from afar. [15] She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plan the day's work for her servant girls. [16] She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard. [17] She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. [18] She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night. [19] Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber. [20] She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. [21] She has no fear of winter for her household, for everyone has warm clothes. [22] She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns. [23] Her husband is well known at the city gates, where he sits with the other civic leaders. [24] She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants. [25] She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. [26] When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. [27] She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. [28] Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: [29] "There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!" [30] Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. [31] Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. [2] I thirst for God, the living God. When can I go and stand before him? [3] Day and night I have only tears for food, while my enemies continually taunt me, saying, "Where is this God of yours?" [4] My heart is breaking as I remember how it used to be: I walked among the crowds of worshipers, leading a great procession to the house of God, singing for joy and giving thanks amid the sound of a great celebration! [5] Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again- my Savior and [6] my God! Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember you- even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan, from the land of Mount Mizar. [7] I hear the tumult of the raging seas as your waves and surging tides sweep over me. [8] But each day the Lord pours his unfailing love upon me, and through each night I sing his songs, praying to God who gives me life. [9] "O God my rock," I cry, "Why have you forgotten me? Why must I wander around in grief, oppressed by my enemies?" [10] Their taunts break my bones. They scoff, "Where is this God of yours?" [11] Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!

And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and a are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger b and High Priest. [2] For he was faithful to God, who appointed him, just as Moses served faithfully when he was entrusted with God's entire house. [3] But Jesus deserves far more glory than Moses, just as a person who builds a house deserves more praise than the house itself. [4] For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God. [5] Moses was certainly faithful in God's house as a servant. His work was an illustration of the truths God would reveal later. [6] But Christ, as the Son, is in charge of God's entire house. And we are God's house, if we keep our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ. [7] That is why the Holy Spirit says, "Today when you hear his voice, [8] don't harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested me in the wilderness. [9] There your ancestors tested and tried my patience, even though they saw my miracles for forty years. [10] So I was angry with them, and I said, 'Their hearts always turn away from me. They refuse to do what I tell them.' [11] So in my anger I took an oath: 'They will never enter my place of rest.'" [12] Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. [13] You must warn each other every day, while it is still "today," so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. [14] For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. [15] Remember what it says: "Today when you hear his voice, don't harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled." [16] And who was it who rebelled against God, even though they heard his voice? Wasn't it the people Moses led out of Egypt? [17] And who made God angry for forty years? Wasn't it the people who sinned, whose corpses lay in the wilderness? [18] And to whom was God speaking when he took an oath that they would never enter his rest? Wasn't it the people who disobeyed him? [19] So we see that because of their unbelief they were not able to enter his rest.

So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. [2] For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished. [3] So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak? [4] And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose. [5] And furthermore, it is not angels who will control the future world we are talking about. [6] For in one place the Scriptures say, "What are mere mortals that you should think about them, or a son of man that you should care for him? [7] Yet you made them only a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. [8] You gave them authority over all things." Now when it says "all things," it means nothing is left out. But we have not yet seen all things put under their authority. [9] What we do see is Jesus, who was given a position "a little lower than the angels"; and because he suffered death for us, he is now "crowned with glory and honor." Yes, by God's grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone. [10] God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation. [11] So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters. [12] For he said to God, "I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters. I will praise you among your assembled people." [13] He also said, "I will put my trust in him," that is, "I and the children God has given me." [14] Because God's children are human beings-made of flesh and blood-the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. [15] Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying. [16] We also know that the Son did not come to help angels; he came to help the descendants of Abraham. [17] Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. [18] Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.

I will praise the L ord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. [2] I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart. [3] Come, let us tell of the Lord's greatness; let us exalt his name together. [4] I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. [5] Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. [6] In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; he saved me from all my troubles. [7] For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him. [8] Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! [9] Fear the Lord, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need. [10] Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing. [11] Come, my children, and listen to me, and I will teach you to fear the Lord. [12] Does anyone want to live a life that is long and prosperous? [13] Then keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies! [14] Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. [15] The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help. [16] But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil; he will erase their memory from the earth. [17] The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. [18] The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. [19] The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time. [20] For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken! [21] Calamity will surely overtake the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be punished. [22] But the L ord will redeem those who serve him. No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.

Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. [2] The rich and poor have this in common: The Lord made them both. [3] A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. [4] True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long life. [5] Corrupt people walk a thorny, treacherous road; whoever values life will avoid it. [6] Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. [7] Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender. [8] Those who plant injustice will harvest disaster, and their reign of terror will come to an end. [9] Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor. [10] Throw out the mocker, and fighting goes, too. Quarrels and insults will disappear. [11] Whoever loves a pure heart and gracious speech will have the king as a friend. [12] The Lord preserves those with knowledge, but he ruins the plans of the treacherous. [13] The lazy person claims, "There's a lion out there! If I go outside, I might be killed!" [14] The mouth of an immoral woman is a dangerous trap; those who make the Lord angry will fall into it. [15] A youngster's heart is filled with foolishness, but physical discipline will drive it far away. [16] A person who gets ahead by oppressing the poor or by showering gifts on the rich will end in poverty. [17] Listen to the words of the wise; apply your heart to my instruction. [18] For it is good to keep these sayings in your heart and always ready on your lips. [19] I am teaching you today-yes, you- so you will trust in the Lord. [20] I have written thirty sayings for you, filled with advice and knowledge. [21] In this way, you may know the truth and take an accurate report to those who sent you. [22] Don't rob the poor just because you can, or exploit the needy in court. [23] For the Lord is their defender. He will ruin anyone who ruins them. [24] Don't befriend angry people or associate with hot-tempered people, [25] or you will learn to be like them and endanger your soul. [26] Don't agree to guarantee another person's debt or put up security for someone else. [27] If you can't pay it, even your bed will be snatched from under you. [28] Don't cheat your neighbor by moving the ancient boundary markers set up by previous generations. [29] Do you see any truly competent workers? They will serve kings rather than working for ordinary people.

Here is the main point: We have a High Priest who sat down in the place of honor beside the throne of the majestic God in heaven. [2] There he ministers in the heavenly Tabernacle, the true place of worship that was built by the Lord and not by human hands. [3] And since every high priest is required to offer gifts and sacrifices, our High Priest must make an offering, too. [4] If he were here on earth, he would not even be a priest, since there already are priests who offer the gifts required by the law. [5] They serve in a system of worship that is only a copy, a shadow of the real one in heaven. For when Moses was getting ready to build the Tabernacle, God gave him this warning: "Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain." [6] But now Jesus, our High Priest, has been given a ministry that is far superior to the old priesthood, for he is the one who mediates for us a far better covenant with God, based on better promises. [7] If the first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no need for a second covenant to replace it. [8] But when God found fault with the people, he said: "The day is coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah. [9] This covenant will not be like the one I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and led them out of the land of Egypt. They did not remain faithful to my covenant, so I turned my back on them, says the Lord. [10] But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. [11] And they will not need to teach their neighbors, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, 'You should know the Lord.' For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already. [12] And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins." [13] When God speaks of a “new” covenant, it means he has made the first one obsolete. It is now out of date and will soon disappear.

Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor! The L ord rescues them when they are in trouble. [2] The Lord protects them and keeps them alive. He gives them prosperity in the land and rescues them from their enemies. [3] The Lord nurses them when they are sick and restores them to health. [4] "O Lord," I prayed, "have mercy on me. Heal me, for I have sinned against you." [5] But my enemies say nothing but evil about me. "How soon will he die and be forgotten?" they ask. [6] They visit me as if they were my friends, but all the while they gather gossip, and when they leave, they spread it everywhere. [7] All who hate me whisper about me, imagining the worst. [8] "He has some fatal disease," they say. "He will never get out of that bed!" [9] Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely, the one who shared my food, has turned against me. [10] Lord, have mercy on me. Make me well again, so I can pay them back! [11] I know you are pleased with me, for you have not let my enemies triumph over me. [12] You have preserved my life because I am innocent; you have brought me into your presence forever. [13] Praise the L ord, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and amen!

Don’t worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong. [2] For like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither. [3] Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. [4] Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart's desires. [5] Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. [6] He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun. [7] Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act. Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes. [8] Stop being angry! Turn from your rage! Do not lose your temper- it only leads to harm. [9] For the wicked will be destroyed, but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land. [10] Soon the wicked will disappear. Though you look for them, they will be gone. [11] The lowly will possess the land and will live in peace and prosperity. [12] The wicked plot against the godly; they snarl at them in defiance. [13] But the Lord just laughs, for he sees their day of judgment coming. [14] The wicked draw their swords and string their bows to kill the poor and the oppressed, to slaughter those who do right. [15] But their swords will stab their own hearts, and their bows will be broken. [16] It is better to be godly and have little than to be evil and rich. [17] For the strength of the wicked will be shattered, but the Lord takes care of the godly. [18] Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent, and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever. [19] They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough. [20] But the wicked will die. The Lord's enemies are like flowers in a field- they will disappear like smoke. [21] The wicked borrow and never repay, but the godly are generous givers. [22] Those the Lord blesses will possess the land, but those he curses will die. [23] The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. [24] Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. [25] Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread. [26] The godly always give generous loans to others, and their children are a blessing. [27] Turn from evil and do good, and you will live in the land forever. [28] For the Lord loves justice, and he will never abandon the godly. He will keep them safe forever, but the children of the wicked will die. [29] The godly will possess the land and will live there forever. [30] The godly offer good counsel; they teach right from wrong. [31] They have made God's law their own, so they will never slip from his path. [32] The wicked wait in ambush for the godly, looking for an excuse to kill them. [33] But the Lord will not let the wicked succeed or let the godly be condemned when they are put on trial. [34] Put your hope in the Lord. Travel steadily along his path. He will honor you by giving you the land. You will see the wicked destroyed. [35] I have seen wicked and ruthless people flourishing like a tree in its native soil. [36] But when I looked again, they were gone! Though I searched for them, I could not find them! [37] Look at those who are honest and good, for a wonderful future awaits those who love peace. [38] But the rebellious will be destroyed; they have no future. [39] The Lord rescues the godly; he is their fortress in times of trouble. [40] The L ord helps them, rescuing them from the wicked. He saves them, and they find shelter in him.
