1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
2:1 ¶ My son, if thou wilt receive my sayings, and, my commandments, wilt treasure up by thee;
2:2 So that thou direct, unto wisdom, thine ear, bend thy heart, unto understanding;
2:3 Yea if, for understanding, thou cry aloud, for knowledge, utter thy voice;
2:4 If thou seek her as silver, and, like hid treasure, thou search for her,
2:7 Yea he treasureth, for the upright, safety, A shield [is he] to them who walk in integrity,
2:8 To him that observeth the paths of justice, yea, the way of his men of lovingkindness, he doth guard.
2:9 Then, shalt thou understand righteousness and justice, and equityevery noble course.
2:10 ¶ When wisdom entereth thy heart, and, knowledge, to thy soul, is sweet,
2:11 Discretion, shall watch over thee, understanding, shall preserve thee:
2:12 To rescue thee from the way of the wrongful, from the man that speaketh perverse things;
2:13 From them who forsake the paths of rectitude, to walk in the ways of darkness;
2:14 Who rejoice to do wrong, exult in the perversities of the wrongful;
2:15 Whose paths, are twisted, and they are tortuous in their tracks:
2:16 To rescue thee, from the woman that is a stranger, from the female unknown, who with her speeches seduceth;
2:17 Who forsaketh the friend of her youth, and, the covenant of her God, hath forgotten;
2:18 For she hath appointed, unto death, her house, and unto the shades, her courses;
2:19 None who go in unto her, come back, neither attain they unto the paths of life:
2:20 To the end that thou walk in the way of good men, and, the paths of the righteous, that thou observe.
2:21 For, the upright, shall abide on the earth,and, the men of integrity, shall remain therein;
2:22 But, the lawless, out of the earth, shall be cut off, and, traitors, shall they tear away therefrom.
