1898 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
2:1 ¶ My son, if thou dost accept my sayings, And my commands dost lay up with thee,
2:2 To cause thine ear to attend to wisdom, Thou inclinest thy heart to understanding,
2:3 For, if for intelligence thou callest, For understanding givest forth thy voice,
2:4 If thou dost seek her as silver, And as hid treasures searchest for her,
2:7 Even to lay up for the upright substance, A shield for those walking uprightly.
2:8 To keep the paths of judgment, And the way of His saints He preserveth.
2:9 Then understandest thou righteousness, And judgment, and uprightnessevery good path.
2:10 ¶ For wisdom cometh into thy heart, And knowledge to thy soul is pleasant,
2:11 Thoughtfulness doth watch over thee, Understanding doth keep thee,
2:12 To deliver thee from an evil way, From any speaking froward things,
2:13 Who are forsaking paths of uprightness, To walk in ways of darkness,
2:14 Who are rejoicing to do evil, They delight in frowardness of the wicked,
2:15 Whose paths [are] crooked, Yea, they are perverted in their ways.
2:16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, From the stranger who hath made smooth her sayings,
2:17 Who is forsaking the guide of her youth, And the covenant of her God hath forgotten.
2:18 For her house hath inclined unto death, And unto Rephaim her paths.
2:19 None going in unto her turn back, Nor do they reach the paths of life.
2:20 That thou dost go in the way of the good, And the paths of the righteous dost keep.
2:21 For the upright do inhabit the earth, And the perfect are left in it,
2:22 And the wicked from the earth are cut off, And treacherous dealers plucked out of it!
