Proverbs 1:20, 20:15, 4:7, 24:5, 3:13; Psalm 90:12 [Portuguese]

20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets

15 There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Proverbs 3:1-12

1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

9 Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:

12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
