Proverbs 4:1-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

A Father’s Example

Listen, my sons, to a father’s discipline,
and pay attention so that you may gain understanding,
for I am giving you good instruction.
Don’t abandon my teaching.
When I was a son with my father,
tender and precious to my mother,
he taught me and said:
“Your heart must hold on to my words.
Keep my commands and live.

Proverbs 6:20-23 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Warning against Adultery

20 My son, keep your father’s command,
and don’t reject your mother’s teaching.
21 Always bind them to your heart;
tie them around your neck.
22 When you walk here and there, they will guide you;
when you lie down, they will watch over you;
when you wake up, they will talk to you.
23 For a command is a lamp, teaching is a light,
and corrective discipline is the way to life.

Proverbs 7:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

My son, obey my words,
and treasure my commands.
Keep my commands and live;
protect my teachings
as the pupil of your eye.
Tie them to your fingers;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
