1 My son, do not forget my Torah,
And let your heart watch over my Commands;

2 For length of days and long life
And peace they add to you.

3 Let not kindness and truth forsake you –
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,

4 Thus finding favour and good insight
In the eyes of Elohim and man.

5 Trust in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;

6 Know Him in all your ways,
And He makes all your paths straight.

7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Revere 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and turn away from evil.

8 It is healing to your navel,
And moistening to your bones.

9 Esteem with your goods,
And with the first-fruits of all your increase;

10 Then your storehouses shall be filled with plenty,
And your vats overflow with new wine.

11 My son, do not despise the discipline of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
And do not loathe His reproof;

12 For whom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 loves He reproves,
As a father the son whom he delights in.

13 Baruḵ is the man who has found wisdom,
And the man who gets understanding;

14 For the gain from it is better
Than gain from silver,
And its increase than fine gold.

15 She is more precious than rubies,
And all your delights are not comparable to her.

16 Length of days is in her right hand,
Riches and esteem in her left hand.

17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
And all her paths are peace.

18 She is a tree of ḥai to those taking hold of her,
And baruḵ are all who retain her

19 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 founded the earth by wisdom;
He established the shamayim by understanding;

20 By His knowledge the depths were broken up,
And clouds drop down dew.

21 My son, let them not depart from your eyes;
Watch over sound wisdom and discretion;

22 Then they become ḥai to your being
And an adorning to your neck.

23 Then you would walk safely in your way,
And your foot would not stumble.

24 When you lie down, you need not be afraid.
And you shall lie down and your sleep shall be sweet.

25 Do not be afraid of sudden dread,
Nor of the ruin of the wicked when it comes;

26 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is at your side,
And He shall guard your foot from being caught.

27 Do not withhold good from those who deserve it,
When it is in the power of your hand to do so.

28 Do not say to your neighbour, “Go, and come back,
And tomorrow I give it,” when you have it with you.

29 Do not plan evil against your neighbour,
Seeing he dwells safely beside you.

30 Do not strive with a man without cause,
If he has done you no evil.

31 Do not envy a violent man,
And choose none of his ways;

32 For the perverse one is an abomination to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
And His secret counsel is with the straight.

33 The curse of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is on the house of the wicked,
But He baraḵ the home of the righteous.

34 He certainly scoffs the scoffers,
But gives favour to the humble.

35 The wise inherit esteem,
But fools are bearing away shame!
