The Lord will protect your coming and going both now and forever.
My son, don’t forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commands; for they will bring you many days, a full life, and well-being.
Never let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Tie them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will find favor and high regard in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.
Don’t consider yourself to be wise; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. This will be healing for your body
and strengthening for your bones.
