Proverbs 4 - Versions
Proverbs 4 Text (WEB)
  1. Listen, sons, to a father's instruction. Pay attention and know understanding;
  2. for I give you sound learning. Don't forsake my law.
  3. For I was a son to my father, tender and an only child in the sight of my mother.
  4. He taught me, and said to me: "Let your heart retain my words. Keep my commandments, and live.
  5. Get wisdom. Get understanding. Don't forget, neither swerve from the words of my mouth.
  6. Don't forsake her, and she will preserve you. Love her, and she will keep you.
  7. Wisdom is supreme. Get wisdom. Yes, though it costs all your possessions, get understanding.
  8. Esteem her, and she will exalt you. She will bring you to honor, when you embrace her.
  9. She will give to your head a garland of grace. She will deliver a crown of splendor to you."
  10. Listen, my son, and receive my sayings. The years of your life will be many.
  11. I have taught you in the way of wisdom. I have led you in straight paths.
  12. When you go, your steps will not be hampered. When you run, you will not stumble.
  13. Take firm hold of instruction. Don't let her go. Keep her, for she is your life.
  14. Don't enter into the path of the wicked. Don't walk in the way of evil men.
  15. Avoid it, and don't pass by it. Turn from it, and pass on.
  16. For they don't sleep, unless they do evil. Their sleep is taken away, unless they make someone fall.
  17. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
  18. But the path of the righteous is like the dawning light, that shines more and more until the perfect day.
  19. The way of the wicked is like darkness. They don't know what they stumble over.
  20. My son, attend to my words. Turn your ear to my sayings.
  21. Let them not depart from your eyes. Keep them in the midst of your heart.
  22. For they are life to those who find them, and health to their whole body.
  23. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it is the wellspring of life.
  24. Put away from yourself a perverse mouth. Put corrupt lips far from you.
  25. Let your eyes look straight ahead. Fix your gaze directly before you.
  26. Make the path of your feet level. Let all of your ways be established.
  27. Don't turn to the right hand nor to the left. Remove your foot from evil.

Proverbs 4 Text (Latin)
  1. Audite, filii, disciplinam patris, et attendite ut sciatis prudentiam.
  2. Donum bonum tribuam vobis : legem meam ne derelinquatis.
  3. Nam et ego filius fui patris mei, tenellus et unigenitus coram matre mea.
  4. Et docebat me, atque dicebat : Suscipiat verba mea cor tuum ; custodi præcepta mea, et vives.
  5. Posside sapientiam, posside prudentiam. Ne obliviscaris, neque declines a verbis oris mei.
  6. Ne dimittas eam, et custodiet te : dilige eam, et conservabit te.
  7. Principium sapientiæ, posside sapientiam ; et in omni possessione tua acquire prudentiam.
  8. Arripe illam, et exaltabit te ; glorificaberis ab ea cum eam fueris amplexatus.
  9. Dabit capiti tuo augmenta gratiarum, et corona inclyta proteget te.
  10. Audi, fili mi, et suscipe verba mea, ut multiplicentur tibi anni vitæ.
  11. Viam sapientiæ monstrabo tibi ; ducam te per semitas æquitatis ;
  12. quas cum ingressus fueris, non arctabuntur gressus tui, et currens non habebis offendiculum.
  13. Tene disciplinam, ne dimittas eam ; custodi illam, quia ipsa est vita tua.
  14. Ne delecteris in semitis impiorum, nec tibi placeat malorum via.
  15. Fuge ab ea, nec transeas per illam ; declina, et desere eam.
  16. Non enim dormiunt nisi malefecerint, et rapitur somnus ab eis nisi supplantaverint.
  17. Comedunt panem impietatis, et vinum iniquitatis bibunt.
  18. Justorum autem semita quasi lux splendens procedit, et crescit usque ad perfectam diem.
  19. Via impiorum tenebrosa ; nesciunt ubi corruant.
  20. Fili mi, ausculta sermones meos, et ad eloquia mea inclina aurem tuam.
  21. Ne recedant ab oculis tuis, custodi ea in medio cordis tui :
  22. vita enim sunt invenientibus ea, et universæ carni sanitas.
  23. Omni custodia serva cor tuum, quia ex ipso vita procedit.
  24. Remove a te os pravum, et detrahentia labia sint procul a te.
  25. Oculi tui recta videant, et palpebræ tuæ præcedant gressus tuos.
  26. Dirige semitam pedibus tuis, et omnes viæ tuæ stabilientur.
  27. Ne declines ad dexteram neque ad sinistram ; averte pedem tuum a malo : vias enim quæ a dextris sunt novit Dominus : perversæ vero sunt quæ a sinistris sunt. Ipse autem rectos faciet cursus tuos, itinera autem tua in pace producet.
