Book of Proverbs
20 My son, observe the commandment of your father and do not forsake the teaching of your mother; 21 Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck. 22 When you walk about, they will guide you; When you sleep, they will watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk to you. 23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; and reproofs for discipline are the way of life 24 To keep you from the evil woman, from the smooth tongue of the adulteress. - Proverbs 6:20-24
1 My son, keep my words and treasure my commandments within you.
