Loyalty and faithfulness
Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them round your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good repute
in the sight of God and of people.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own insight.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
My child, do not despise the Lord?s discipline
or be weary of his reproof,
for the Lord reproves the one he loves,
as a father the son in whom he delights.
