Proverbs 3 American Standard Version (ASV)

1 My son, forget not my laws; But let they heart keep my commandments; 2 For length of days, and years of life, And peace, will they add to thee. 3 Let not kindness and truth forsake thee; Bind them about thy neck; Write them upon the tablet of thy heart; 4 So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
