Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
Solomon reveals the eternal value when people respond to wisdom – there are blessing on those who listen to her instruction and walk in her ways and happiness to those who wait daily on her and are faithful to keep her close to them.
