A comparison of the King James and the New Life Translation Versions of Proverbs 2 of the Bible.

Wisdom Delivers  From Evil  (vs 1-11) KJV

1- My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

2- So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

3-Yea if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

4- If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

5- Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

6- For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

7- He  layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

8- He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

9- Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

10-When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

11- Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
