1. Do not plug your ears to God’s word (1-2)
 My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments,
 for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you.
2. Do not harden your heart (3-4)
 Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart.  So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.
3. Do not lean on yourself (5-6)
 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
4. Do not let your eyes get too big(7-8)
 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.
 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.
5. Do not clench your fists (9-10)
 Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce;
 then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.
6. Do not numb the pain (11-12)
 My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline or be weary of his reproof,
 for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
