The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you all.
A foolish person finds pleasure in doing evil things. But a man who has understanding takes delight in wisdom.
Who is like a wise man? Who knows how to explain things? Wisdom makes a man’s face bright. It softens the look on his face.
Let Christ’s word live in you like a rich treasure. Teach and correct each other wisely. Sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing with thanks in your hearts to God.
Those whose hearts understand what is right get knowledge. The ears of those who are wise listen for it.
If any of you need wisdom, ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone. He doesn’t find fault.
Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them.
