Be Clever; be Faithful, Intelligent, too

Disgrace is for those who instruction ignore.

Despise teaching, you’ll find destruction and more. 

Good sense will win favor, but folly make sad,

and learning from errors will make your heart glad.


The snares of death surround us. Be careful, avoid. 

And faithless ways lead to where you’ll be destroyed. 

Be clever, be faithful, intelligent too. 

Wise teaching’s life giving and healing for you.
