and pretend I do not speak,
I am with you, and give you great richness of life.
Therefore, my children, listen to me: happy are those who open themselves to my speaking.
Hear instruction and be wise,
and do not neglect it.
Happy is the man who listens to me,
watching daily at my gates,
waiting beside my doors.
For he who finds me finds life
and gains the strength to grow in the god;
but he who misses me injures himself;
all who hate me love death."
