33

Hear instruction and be wise,

and do not neglect it.

34

Happy is the one who listens to me,

watching daily at my gates,

waiting beside my doors.

35

For whoever finds me finds life

and obtains favor from the Lord;

36

but those who miss me injure themselves;

all who hate me love death.”
