Now therefore, if you will truly obey my voice, and keep my covenant, then shall ye be unto me a peculiar treasure above all nations; for all the earth is mine:
Let kindness and truth not forsake thee; bind them about thy throat; write them upon the table of thy heart:
So shalt thou find grace and good favor in the eyes of God and man.
Like choice silver is the tongue of the righteous: the heart of the wicked is worth but very little.
Since thou art precious in my eyes, art honorable, and I indeed do love thee: therefore will I give men in place of thee, and nations instead of thy soul.
Arise, give light, for thy light is come; and the glory of the Lord is shining forth over thee.
Who can find a virtuous woman: for far above pearls is her value.
