Proverbs 4: 1-9 (NRSVA)

1 Listen, children, to a father’s instruction,
    and be attentive, that you may gain insight;
2 for I give you good precepts:
    do not forsake my teaching.
3 When I was a son with my father,
    tender, and my mother’s favourite,
4 he taught me, and said to me,
‘Let your heart hold fast my words;
    keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom; get insight: do not forget, nor turn away
    from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
    love her, and she will guard you.
7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
    and whatever else you get, get insight.
8 Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
    she will honour you if you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head a fair garland;
    she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.’

Wisdom will give you a beautiful crown.
