The foolishness of man ruins his way,
And his heart rages against the Lord.
He who gets wisdom loves his own soul;
He who keeps understanding will find good.
House and wealth are an inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the Lord.
Discipline your son while there is hope,
And do not desire his death.
Many plans are in a man’s heart,
But the counsel of the Lord will stand.
What is desirable in a man is his kindness,
And it is better to be a poor man than a liar.
The fear of the Lord leads to life,
So that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.
from Proverbs 19

Thus they are to keep charge of the tent of meeting, and charge of the holy place, and charge of the sons of Aaron their relatives, for the service of the house of the Lord.
