Exhortation to Wisdom
1. My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. 2. Keep my commandments and live; and my laws as the apple of thine eye:
Keep my commandments and live;
Lev.18:5> Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.
Prov.4:4> He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
Isa.55:3> Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
my laws as the apple of thine eye:
Deut. 32:10>He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. Prov.3:3>Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
3. Deut.6:8> And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
Prov.3:3> Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
Isa.30:8> Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
Jer.17:1> The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;
2Cor.3:3> Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
