love her, and she will guard you.

Proverbs 4:21

Context

4:21 Do not let them depart 2  from your sight,

guard 3  them within your heart; 4 

1 tn Heb “her”; the 3rd person feminine singular referent is personified “wisdom,” which has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn The Hiphil form יַלִּיזוּ (yallizu) follows the Aramaic with gemination. The verb means “to turn aside; to depart” (intransitive Hiphil or inner causative).

3 tn Or “keep” (so KJV, NIV, NRSV and many others).

4 sn The words “eyes” and “heart” are metonymies of subject representing the faculties of each. Cf. CEV “think about it all.”
