Proverbs 4:6

Context

4:6 Do not forsake wisdom, 1  and she will protect you;

love her, and she will guard you.

Proverbs 4:8

Context

4:8 Esteem her highly 2  and she will exalt you;

she will honor you if you embrace her.

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 verb is the Pilpel imperative from סָלַל (salal, “to lift up; to cast up”). So the imperative means “exalt her; esteem her highly; prize her.”
