Accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart.
"Please receive instruction from His mouth And establish His words in your heart.
Listen to his instructions, and store them in your heart.
Let him tell you what to do; take his words to heart.
Be pleased to take teaching from his mouth, and let his words be stored up in your heart.
Receive instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart.
Receive, please, instruction from His mouth, And lay up His words in your heart.
