Proverbs 23:12


23:12 Apply 1  your heart to instruction

and your ears to the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 23:19


23:19 Listen, my child, 2  and be wise,

and guide your heart on the right way.

1 tn Heb “bring.” The Hiphil imperative “come; enter” means “to apply the heart,” to use the heart or mind in the process. The same would be true in the second half: “to bring the ears” would mean to listen very carefully. Cf. TEV “Pay attention.”

2 tn Heb “my son,” but the immediate context does not limit this to male children.
