"... But wisdom is justified of her children." (Matthew 11:19).
In Proverbs 4, the writer requests a listening, a hearing, and an application to words that he gives to his son in verses 1-4.
1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.
3 For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
