For wisdom is to get wisdom,
And learning about our Creator.
Honour your father and your mother,
Your life expectancy will be greater.
Save up spiritual treasures,
Forget the earthly things you cherish.
Don’t rely on mere people
As they will easily perish.
Instead rely on the Great Spirit
To supply your water and bread.
Then the blessings of the Lord
Will be like a waterfall on your head.
By looking around and reading His word,
One thing in life I have observed;
Live lovingly according to His law
And you will get exactly what your deeds deserve.
