Proverbs 3:1-2 My son, forget not my law; but LET your heart keep My commandments:  For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall My commandments add to thee.
For length of days,
And long life, and peace,
Shall My commandments add unto thee.
(Seek First the Kingdom of God and all these shall be added ...the length of days, and long Life, and peace shall My commandments add: to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.
 For if these things (FIRST) )be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:5-8
Write My commandments upon the table of your heart (Proverbs 3: 3) 2 Corinthians 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be THE EPISTLE OF CHRIST ministered by us, WRITTEN NOT WITH INK, BUT WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD; not in tables of stone, but IN FLESHLY TABLES OF THE HEART. (Write MY commandments upon the table of your heart) written not with ink, but Written with the spirit of the Living God. (A new heart and Spirt will I give unto you) not a spirit of fear but of love and power and a sound mind.
So shall you find favour and good understanding IN THE SIGHT OF GOD AND MAN (proverbs 3:4) 2 Corinthians 7:12 Wherefore, though I wrote unto you, I did it not for his cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered wrong, but that our care for you IN THE SIGHT OF GOD might appear unto you (man). (In the sight of God and man) “our care for you might appear”
Honour the Lord with thy substance, with the first fruits of all thine increase (Proverbs 3:9) 1 Corinthians 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and BECOME THE FIRSTFRUITS of them that slept. (Of all thine increase)
1 Corinthians 15:22-23 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Shall be made alive
To live: completeness, soundness, welfare, peace.
But every man in his own order: CHRIST THE FIRSTFRUITS (of all thine increase); afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. (proverbs 3:10) so shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding. for the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain (Godliness with contentment is great gain) the gain thereof more than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou can desire ARE NOT TO BE COMPARED UNTO HER (Proverbs 3: 13-15) Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE COMPARED WITH THE GLORY which shall be revealed in us.
All things thou desire are not to be compared unto her... 1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teaches(that you ought to love one another; COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL.
She is a tree of Life to them that lay hold upon her: and HAPPY IS EVERYONE THAT RETAINS HER. (Proverbs 3: 18) Romans 1:28 And even as THEY DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN GOD IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
(proverbs 3:20) BY HIS KNOWLEDGE ARE THE DEPTHS BROKEN UP, and the clouds drop down the dew. 2 Peter 1:4-8 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;  And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;  And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.  For if these things (First) be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (For By His knowledge the depths are broken up: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.) instead let this heart (mind) be in you that was in Christ. Philippians 2:3-5 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.  Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
My son, let not My commandments depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion. 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and OF A SOUND MIND.
Psalm 119:80 Let my HEART BE SOUND in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.
Proverbs 14:30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
...but LET thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life,
and peace, shall My commandments add to thee.
To live: completeness, soundness, welfare, peace.
