    Proverbs 4:10-13 New International Version (NIV)
    10 Listen, my son, accept what I say,
    and the years of your life will be many.
    11 I instruct you in the way of wisdom
    and lead you along straight paths.
    12 When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;
    when you run, you will not stumble.
    13 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;
    guard it well, for it is your life.
