Psalm 124; Proverbs 7:1-4; Ephesians 4:7-16
My son, keep my words.
Lay up my commandments within you.
Keep my commandments and live!
Guard my teaching as the apple of your eye.
Bind them on your fingers.
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Tell wisdom, “You are my sister.”
Call understanding your relative. — Proverbs 7:1-4
