Proverbs Chapter 3 : 11-20 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 11 My son, don't despise Yahweh's discipline, neither be weary of his reproof:
  • 12 for whom Yahweh loves, he reproves; even as a father reproves the son in whom he delights.
  • 13 Happy is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gets understanding.
  • 14 For her good profit is better than getting silver, and her return is better than fine gold.
  • 15 She is more precious than rubies. None of the things you can desire are to be compared to her.
  • 16 Length of days is in her right hand. In her left hand are riches and honor.
  • 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness. All her paths are peace.
  • 18 She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her. Happy is everyone who retains her.
  • 19 By wisdom Yahweh founded the earth. By understanding, he established the heavens.
  • 20 By his knowledge, the depths were broken up, and the skies drop down the dew.
  • Webster's Bible [WB]
  • 11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
  • 12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
  • 13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
  • 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain of it than fine gold.
  • 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared to her.
  • 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor.
  • 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
  • 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
