Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;
Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame.
Making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding;
He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Cease to hear instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.
But whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.
Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold is a wise reprover to a listening ear.
