侧耳听智慧,专心求聪明。
turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding,
2:3
呼求明哲,扬声求聪明,
and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding,
2:4
寻找他如寻找银子,搜求他如搜求隐藏的珍宝,

他给正直人存留真智慧,给行为纯正的人作盾牌。
He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,

为要保守公平人的路,护庇虔敬人的道。
for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.

那等人舍弃正直的路,行走黑暗的道,
who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways,

欢喜作恶,喜爱恶人的乖僻。
who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,

惟有恶人必然剪除。奸诈的必然拔出。
but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.
