Sweet as Honey
(יג) אֱכָל־בְּנִ֣י דְבַ֣שׁ כִּי־ט֑וֹב וְנֹ֥פֶת מָ֝ת֗וֹק עַל־חִכֶּֽךָ׃

(13) My son, eat honey, for it is good; Let its sweet drops be on your palate.

(יד) כֵּ֤ן ׀ דְּעֶ֥ה חָכְמָ֗ה לְנַ֫פְשֶׁ֥ךָ אִם־מָ֭צָאתָ וְיֵ֣שׁ אַחֲרִ֑ית וְ֝תִקְוָתְךָ֗ לֹ֣א תִכָּרֵֽת׃ (פ)

(14)Know: such is wisdom for your soul; If you attain it, there is a future; Your hope will not be cut off.
