Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many.
King James Bible
Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
American Standard Version
Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; And the years of thy life shall be many.
Young's Literal Translation
Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, And years of life are multiplied to thee.
Proverbs 4:10 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The years of thy life shall be many - Vice and intemperance impair the health and shorten the days of the wicked; while true religion, sobriety, and temperance, prolong them. The principal part of our diseases springs from "indolence, intemperance, and disorderly passions." Religion excites to industry, promotes sober habits, and destroys evil passions, and harmonizes the soul; and thus, by preventing many diseases, necessarily prolongs life.
