My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; (Proverbs 2:1)
My son.
 The return to the address, “my son,” indicates that Solomon is no longer speaking in the name of wisdom. The series of conditional clauses that begins here leads up to the conclusions in vs. 5 and 9. The appeal to hide the commandments refers to the storing away of words for guidance in future difficulties.
