“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

“Behold, a greater than Solomon is here.”

Not only did He teach the truth, but He was the truth. It was this that gave His teaching power. Education, p. 78.

I encourage you to do your own substitutions.

Pro 3:1 God’s Son forgot not His Father’s Law; but let His heart keep His God’s commandments:
Pro 3:2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, did they add to Him.
Pro 3:3 He let not mercy and truth forsake Him: He bound them about His neck; He wrote them upon the table of His heart:
Pro 3:4 So did He find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. “Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” (Lk. 2:52)
Pro 3:5 He trusted in His Father with all His heart; and leaned not unto His own understanding. “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He seeth the Father do: for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.” (Jn. 5:19).
Pro 3:6 In all His ways He acknowledged His God, and He directed His beloved Servant’s paths. “For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth Him all things that Himself doeth: and He will shew Him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.” (Jn. 5:20).
Pro 3:7 He was not wise in His own eyes: He feared the Lord, and departed from evil.
Pro 3:8 It was health to His stomach, and life and strength to His body.
Pro 3:9 He honoured His Father with His substance, and with the firstfruits of all His increase:
Pro 3:10 So were His barns filled with plenty, and His presses bursted out with new wine.
Pro 3:11 His Son despised not the chastening of His Father; neither did He weary of His King’s correction:
Pro 3:12 For He Father loved Him and corrected Him; even a Father the Son in whom He delighted. “Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered.” (Heb. 5:8).
Pro 3:13 Happy was this Man that found wisdom, and this young Man that got understanding. “In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in Thy sight.” (Lk. 10:21).
Pro 3:14 Christ’s merchandise of wisdom was better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matt. 6:33).
Pro 3:15 His Father’s character was more precious to Him than rubies: and all the things He could desire were not to be compared unto knowing God. “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mat 16:26).
Pro 3:16 Length of days were in the knowledge of His Father; as were riches and honour. “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.” (Is. 55:1-3).
Pro 3:17 Jesus’ precepts were ways of pleasantness, and all His paths were peace. “For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” (Is. 55:12,13).
Pro 3:18 His words were a tree of life to them that layed hold upon them: and happy was every one that retaineth them. “He opened His mouth, and taught them, saying,” “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me; because the Lord hath anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord , and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of [My Father], that He might be glorified.” (Matt. 5:2;Is. 61:1-3).
Pro 3:19 Christ by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens.
Pro 3:20 By His Father’s knowledge He saw that the depths were broken up, and the clouds dropped down the dew.
Pro 3:21 His Son, let not them depart from His eyes: He kept sound wisdom and discretion:
Pro 3:22 So shall they were life unto His soul, and grace to His neck.
Pro 3:23 Thus He walked in His Father’s way safely, and His foot did not stumble.
Pro 3:24 When He lied down, He did not get afraid: yea, He laid down, and His sleep shall be sweet.
Pro 3:25 He was not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it came.
Pro 3:26 For the Lord was His confidence, and kept His foot from being taken.
Pro 3:27 Jesus withheld not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of His hand to do it.
Pro 3:28 He said not unto His neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when He had it by Him.
Pro 3:29 He devised not evil against His neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by Him.
Pro 3:30 Jesus strove not with a man without cause, if he had done Him no harm.
Pro 3:31 He envied not the oppressor, and chose none of his ways.
Pro 3:32 For the froward was abomination to His Father: but His Father’s secret is with His righteous.
Pro 3:33 The curse of His Father was in the house of the wicked: but He blessed the habitation of the just.
Pro 3:34 Surely His Daddy scorned the scorners: but He giveth grace unto the lowly.
Pro 3:35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
