How Many Ifs

IF you indeed cry out for insight
IF you raise your voice for understanding
IF you seek it like silver

THEN you will understand the fear of the LORD
THEN you will find the knowledge of God
THEN you will understand righteousness and justice
THEN wisdom will come to your heart
THEN prudence will watch over you
THEN understanding will come to you
THEN it will save you from the way of evil
THEN you will be saved from those who speak evil against you
THEN you will be saved from the smooth words that tempt you away

How many THENS await just a few IFS!!!
