Proverbs 1

The proverbs
<04912>
of Solomon
<08010>
the son
<01121>
of David
<01732>_,
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_;
To know
<03045> (8800)
wisdom
<02451>
and instruction
<04148>_;
to perceive
<0995> (8687)
the words
<0561>
of understanding
<0998>_;
To receive
<03947> (8800)
the instruction
<04148>
of wisdom
<07919> (8687)_,
justice
<06664>_,
and judgment
<04941>_,
and equity
<04339>_;
{equity: Heb. equities}
To give
<05414> (8800)
subtilty
<06195>
to the simple
<06612>_,
to the young man
<05288>
knowledge
<01847>
and discretion
<04209>_.
{discretion: or, advisement}
A wise
<02450>
[man] will hear
<08085> (8799)_,
and will increase
<03254> (8686)
learning
<03948>_;
and a man of understanding
<0995> (8737)
shall attain
<07069> (8799)
unto wise counsels
<08458>_:
To understand
<0995> (8687)
a proverb
<04912>_,
and the interpretation
<04426>_;
the words
<01697>
of the wise
<02450>_,
and their dark sayings
<02420>_.
{the interpretation: or, an eloquent speech}
The fear
<03374>
of the LORD
<03068>
[is] the beginning
<07225>
of knowledge
<01847>_:
[but] fools
<0191>
despise
<0936> (8804)
wisdom
<02451>
and instruction
<04148>_.
{the beginning: or, the principal part}
My son
<01121>_,
hear
<08085> (8798)
the instruction
<04148>
of thy father
<01>_,
and forsake
<05203> (8799)
not the law
<08451>
of thy mother
<0517>_:
For they [shall be] an ornament
<03880>
of grace
<02580>
unto thy head
<07218>_,
and chains
<06060>
about thy neck
<01621>_.
{an...: Heb. an adding}
My son
<01121>_,
if sinners
<02400>
entice
<06601> (8762)
thee, consent
<014> (8799)
thou not.
If they say
<0559> (8799)_,
Come
<03212> (8798)
with us, let us lay wait
<0693> (8799)
for blood
<01818>_,
let us lurk
<06845> (8799)
privily for the innocent
<05355>
without cause
<02600>_:
Let us swallow them up
<01104> (8799)
alive
<02416>
as the grave
<07585>_;
and whole
<08549>_,
as those that go down
<03381> (8802)
into the pit
<0953>_:
We shall find
<04672> (8799)
all precious
<03368>
substance
<01952>_,
we shall fill
<04390> (8762)
our houses
<01004>
with spoil
<07998>_:
Cast
<05307> (8686)
in thy lot
<01486>
among
<08432>
us; let us all have one
<0259>
purse
<03599>_:
My son
<01121>_,
walk
<03212> (8799)
not thou in the way
<01870>
with them; refrain
<04513> (8798)
thy foot
<07272>
from their path
<05410>_:
For their feet
<07272>
run
<07323> (8799)
to evil
<07451>_,
and make haste
<04116> (8762)
to shed
<08210> (8800)
blood
<01818>_.
Surely in vain
<02600>
the net
<07568>
is spread
<02219> (8794)
in the sight
<05869>
of any bird
<01167> <03671>_.
{in the...: Heb. in the eyes of every thing that hath a wing}
And they lay wait
<0693> (8799)
for their [own] blood
<01818>_;
they lurk privily
<06845> (8799)
for their [own] lives
<05315>_.
So [are] the ways
<0734>
of every one that is greedy
<01214> (8802)
of gain
<01215>_;
[which] taketh away
<03947> (8799)
the life
<05315>
of the owners
<01167>
thereof.
Wisdom
<02454>
crieth
<07442> (8799)
without
<02351>_;
she uttereth
<05414> (8799)
her voice
<06963>
in the streets
<07339>_:
{Wisdom: Heb. Wisdoms, that is, Excellent wisdom}
She crieth
<07121> (8799)
in the chief place
<07218>
of concourse
<01993> (8802)_,
in the openings
<06607>
of the gates
<08179>_:
in the city
<05892>
she uttereth
<0559> (8799)
her words
<0561>_,
[saying],
How long, ye simple ones
<06612>_,
will ye love
<0157> (8799)
simplicity
<06612>_?
and the scorners
<03887> (8801)
delight
<02530> (8804)
in their scorning
<03944>_,
and fools
<03684>
hate
<08130> (8799)
knowledge
<01847>_?
Turn
<07725> (8799)
you at my reproof
<08433>_:
behold, I will pour out
<05042> (8686)
my spirit
<07307>
unto you, I will make known
<03045> (8686)
my words
<01697>
unto you.
Because I have called
<07121> (8804)_,
and ye refused
<03985> (8762)_;
I have stretched out
<05186> (8804)
my hand
<03027>_,
and no man regarded
<07181> (8688)_;
But ye have set at nought
<06544> (8799)
all my counsel
<06098>_,
and would
<014> (8804)
none of my reproof
<08433>_:
I also will laugh
<07832> (8799)
at your calamity
<0343>_;
I will mock
<03932> (8799)
when your fear
<06343>
cometh
<0935> (8800)_;
When your fear
<06343>
cometh
<0935> (8800)
as desolation
<07722> (8675) <07584>_,
and your destruction
<0343>
cometh
<0857> (8799)
as a whirlwind
<05492>_;
when distress
<06869>
and anguish
<06695>
cometh
<0935> (8800)
upon you.
Then shall they call
<07121> (8799)
upon me, but I will not answer
<06030> (8799)_;
they shall seek me early
<07836> (8762)_,
but they shall not find
<04672> (8799)
me:
For that they hated
<08130> (8804)
knowledge
<01847>_,
and did not choose
<0977> (8804)
the fear
<03374>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
They would
<014> (8804)
none of my counsel
<06098>_:
they despised
<05006> (8804)
all my reproof
<08433>_.
Therefore shall they eat
<0398> (8799)
of the fruit
<06529>
of their own way
<01870>_,
and be filled
<07646> (8799)
with their own devices
<04156>_.
For the turning away
<04878>
of the simple
<06612>
shall slay
<02026> (8799)
them, and the prosperity
<07962>
of fools
<03684>
shall destroy
<06> (8762)
them. {turning...: or, ease of the simple}
But whoso hearkeneth
<08085> (8802)
unto me shall dwell
<07931> (8799)
safely
<0983>_,
and shall be quiet
<07599> (8768)
from fear
<06343>
of evil
<07451>_.
