Proverbs 8

Doth not wisdom
<02451>
cry
<07121> (8799)_?
and understanding
<08394>
put forth
<05414> (8799)
her voice
<06963>_?
She standeth
<05324> (8738)
in the top
<07218>
of high places
<04791>_,
by the way
<01870>
in the places
<01004>
of the paths
<05410>_.
She crieth
<07442> (8799)
at
<03027>
the gates
<08179>_,
at the entry
<06310>
of the city
<07176>_,
at the coming
<03996>
in at the doors
<06607>_.
Unto you, O men
<0376>_,
I call
<07121> (8799)_;
and my voice
<06963>
[is] to the sons
<01121>
of man
<0120>_.
O ye simple
<06612>_,
understand
<0995> (8685)
wisdom
<06195>_:
and, ye fools
<03684>_,
be ye of an understanding
<0995> (8685)
heart
<03820>_.
Hear
<08085> (8798)_;
for I will speak
<01696> (8762)
of excellent things
<05057>_;
and the opening
<04669>
of my lips
<08193>
[shall be] right things
<04339>_.
For my mouth
<02441>
shall speak
<01897> (8799)
truth
<0571>_;
and wickedness
<07562>
[is] an abomination
<08441>
to my lips
<08193>_.
{an...: Heb. the abomination of my lips}
All the words
<0561>
of my mouth
<06310>
[are] in righteousness
<06664>_;
[there is] nothing froward
<06617> (8737)
or perverse
<06141>
in them. {froward: Heb. wreathed}
They [are] all plain
<05228>
to him that understandeth
<0995> (8688)_,
and right
<03477>
to them that find
<04672> (8802)
knowledge
<01847>_.
Receive
<03947> (8798)
my instruction
<04148>_,
and not silver
<03701>_;
and knowledge
<01847>
rather than choice
<0977> (8737)
gold
<02742>_.
For wisdom
<02451>
[is] better
<02896>
than rubies
<06443>_;
and all the things that may be desired
<02656>
are not to be compared
<07737> (8799)
to it.
I wisdom
<02451>
dwell
<07931> (8804)
with prudence
<06195>_,
and find out
<04672> (8799)
knowledge
<01847>
of witty inventions
<04209>_.
{prudence: or, subtilty}
The fear
<03374>
of the LORD
<03068>
[is] to hate
<08130> (8800)
evil
<07451>_:
pride
<01344>_,
and arrogancy
<01347>_,
and the evil
<07451>
way
<01870>_,
and the froward
<08419>
mouth
<06310>_,
do I hate
<08130> (8804)_.
Counsel
<06098>
[is] mine, and sound wisdom
<08454>_:
I [am] understanding
<0998>_;
I have strength
<01369>_.
By me kings
<04428>
reign
<04427> (8799)_,
and princes
<07336> (8802)
decree
<02710> (8779)
justice
<06664>_.
By me princes
<08269>
rule
<08323> (8799)_,
and nobles
<05081>_,
[even] all the judges
<08199> (8802)
of the earth
<0776>_.
I love
<0157> (8799)
them that love
<0157> (8802)
me; and those that seek me early
<07836> (8764)
shall find
<04672> (8799)
me.
Riches
<06239>
and honour
<03519>
[are] with me; [yea], durable
<06276>
riches
<01952>
and righteousness
<06666>_.
My fruit
<06529>
[is] better
<02896>
than gold
<02742>_,
yea, than fine gold
<06337>_;
and my revenue
<08393>
than choice
<0977> (8737)
silver
<03701>_.
I lead
<01980> (8762)
in the way
<0734>
of righteousness
<06666>_,
in the midst
<08432>
of the paths
<05410>
of judgment
<04941>_:
{lead: or, walk}
That I may cause those that love
<0157> (8802)
me to inherit
<05157> (8687)
substance
<03426>_;
and I will fill
<04390> (8762)
their treasures
<0214>_.
The LORD
<03068>
possessed
<07069> (8804)
me in the beginning
<07225>
of his way
<01870>_,
before
<06924>
his works
<04659>
of old.
I was set up
<05258> (8738)
from everlasting
<05769>_,
from the beginning
<07218>_,
or ever
<06924>
the earth
<0776>
was.
When [there were] no depths
<08415>_,
I was brought forth
<02342> (8797)_;
when [there were] no fountains
<04599>
abounding
<03513> (8737)
with water
<04325>_.
Before the mountains
<02022>
were settled
<02883> (8717)_,
before
<06440>
the hills
<01389>
was I brought forth
<02342> (8797)_:
While as yet he had not made
<06213> (8804)
the earth
<0776>_,
nor the fields
<02351>_,
nor the highest part
<07218>
of the dust
<06083>
of the world
<08398>_.
{fields: or, open places} {the highest...: or, the chief part}
When he prepared
<03559> (8687)
the heavens
<08064>_,
I [was] there: when he set
<02710> (8800)
a compass
<02329>
upon the face
<06440>
of the depth
<08415>_:
{a compass: or, a circle}
When he established
<0553> (8763)
the clouds
<07834>
above
<04605>_:
when he strengthened
<05810> (8800)
the fountains
<05869>
of the deep
<08415>_:
When he gave
<07760> (8800)
to the sea
<03220>
his decree
<02706>_,
that the waters
<04325>
should not pass
<05674> (8799)
his commandment
<06310>_:
when he appointed
<02710> (8800)
the foundations
<04144>
of the earth
<0776>_:
Then I was by him
<0681>_,
[as] one brought up
<0525>
[with him]: and I was daily
<03117> <03117>
[his] delight
<08191>_,
rejoicing
<07832> (8764)
always
<06256>
before
<06440>
him;
Rejoicing
<07832> (8764)
in the habitable part
<08398>
of his earth
<0776>_;
and my delights
<08191>
[were] with the sons
<01121>
of men
<0120>_.
Now therefore hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me, O ye children
<01121>_:
for blessed
<0835>
[are they that] keep
<08104> (8799)
my ways
<01870>_.
Hear
<08085> (8798)
instruction
<04148>_,
and be wise
<02449> (8798)_,
and refuse
<06544> (8799)
it not.
Blessed
<0835>
[is] the man
<0120>
that heareth
<08085> (8802)
me, watching
<08245> (8800)
daily
<03117> <03117>
at my gates
<01817>_,
waiting
<08104> (8800)
at the posts
<04201>
of my doors
<06607>_.
For whoso findeth
<04672> (8802)
me findeth
<04672> (8804) (8675) <04672> (8802)
life
<02416>_,
and shall obtain
<06329> (8686)
favour
<07522>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{obtain: Heb. bring forth}
But he that sinneth
<02398> (8802)
against me wrongeth
<02554> (8802)
his own soul
<05315>_:
all they that hate
<08130> (8764)
me love
<0157> (8804)
death
<04194>_.
