Proverbs Chapter 8

- ; , . 1 Doth not wisdom call, and understanding put forth her voice?
- -; . 2 In the top of high places by the way, where the paths meet, she standeth;
- -; . 3 Beside the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors, she crieth aloud:
; , - . 4 'Unto you, O men, I call, and my voice is to the sons of men.
; , . 5 O ye thoughtless, understand prudence, and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
, - ; , . 6 Hear, for I will speak excellent things, and the opening of my lips shall be right things.
-, ; . 7 For my mouth shall utter truth, and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
--: , . 8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness, there is nothing perverse or crooked in them.
, ; , . 9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
- -; , . 10 Receive my instruction, and not silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold.
- , ; -, -. 11 For wisdom is better than rubies, and all things desirable are not to be compared unto her.
-, ; . 12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of devices.
, -:
, .
13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; {N}
pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
-, ; , . 14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, power is mine.
, ; , . 15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
, ; , - . 16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
, () ; , . 17 I love them that love me, and those that seek me earnestly shall find me.
- ; , . 18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, enduring riches and righteousness.
, ; , . 19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my produce than choice silver.
- ; , . 20 I walk in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of justice;
; . 21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance, and that I may fill their treasuries.
--, : . 22 The LORD made me as the beginning of His way, the first of His works of old.
, -- -. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
- ; , -. 24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
; . 25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth;
- , ; , . 26 While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the beginning of the dust of the world.
, ; , - . 27 When He established the heavens, I was there; when He set a circle upon the face of the deep,
; , . 28 When He made firm the skies above, when the fountains of the deep showed their might,
, , , -; , . 29 When He gave to the sea His decree, that the waters should not transgress His commandment, when He appointed the foundations of the earth;
, : , ; -. 30 Then I was by Him, as a nursling; and I was daily all delight, playing always before Him,
, ; , - . 31 Playing in His habitable earth, and my delights are with the sons of men. {P}
, -; , . 32 Now therefore, ye children, hearken unto me; for happy are they that keep my ways.
; -. 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
, -: -, --, . 34 Happy is the man that hearkeneth to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
, () ; , . 35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
, ; -, . 36 But he that misseth me wrongeth his own soul; all they that hate me love death.'
