Proverbs 8

Proverbs 8:1   Doth not wisdom cry, And understanding put forth her voice?
Proverbs 8:2   On the top of high places by the way, Where the paths meet, she standeth;
Proverbs 8:3   Beside the gates, at the entry of the city, At the coming in at the doors, she crieth aloud:
Proverbs 8:4   Unto you, O men, I call; And my voice is to the sons of men.
Proverbs 8:5   O ye simple, understand prudence; And, ye fools, be of an understanding heart.
Proverbs 8:6   Hear, for I will speak excellent things; And the opening of my lips shall be right things.
Proverbs 8:7   For my mouth shall utter truth; And wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
Proverbs 8:8   All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; There is nothing crooked or perverse in them.
Proverbs 8:9   They are all plain to him that understandeth, And right to them that find knowledge.
Proverbs 8:10   Receive my instruction, and not silver; And knowledge rather than choice gold.
Proverbs 8:11   For wisdom is better than rubies; And all the things that may be desired are not to be compared unto it.
Proverbs 8:12   I wisdom have made prudence my dwelling, And find out knowledge and discretion.
Proverbs 8:13   The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil: Pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, And the perverse mouth, do I hate.
Proverbs 8:14   Counsel is mine, and sound knowledge: I am understanding; I have might.
Proverbs 8:15   By me kings reign, And princes decree justice.
Proverbs 8:16   By me princes rule, And nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
Proverbs 8:17   I love them that love me; And those that seek me diligently shall find me.
Proverbs 8:18   Riches and honor are with me; Yea, durable wealth and righteousness.
Proverbs 8:19   My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; And my revenue than choice silver.
Proverbs 8:20   I walk in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice;
Proverbs 8:21   That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance, And that I may fill their treasuries.
Proverbs 8:22   Jehovah possessed me in the beginning of his way, Before his works of old.
Proverbs 8:23   I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, Before the earth was.
Proverbs 8:24   When there were no depths, I was brought forth, When there were no fountains abounding with water.
Proverbs 8:25   Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills was I brought forth;
Proverbs 8:26   While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, Nor the beginning of the dust of the world.
Proverbs 8:27   When he established the heavens, I was there: When he set a circle upon the face of the deep,
Proverbs 8:28   When he made firm the skies above, When the fountains of the deep became strong,
Proverbs 8:29   When he gave to the sea its bound, That the waters should not transgress his commandment, When he marked out the foundations of the earth;
Proverbs 8:30   Then I was by him, as a master workman; And I was daily his delight, Rejoicing always before him,
Proverbs 8:31   Rejoicing in his habitable earth; And my delight was with the sons of men.
Proverbs 8:32   Now therefore, my sons, hearken unto me; For blessed are they that keep my ways.
Proverbs 8:33   Hear instruction, and be wise, And refuse it not.
Proverbs 8:34   Blessed is the man that heareth me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors.
Proverbs 8:35   For whoso findeth me findeth life, And shall obtain favor of Jehovah.
Proverbs 8:36   But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: All they that hate me love death.
