018:028:001
Surely there is a vein for the silver,
and a place for gold where they fine it.


018:028:002
Iron is taken out of the earth,
and brass is molten out of the stone.


018:028:003
He setteth an end to darkness,
and searcheth out all perfection:
the stones of darkness,
and the shadow of death.


018:028:004
The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant;
even the waters forgotten of the foot:
they are dried up,
they are gone away from men.


018:028:005
As for the earth,
out of it cometh bread:
and under it is turned up as it were fire.


018:028:006
The stones of it are the place of sapphires:
and it hath dust of gold.


018:028:007
There is a path which no fowl knoweth,
and which the vulture's eye hath not seen:


018:028:008
The lion's whelps have not trodden it,
nor the fierce lion passed by it.


018:028:009
He putteth forth his hand upon the rock;
he overturneth the mountains by the roots.


018:028:010
He cutteth out rivers among the rocks;
and his eye seeth every precious thing.


018:028:011
He bindeth the floods from overflowing;
and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.


018:028:012
But where shall wisdom be found?
and where is the place of understanding?


018:028:013
Man knoweth not the price thereof;
neither is it found in the land of the living.


018:028:014
The depth saith,
It is not in me:
and the sea saith,
It is not with me.


018:028:015
It cannot be gotten for gold,
neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.


018:028:016
It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir,
with the precious onyx,
or the sapphire.


018:028:017
The gold and the crystal cannot equal it:
and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.


018:028:018
No mention shall be made of coral,
or of pearls:
for the price of wisdom is above rubies.


018:028:019
The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it,
neither shall it be valued with pure gold.


018:028:020
Whence then cometh wisdom?
and where is the place of understanding?


018:028:021
Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living,
and kept close from the fowls of the air.


018:028:022
Destruction and death say,
We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.


018:028:023
God understandeth the way thereof,
and he knoweth the place thereof.


018:028:024
For he looketh to the ends of the earth,
and seeth under the whole heaven;


018:028:025
To make the weight for the winds;
and he weigheth the waters by measure.


018:028:026
When he made a decree for the rain,
and a way for the lightning of the thunder:


018:028:027
Then did he see it,
and declare it;
he prepared it,
yea,
and searched it out.


018:028:028
And unto man he said,
Behold,
the fear of the LORD,
that is wisdom;
and to depart from evil is understanding.
