020:008:001
Doth not wisdom cry?
and understanding put forth her voice?


020:008:002
She standeth in the top of high places,
by the way in the places of the paths.


020:008:003
She crieth at the gates,
at the entry of the city,
at the coming in at the doors.


020:008:004
Unto you,
O men,
I call;
and my voice is to the sons of man.


020:008:005
O ye simple,
understand wisdom:
and,
ye fools,
be ye of an understanding heart.


020:008:006
Hear;
for I will speak of excellent things;
and the opening of my lips shall be right things.


020:008:007
For my mouth shall speak truth;
and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.


020:008:008
All the words of my mouth are in righteousness;
there is nothing froward or perverse in them.


020:008:009
They are all plain to him that understandeth,
and right to them that find knowledge.


020:008:010
Receive my instruction,
and not silver;
and knowledge rather than choice gold.


020:008:011
For wisdom is better than rubies;
and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.


020:008:012
I wisdom dwell with prudence,
and find out knowledge of witty inventions.


020:008:013
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil:
pride,
and arrogancy,
and the evil way,
and the froward mouth,
do I hate.


020:008:014
Counsel is mine,
and sound wisdom:
I am understanding;
I have strength.


020:008:015
By me kings reign,
and princes decree justice.


020:008:016
By me princes rule,
and nobles,
even all the judges of the earth.


020:008:017
I love them that love me;
and those that seek me early shall find me.


020:008:018
Riches and honour are with me;
yea,
durable riches and righteousness.


020:008:019
My fruit is better than gold,
yea,
than fine gold;
and my revenue than choice silver.


020:008:020
I lead in the way of righteousness,
in the midst of the paths of judgment:


020:008:021
That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance;
and I will fill their treasures.


020:008:022
The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way,
before his works of old.


020:008:023
I was set up from everlasting,
from the beginning,
or ever the earth was.


020:008:024
When there were no depths,
I was brought forth;
when there were no fountains abounding with water.


020:008:025
Before the mountains were settled,
before the hills was I brought forth:


020:008:026
While as yet he had not made the earth,
nor the fields,
nor the highest part of the dust of the world.


020:008:027
When he prepared the heavens,
I was there:
when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:


020:008:028
When he established the clouds above:
when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:


020:008:029
When he gave to the sea his decree,
that the waters should not pass his commandment:
when he appointed the foundations of the earth:


020:008:030
Then I was by him,
as one brought up with him:
and I was daily his delight,
rejoicing always before him;


020:008:031
Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth;
and my delights were with the sons of men.


020:008:032
Now therefore hearken unto me,
O ye children:
for blessed are they that keep my ways.


020:008:033
Hear instruction,
and be wise,
and refuse it not.


020:008:034
Blessed is the man that heareth me,
watching daily at my gates,
waiting at the posts of my doors.


020:008:035
For whoso findeth me findeth life,
and shall obtain favour of the LORD.


020:008:036
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul:
all they that hate me love death.
