Proverbs 8 (KJV)

1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?




5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.
7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination (disgrace) to my lips.
8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward (difficult) or perverse (awkward)  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 the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.


13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward ((of a person) difficult to deal with; contrary.) mouth, do I hate.


14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

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


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 highest part of the dust of the world.
27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.



34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.
36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
