Pro 8:1 Does not wisdom call? And does not understanding speak?
Pro 8:2 She stands in the top of high places, by the wayside, in the houses of the paths,
Pro 8:3 beside the gates; at the mouth of the city, at the doors, she cries.
Pro 8:4 I call to you, O men, and my voice is to the sons of men.
Pro 8:5 Understand wisdom, simple ones; and fools, be of an understanding heart.
Pro 8:6 Hear, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening of my lips shall be right things.
Pro 8:7 For my mouth shall speak of truth, and wickedness is hateful to my lips.
Pro 8:8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; nothing crooked or perverse is in them;
Pro 8:9 they are all plain to the understanding one; and right to those who find knowledge.
Pro 8:10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge, rather than choice gold.
Pro 8:11 For wisdom is better than jewels, and all delights cannot be compared to it.
Pro 8:12 I, wisdom, dwell with sense, and I find knowledge of discretions.
Pro 8:13 The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil; I hate pride and loftiness, and the evil way, and the perverse mouth.
Pro 8:14 Counsel and sound wisdom are mine; I am understanding; I have strength.
Pro 8:15 By me kings reign, and leaders decree righteousness.
Pro 8:16 Rulers and nobles rule by me, and all the judges of the earth.
Pro 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me early find me.
Pro 8:18 Riches and honor are with me; enduring wealth and righteousness.
Pro 8:19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my increase is better than the best silver.
Pro 8:20 I walk in the path of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of justice;
Pro 8:21 to cause those who love me to inherit wealth, and I will fill up their treasuries.
Pro 8:22 Jehovah possessed me in the beginning of His way, from then, before His works.
Pro 8:23 I was set up from everlasting, from that which was before the earth.
Pro 8:24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no springs heavy with water.
Pro 8:25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I was brought forth;
Pro 8:26 before He had made the earth and the fields, or the highest part of the dust of the world.
Pro 8:27 When He prepared the heavens, I was there; when He set a circle on the face of the deep,
Pro 8:28 when He formed the clouds above, when He made the strong fountains of the deep,
Pro 8:29 when He gave to the sea its limit, that the waters should not pass beyond His command; when He decreed the foundations of the earth,
Pro 8:30 then I was at His side, like a master workman; and I was His delights day by day, rejoicing before Him at every time;
Pro 8:31 rejoicing in the world, His earth; and my delight was with the sons of men.
Pro 8:32 And now listen to me, O sons, for blessed are those who keep my ways.
Pro 8:33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and do not refuse it.
Pro 8:34 Blessed is the man listening to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
Pro 8:35 For whoever finds me finds life, and he shall obtain favor from Jehovah.
Pro 8:36 But he who sins against me does violence to his own soul; all who hate me love death.
