Proverbs Chapter 8   
   King James Version

     1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. [jwc]   3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors. [gsn] [jwc]   4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice [is] to the sons of man. [jwc]   5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. [jfb] [jwc]   6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [shall be] right things. [jfb]   7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips. [jfb]   8 All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing froward or perverse in them. [jfb]   9 They [are] all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. [jfb] [jwc]   11 For wisdom [is] better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. [jfb]   12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   13 The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. [gsn] [jfb]   14 Counsel [is] mine, and sound wisdom: I [am] understanding; I have strength. [jfb] [jwc]   15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   16 By me princes rule, and nobles, [even] all the judges of the earth.   17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   18 Riches and honour [are] with me; [yea], durable riches and righteousness. [gsn] [jfb]   19 My fruit [is] better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. [jfb]   20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: [gsn] [jfb]   21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. [jwc]   22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   24 When [there were] no depths, I was brought forth; when [there were] no fountains abounding with water. [jfb] [jwc]   25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: [jfb]   26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. [jfb] [jwc]   27 When he prepared the heavens, I [was] there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: [jfb] [jwc]   28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: [jfb] [jwc]   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: [jfb]   30 Then I was by him, [as] one brought up [with him]: and I was daily [his] delight, rejoicing always before him; [gsn] [jfb]   31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights [were] with the sons of men. [gsn] [jwc]   32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed [are they that] keep my ways. [jfb]   33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.   34 Blessed [is] the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. [jfb] [jwc]   35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. [jfb]   36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. [jfb]
