Proverbs 8:1 Doeth not Wisedome crie? & Understanding put foorth her voice? Proverbs 8:2 Shee standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the pathes. Proverbs 8:3 She cryeth at the gates, at the entrie of the citie, at the comming in at the doores. Proverbs 8:4 Unto you, O men, I call, and my voice [is] to the sonnes of man. Proverbs 8:5 O yee simple, vnderstand wisedome: and yee fooles, be yee of an vnderstanding heart.
and evidency of wisdom.
Proverbs 8:6 Heare, for I will speake of excellent things: and the opening of my lippes [shalbe] right things. Proverbs 8:7 For my mouth shall speake truth, and wickednesse [is] an abomination to my lippes. Proverbs 8:8 All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousnes, [there is] nothing froward or peruerse in them. Proverbs 8:9 They [are] all plaine to him that vnderstandeth: and right to them that find knowledge.
Proverbs 8:10 Receiue my instruction, and not siluer: and knowledge rather then choise gold. Proverbs 8:11 For wisedome [is] better then rubies: and all the things that may be desired, are not to be compared to it.
Proverbs 8:12 I wisedome dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inuentions. Proverbs 8:13 The feare of the LORD [is] to hate euill: pride and arrogancie, and the euill way, and the froward mouth doe I hate. Proverbs 8:14 Counsell [is] mine, and sound wisedome: I [am] vnderstanding, I [haue] strength.
Proverbs 8:15 By me kings reigne, and princes decree iustice. Proverbs 8:16 By me Princes rule, and Nobles, [euen] all the Iudges of the earth. Proverbs 8:17 I loue them that loue me, and those that seeke me early, shall find me.
Proverbs 8:18 Riches and honour [are] with me, yea durable riches and righteousnesse. Proverbs 8:19 My fruite [is] better then gold, yea then fine gold, and my reuenue then choise siluer. Proverbs 8:20 I leade in the way of righteousnesse, in the midst of the pathes of iudgment. Proverbs 8:21 That I may cause those that loue me, to inherite substance: and I will fill their treasures.
and the eternity of wisdom.
Proverbs 8:22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. Proverbs 8:23 I was set vp from euerlasting, from the beginning, or euer the earth was. Proverbs 8:24 When [there were] no depthes, I was brought forth: when [there were] no fountaines abounding with water. Proverbs 8:25 Before the mountaines were setled: before the hilles, was I brought foorth: Proverbs 8:26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. Proverbs 8:27 When hee prepared the heauens, I was there: when he set a compasse vpon the face of the depth. Proverbs 8:28 When he established the cloudes aboue: when he strengthned the fountaines of the deepe. Proverbs 8:29 When he gaue to the sea his decree, that the waters should not passe his commandement: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Proverbs 8:30 Then I was by him, [as] one brought vp [with him]: and I was daily [his] delight, reioycing alwayes before him: Proverbs 8:31 Reioycing in the habitable part of his earth, and my delights [were] with the sonnes of men.
Wisdom is to be desired for the blessedness it bringeth.
Proverbs 8:32 Nowe therefore hearken vnto me, O yee children: for blessed [are they that] keepe my wayes. Proverbs 8:33 Heare instruction, and bee wise, and refuse it not. Proverbs 8:34 Blessed [is] the man that heareth me: watching daily at my gates, waiting at the postes of my doores. Proverbs 8:35 For whoso findeth mee, findeth life, and shall obtaine fauour of the LORD. Proverbs 8:36 But hee that sinneth against me, wrongeth his owne soule; all they that hate me, loue death.
