8 Does not awisdom cry out, And understanding lift up her voice?
2 She takes her stand on the top of the 1high hill,
Beside the way, where the paths meet.
At the entrance of the doors:
And my voice is to the sons of men.
5 O you 2simple ones, understand prudence,
And you fools, be of an understanding heart.
6 Listen, for I will speak of bexcellent things,
And from the opening of my lips will come right things;
Wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
Nothing crooked or perverse is in them.
And right to those who find knowledge.
And knowledge rather than choice gold;
11 cFor wisdom is better than rubies,
And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.
And find out knowledge and discretion.
13 dThe fear of the Lord is to hate evil;
ePride and arrogance and the evil way
And fthe perverse mouth I hate.
I am understanding, gI have strength.
15 hBy me kings reign,
And rulers decree justice.
All the judges of 3the earth.
17 iI love those who love me,
And jthose who seek me diligently will find me.
18 kRiches and honor are with me,
Enduring riches and righteousness.
And my revenue than choice silver.
20 I 4traverse the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice,
That I may fill their treasuries.
22 “The lLord possessed me at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old.
23 mI have been established from everlasting,
From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.
When there were no fountains abounding with water.
25 nBefore the mountains were settled,
Before the hills, I was brought forth;
26 While as yet He had not made the earth or the 5fields,
Or the 6primal dust of the world.
When He drew a circle on the face of the deep,
When He strengthened the fountains of the deep,
29 oWhen He assigned to the sea its limit,
So that the waters would not transgress His command,
When pHe marked out the foundations of the earth,
rAnd I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,
And smy delight was with the sons of men.
For tblessed are those who keep my ways.
And do not disdain it.
34 uBlessed is the man who listens to me,
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at the posts of my doors.
And vobtains favor from the Lord;
36 But he who sins against me wwrongs his own soul;
All those who hate me love death.”
9 Wisdom has abuilt her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars;
2 bShe has slaughtered her meat,
cShe has mixed her wine,
She has also 1furnished her table.
She cries out from the highest places of the city,
4 “Whoever dis simple, let him turn in here!”
As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
5 “Come, eeat of my bread
And drink of the wine I have mixed.
And go in the way of understanding.

8 fDo not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you;
gRebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
Teach a just man, hand he will increase in learning.
10 “The ifear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 jFor by me your days will be multiplied,
And years of life will be added to you.
12 kIf you are wise, you are wise for yourself,
And if you scoff, you will bear it alone.”
She is simple, and knows nothing.
On a seat mby the highest places of the city,
Who go straight on their way:
And as for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
17 “Stolen owater is sweet,
And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18 But he does not know that pthe dead are there,
That her guests are in the depths of 4hell.
