2 She standeth in the top of chigh places, by the way
In the places of the paths.
At the coming in at the doors.
And my voice is to the sons of man.
And, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
6 Hear; for I will speak of gexcellent things;
And the opening of my lips shall be hright things.
And wickedness is †an abomination to my lips.
9 They are all mplain to him that understandeth,
And right to them that find knowledge.
And knowledge rather than nchoice gold.
And qall the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
And find out knowledge of switty inventions.
xPride, and arrogancy, and the evil way,
And ythe froward mouth, do I hate.
I am understanding; bI have strength.
15 cBy me kings reign,
And dprinces decree justice.
And nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
17 eI love them that love me;
20 I ||lead in the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of judgment:
And I will fill their treasures.
Before his works qof old.
23 I was rset up from everlasting, from the beginning,
sOr ever the earth was.
When there were no fountains abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains vwere settled,
26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the ||fields,
27 When he yprepared the heavens, I was there:
When he strengthened the fountains of the tdeep:
That the waters should not pass his commandment:
And I was daily his fdelight,
gRejoicing always before him;
32 jNow therefore hearken unto me, O ye children:
For kblessed are they that keep my ways.
33 lHear instruction, and be wise,
And mrefuse it not.
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at the posts of my doors.
And shall †obtain favour of the Lord.
