King James Bible : Proverbs : Chapter 8 King James Bible : Proverbs : Chapter 8

8:1
Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
8:2
She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
8:3
She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.
8:4
Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.
8:5
O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
8:6
Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.
8:7
For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
8:8
All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
8:9
They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
8:10
Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
8:11
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
8:12
I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
8:13
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
8:14
Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
8:15
By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
8:16
By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
8:17
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
8:18
Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
8:19
My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
8:20
I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgement:
8:21
That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
8:22
The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
8:23
I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
8:24
When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
8:25
Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
8:26
While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
8:27
When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
8:28
When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
8:29
When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
8:30
Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
8:31
Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
8:32
Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
8:33
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
8:34
Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
8:35
For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
8:36
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
