2 H3045 To know H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction; H561 to perceive the words H998 of understanding;
3 H3947 To receive H4148 the instruction H7919 of wisdom, H6664 justice, H4941 and judgment, H4339 and equity;
4 H5414 To give H6195 subtlety H6612 to the simple, H5288 to the young H1847 man knowledge H4209 and discretion.
5 H2450 A wise H8085 man will hear, H3254 and will increase H3948 learning; H995 and a man of understanding H7069 shall attain H8458 to wise counsels:
6 H995 To understand H4912 a proverb, H4426 and the interpretation; H1697 the words H2450 of the wise, H2420 and their dark H2420 sayings.
7 H3374 The fear H3068 of the LORD H7225 is the beginning H1847 of knowledge: H191 but fools H936 despise H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction.
8 H1121 My son, H8085 hear H4148 the instruction H1 of your father, H5203 and forsake H8451 not the law H517 of your mother:
9 H3880 For they shall be an ornament H2580 of grace H7218 to your head, H6060 and chains H1621 about your neck.
11 H518 If H559 they say, H3212 Come H693 with us, let us lay wait H1818 for blood, H6845 let us lurk H5355 privately for the innocent H2600 without H2600 cause:
12 H1104 Let us swallow H2416 them up alive H7585 as the grave; H8549 and whole, H3381 as those that go H3381 down H953 into the pit:
13 H4672 We shall find H3605 all H3368 precious H1952 substance, H4390 we shall fill H1004 our houses H7998 with spoil:
15 H1121 My son, H3212 walk H1870 not you in the way H4513 with them; refrain H7272 your foot H5410 from their path:
17 H3588 Surely H2600 in vain H7568 the net H2219 is spread H5869 in the sight H3605 of any H1167 bird. H3671
18 H693 And they lay wait H1818 for their own blood; H6845 they lurk H5315 privately for their own lives.
19 H3651 So H734 are the ways H3605 of every H1214 one that is greedy H1214 of gain; H3947 which takes H5315 away the life H1167 of the owners thereof.
21 H7121 She cries H7218 in the chief H1993 place of concourse, H6607 in the openings H8179 of the gates: H5892 in the city H559 she utters H561 her words, saying,
22 H5704 How H5704 long, H6612 you simple H157 ones, will you love H6612 simplicity? H3887 and the scorners H2531 delight H3944 in their scorning, H3684 and fools H8130 hate H1847 knowledge?
23 H7725 Turn H8433 you at my reproof: H2009 behold, H5042 I will pour H7307 out my spirit H3045 to you, I will make known H1697 my words to you.
24 H3282 Because H7121 I have called, H3985 and you refused; H5186 I have stretched H3027 out my hand, H369 and no H7181 man regarded;
25 H6544 But you have set at H6544 nothing H3605 all H6098 my counsel, H14 and would H3808 none H8433 of my reproof:
26 H1571 I also H7832 will laugh H343 at your calamity; H3932 I will mock H6343 when your fear H935 comes;
27 H6343 When your fear H935 comes H7584 as desolation, H343 and your destruction H857 comes H5492 as a whirlwind; H6869 when distress H6695 and anguish H935 comes on you.
28 H227 Then H7121 shall they call H6030 on me, but I will not answer; H7836 they shall seek H7836 me early, H4672 but they shall not find me:
29 H8130 For that they hated H1847 knowledge, H977 and did not choose H3374 the fear H3068 of the LORD:
31 H398 Therefore shall they eat H6529 of the fruit H1870 of their own way, H7646 and be filled H4156 with their own devices.
32 H4878 For the turning H6612 away of the simple H2026 shall slay H7962 them, and the prosperity H3684 of fools H6 shall destroy them.
