2 H5324 She stands H7218 in the top H4791 of high places, H1870 by the way H1004 in the places H5410 of the paths.
3 H7442 She cries H3027 at H8179 the gates, H6310 at the entry H7176 of the city, H3996 at the coming H6607 in at the doors.
5 H6612 O you simple, H995 understand H6195 wisdom: H3684 and, you fools, H995 be you of a understanding H3820 heart.
6 H8085 Hear; H1696 for I will speak H5057 of excellent things; H4669 and the opening H8193 of my lips H4339 shall be right things.
7 H2441 For my mouth H1897 shall speak H571 truth; H7562 and wickedness H8441 is a abomination H8193 to my lips.
8 H561 All the words H6310 of my mouth H6664 are in righteousness; H6617 there is nothing crooked H6141 or perverse in them.
9 H5228 They are all plain H995 to him that understands, H3477 and right H4672 to them that find H1847 knowledge.
10 H3947 Receive H4148 my instruction, H3701 and not silver; H1847 and knowledge H977 rather than choice H2742 gold.
11 H2451 For wisdom H2896 is better H6443 than rubies; H2656 and all the things that may be desired H7737 are not to be compared to it.
12 H2451 I wisdom H7931 live H6195 with prudence, H4672 and find out H1847 knowledge H4209 of witty inventions.
13 H3374 The fear H3068 of the Lord H8130 is to hate H7451 evil: H1344 pride, H1347 and arrogance, H7451 and the evil H1870 way, H8419 and the perverse H6310 mouth, H8130 do I hate.
18 H6239 Riches H3519 and honor H6276 are with me; Yes, durable H1952 riches H6666 and righteousness.
19 H6529 My fruit H2896 is better H2742 than gold, H6337 Yes, than fine gold; H8393 and my revenue H977 than choice H3701 silver.
20 H1980 I lead H734 in the way H6666 of righteousness, H8432 in the middle H5410 of the paths H4941 of judgment:
21 H157 That I may cause those that love H5157 me to inherit H3426 substance; H4390 and I will fill H214 their treasures.
22 H3068 The Lord H7069 possessed H7225 me in the beginning H1870 of his way, H6924 before H4659 his works of old.
23 H5258 I was set up H5769 from everlasting, H7218 from the beginning, H6924 or ever H776 the earth was.
24 H8415 When there were no depths, H2342 I was brought forth; H4599 when there were no fountains H3513 abounding H4325 with water.
25 H2022 Before the mountains H2883 were settled, H6440 before H1389 the hills H2342 was I brought forth:
26 H6213 While as yet he had not made H776 the earth, H2351 nor the fields, H7218 nor the highest part H6083 of the dust H8398 of the world.
27 H3559 When he prepared H8064 the heavens, H2710 I was there: when he set H2329 a circle H6440 upon the face H8415 of the depth:
28 H553 When he established H7834 the clouds H4605 above: H5810 when he strengthened H5869 the fountains H8415 of the deep:
29 H7760 When he gave H3220 to the sea H2706 his decree, H4325 that the waters H5674 should not pass H6310 his commandment: H2710 when he appointed H4144 the foundations H776 of the earth:
30 H681 Then I was by him, H525 as one brought up H3117 with him: and I was daily H8191 his delight, H7832 rejoicing H6256 always H6440 before him;
31 H7832 Rejoicing H8398 in the habitable part H776 of his earth; H8191 and my delights H1121 were with the sons H120 of men.
32 H8085 Now therefore listen H1121 unto me, O you sons: H835 for blessed H8104 are they that keep H1870 my ways.
34 H835 Blessed H120 is the man H8085 that hears H8245 me, watching H3117 daily H1817 at my gates, H8104 waiting H4201 at the posts H6607 of my doors.
35 H4672 For whoever finds H4672 me finds H2416 life, H6329 and shall obtain H7522 favor H3068 of the Lord.
