1 H4912 The proverbs H8010 of Solomon H1121 the son H1732 of David H4428 , king H3478 of Israel;
  2 H3045 To know [H8800]   H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction H995 ; to perceive [H8687]   H561 the words H998 of understanding;
  3 H3947 To receive [H8800]   H4148 the instruction H7919 of wisdom [H8687]   H6664 , justice H4941 , and judgment H4339 , and equity;
  4 H5414 To give [H8800]   H6195 subtilty H6612 to the simple H5288 , to the young man H1847 knowledge H4209 and discretion.
  5 H2450 A wise H8085 man will hear [H8799]   H3254 , and will increase [H8686]   H3948 learning H995 ; and a man of understanding [H8737]   H7069 shall attain [H8799]   H8458 unto wise counsels:
  6 H995 To understand [H8687]   H4912 a proverb H4426 , and the interpretation H1697 ; the words H2450 of the wise H2420 , and their dark sayings.
  7 H3374 The fear H3068 of the LORD H7225 is the beginning H1847 of knowledge H191 : but fools H936 despise [H8804]   H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction.
  8 H1121 My son H8085 , hear [H8798]   H4148 the instruction H1 of thy father H5203 , and forsake [H8799]   H8451 not the law H517 of thy mother:
  9 H3880 For they shall be an ornament H2580 of grace H7218 unto thy head H6060 , and chains H1621 about thy neck.
  10 H1121 My son H2400 , if sinners H6601 entice [H8762]   H14 thee, consent [H8799]   thou not.
  11 H559 If they say [H8799]   H3212 , Come [H8798]   H693 with us, let us lay wait [H8799]   H1818 for blood H6845 , let us lurk [H8799]   H5355 privily for the innocent H2600 without cause:
  12 H1104 Let us swallow them up [H8799]   H2416 alive H7585 as the grave H8549 ; and whole H3381 , as those that go down [H8802]   H953 into the pit:
  13 H4672 We shall find [H8799]   H3368 all precious H1952 substance H4390 , we shall fill [H8762]   H1004 our houses H7998 with spoil:
  14 H5307 Cast [H8686]   H1486 in thy lot H8432 among H259 us; let us all have one H3599 purse:
  15 H1121 My son H3212 , walk [H8799]   H1870 not thou in the way H4513 with them; refrain [H8798]   H7272 thy foot H5410 from their path:
  16 H7272 For their feet H7323 run [H8799]   H7451 to evil H4116 , and make haste [H8762]   H8210 to shed [H8800]   H1818 blood.
  17 H2600 Surely in vain H7568 the net H2219 is spread [H8794]   H5869 in the sight H1167 of any bird H3671  .
  18 H693 And they lay wait [H8799]   H1818 for their own blood H6845 ; they lurk privily [H8799]   H5315 for their own lives.
  19 H734 So are the ways H1214 of every one that is greedy [H8802]   H1215 of gain H3947 ; which taketh away [H8799]   H5315 the life H1167 of the owners thereof.
  20 H2454 Wisdom H7442 crieth [H8799]   H2351 without H5414 ; she uttereth [H8799]   H6963 her voice H7339 in the streets:
  21 H7121 She crieth [H8799]   H7218 in the chief place H1993 of concourse [H8802]   H6607 , in the openings H8179 of the gates H5892 : in the city H559 she uttereth [H8799]   H561 her words, saying,
  22 H6612 How long, ye simple ones H157 , will ye love [H8799]   H6612 simplicity H3887 ? and the scorners [H8801]   H2530 delight [H8804]   H3944 in their scorning H3684 , and fools H8130 hate [H8799]   H1847 knowledge?
  23 H7725 Turn [H8799]   H8433 you at my reproof H5042 : behold, I will pour out [H8686]   H7307 my spirit H3045 unto you, I will make known [H8686]   H1697 my words unto you.
  24 H7121 Because I have called [H8804]   H3985 , and ye refused [H8762]   H5186 ; I have stretched out [H8804]   H3027 my hand H7181 , and no man regarded [H8688]  ;
  25 H6544 But ye have set at nought [H8799]   H6098 all my counsel H14 , and would [H8804]   H8433 none of my reproof:
  26 H7832 I also will laugh [H8799]   H343 at your calamity H3932 ; I will mock [H8799]   H6343 when your fear H935 cometh [H8800]  ;
  27 H6343 When your fear H935 cometh [H8800]   H7722 as desolation [H8675]   H7584   H343 , and your destruction H857 cometh [H8799]   H5492 as a whirlwind H6869 ; when distress H6695 and anguish H935 cometh [H8800]   upon you.
  28 H7121 Then shall they call [H8799]   H6030 upon me, but I will not answer [H8799]   H7836 ; they shall seek me early [H8762]   H4672 , but they shall not find [H8799]   me:
  29 H8130 For that they hated [H8804]   H1847 knowledge H977 , and did not choose [H8804]   H3374 the fear H3068 of the LORD:
  30 H14 They would [H8804]   H6098 none of my counsel H5006 : they despised [H8804]   H8433 all my reproof.
  31 H398 Therefore shall they eat [H8799]   H6529 of the fruit H1870 of their own way H7646 , and be filled [H8799]   H4156 with their own devices.
  32 H4878 For the turning away H6612 of the simple H2026 shall slay [H8799]   H7962 them, and the prosperity H3684 of fools H6 shall destroy [H8762]   them.
  33 H8085 But whoso hearkeneth [H8802]   H7931 unto me shall dwell [H8799]   H983 safely H7599 , and shall be quiet [H8768]   H6343 from fear H7451 of evil.
