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.
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:
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.
