2 H3045 [H8800] To know H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction; H995 [H8687] to perceive H561 the words H998 of understanding;
3 H3947 [H8800] To receive H4148 the instruction H7919 [H8687] of wisdom, H6664 justice, H4941 and judgment, H4339 and equity;
4 H5414 [H8800] To give H6195 prudence H6612 to the simple, H5288 to the young man H1847 knowledge H4209 and discretion.
5 H2450 A wise H8085 [H8799] man will hear, H3254 [H8686] and will increase H3948 learning; H995 [H8737] and a man of understanding H7069 [H8799] shall attain H8458 to wise counsels:
6 H995 [H8687] To understand 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 [H8804] despise H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction.
8 H1121 My son, H8085 [H8798] hear H4148 the instruction H1 of thy father, H5203 [H8799] and forsake H8451 not the law H517 of thy mother:
9 H3880 For they shall be an ornament H2580 of grace H7218 to thy head, H6060 and chains H1621 about thy neck.
11 H559 [H8799] If they say, H3212 [H8798] Come H693 [H8799] with us, let us lay wait H1818 for blood, H6845 [H8799] let us lurk H5355 secretly for the innocent H2600 without cause:
12 H1104 [H8799] Let us swallow them up H2416 alive H7585 as the grave; H8549 and whole, H3381 [H8802] as those that go down H953 into the pit:
13 H4672 [H8799] We shall find H3368 all precious H1952 substance, H4390 [H8762] we shall fill H1004 our houses H7998 with spoil:
15 H1121 My son, H3212 [H8799] walk H1870 not thou in the way H4513 [H8798] with them; keep H7272 thy foot H5410 from their path:
16 H7272 For their feet H7323 [H8799] run H7451 to evil, H4116 [H8762] and make haste H8210 [H8800] to shed H1818 blood.
17 H2600 Surely in vain H7568 the net H2219 [H8794] is spread H5869 in the sight H1167 H3671 of any bird.
18 H693 [H8799] And they lay wait H1818 for their own blood; H6845 [H8799] they lurk secretly H5315 for their own lives.
19 H734 So are the ways H1214 [H8802] of every one that is greedy H1215 of gain; H3947 [H8799] who taketh away H5315 the life H1167 of its owners.
20 H2454 Wisdom H7442 [H8799] crieth H2351 outside; H5414 [H8799] she uttereth H6963 her voice H7339 in the streets:
21 H7121 [H8799] She crieth H7218 in the chief place H1993 [H8802] of concourse, H6607 in the openings H8179 of the gates: H5892 in the city H559 [H8799] she uttereth H561 her words, saying,
22 H6612 How long, ye simple ones, H157 [H8799] will ye love H6612 simplicity? H3887 [H8801] and the scorners H2530 [H8804] delight H3944 in their scorning, H3684 and fools H8130 [H8799] hate H1847 knowledge?
23 H7725 [H8799] Turn H8433 ye at my reproof: H5042 [H8686] behold, I will pour out H7307 my spirit H3045 [H8686] to you, I will make known H1697 to you my words.
24 H7121 [H8804] Because I have called, H3985 [H8762] and ye refused; H5186 [H8804] I have stretched out H3027 my hand, H7181 [H8688] and no man regarded;
25 H6544 [H8799] But ye have set at nought H6098 all my counsel, H14 [H8804] and rejected H8433 my reproof:
26 H7832 [H8799] I also will laugh H343 at your calamity; H3932 [H8799] I will mock H6343 when your fear H935 [H8800] cometh;
27 H6343 When your fear H935 [H8800] cometh H7722 H7584 [H8675] as desolation, H343 and your destruction H857 [H8799] cometh H5492 as a whirlwind; H6869 when distress H6695 and anguish H935 [H8800] cometh upon you.
28 H7121 [H8799] Then shall they call H6030 [H8799] upon me, but I will not answer; H7836 [H8762] they shall seek me early, H4672 [H8799] but they shall not find me:
29 H8130 [H8804] Because they hated H1847 knowledge, H977 [H8804] and did not choose H3374 the fear H3068 of the LORD:
31 H398 [H8799] Therefore shall they eat H6529 of the fruit H1870 of their own way, H7646 [H8799] and be filled H4156 with their own devices.
32 H4878 For the turning away H6612 of the simple H2026 [H8799] shall slay H7962 them, and the prosperity H3684 of fools H6 [H8762] shall destroy them.
