Proverbs 8

  1 H2451 Doth not wisdom H7121 [H8799] call? H8394 and understanding H5414 [H8799] put forth H6963 her voice?
  2 H5324 [H8738] She standeth H7218 on the top H4791 of high places, H1870 by the way H1004 in the places H5410 of the paths.
  3 H7442 [H8799] She shouteth H3027 at H8179 the gates, H6310 at the entry H7176 of the city, H3996 at the entrance H6607 of the doors.
  4 H376 To you, O men, H7121 [H8799] I call; H6963 and my voice H1121 is to the sons H120 of man.
  5 H6612 O ye simple, H995 [H8685] understand H6195 discretion: H3684 and, ye fools, H995 [H8685] be ye of an understanding H3820 heart.
  6 H8085 [H8798] Hear; H1696 [H8762] for I will speak H5057 of excellent things; H4669 and the opening H8193 of my lips H4339 shall be straightness.
  7 H2441 For the roof of my mouth H1897 [H8799] shall speak H571 truth; H7562 and wickedness H8441 is an abomination H8193 to my lips.
  8 H561 All the words H6310 of my mouth H6664 are in righteousness; H6617 [H8737] there is nothing crooked H6141 or perverse in them.
  9 H5228 They are all plain H995 [H8688] to him that understandeth, H3477 and right H4672 [H8802] to them that find H1847 knowledge.
  10 H3947 [H8798] Receive H4148 my instruction, H3701 and not silver; H1847 and knowledge H977 [H8737] 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 [H8799] are not to be compared to it.
  12 H2451 I wisdom H7931 [H8804] dwell H6195 with discretion, H4672 [H8799] and find out H1847 knowledge H4209 and sagacity.
  13 H3374 The fear H3068 of the LORD H8130 [H8800] is to hate H7451 evil: H1344 pride, H1347 and arrogance, H7451 and the evil H1870 way, H8419 and the perverse H6310 mouth, H8130 [H8804] do I hate.
  14 H6098 Counsel H8454 is mine, and sound wisdom: H998 I am understanding; H1369 I have strength.
  15 H4428 By me kings H4427 [H8799] reign, H7336 [H8802] and princes H2710 [H8779] decree H6664 justice.
  16 H8269 By me princes H8323 [H8799] rule, H5081 and nobles, H8199 [H8802] even all the judges H776 of the earth.
  17 H157 [H8799] I love H157 [H8802] them that love H7836 [H8764] me; and those that seek me early H4672 [H8799] shall find me.
  18 H6239 Riches H3519 and glory H6276 are with me; yea, durable H1952 riches H6666 and righteousness.
  19 H6529 My fruit H2896 is better H2742 than gold, H6337 yea, than fine gold; H8393 and my revenue H977 [H8737] than choice H3701 silver.
  20 H1980 [H8762] I lead H734 in the way H6666 of righteousness, H8432 in the midst H5410 of the paths H4941 of judgment:
  21 H157 [H8802] That I may cause those that love H5157 [H8687] me to inherit H3426 substance; H4390 [H8762] and I will fill H214 their treasuries.
  22 H3068 The LORD H7069 [H8804] possessed H7225 me in the beginning H1870 of his way, H6924 before H4659 his works of old.
  23 H5258 [H8738] 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 [H8797] I was brought forth; H4599 when there were no fountains H3513 [H8737] abounding H4325 with water.
  25 H2022 Before the mountains H2883 [H8717] were settled, H6440 at the face of H1389 the hills H2342 [H8797] was I brought forth:
  26 H6213 [H8804] 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 [H8687] When he prepared H8064 the heavens, H2710 [H8800] I was there: when he set H2329 a circle H6440 upon the face H8415 of the depth:
  28 H553 [H8763] When he established H7834 the clouds H4605 above: H5810 [H8800] when he strengthened H5869 the fountains H8415 of the deep:
  29 H7760 [H8800] When he gave H3220 to the sea H2706 his statute, H4325 that the waters H5674 [H8799] should not pass H6310 his mouth: H2710 [H8800] when he appointed H4144 the foundations H776 of the earth:
  30 H9001 Then H1961 I was H681 by H9023 him, H525 as one brought up with him: H9001 and H1961 I was H3117 daily H8191 his delight, H7832 [H8764] playing H3605 at all H6256 times H6440 before the face H9023 of him;
  31 H7832 [H8764] Playing H8398 in the habitable part H776 of his earth; H8191 and my delights H1121 were with the sons H120 of men.
  32 H8085 [H8798] Now therefore hearken H1121 to me, O ye sons: H835 for happy H8104 [H8799] are they that keep H1870 my ways.
  33 H8085 [H8798] Hear H4148 instruction, H2449 [H8798] and be wise, H6544 [H8799] and refuse it not.
  34 H835 Happy H120 is the man H8085 [H8802] that heareth H8245 [H8800] me, watching H3117 daily H1817 at my gates, H8104 [H8800] waiting H4201 at the posts H6607 of my doors.
  35 H4672 [H8802] For whoever findeth H4672 H4672 [H8804] me findeth H2416 life, H6329 [H8686] and shall obtain H7522 delight H3068 from the LORD.
  36 H9001 But H2398 [H8802] he that sinneth H9030 against me H2554 [H8802] violateth H9023 his own H5315 breath: H3605 all they H8130 [H8764] that hate H9030 me H157 [H8804] love H4194 death.
