Proverbs 8:1  
Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?

Proverbs 8:2  
She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.

Proverbs 8:3  
She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.

Proverbs 8:4  
Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.

Proverbs 8:5  
O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.

Proverbs 8:6  
Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.

Proverbs 8:7  
For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.

Proverbs 8:8  
All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

Proverbs 8:9  
They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

Proverbs 8:10  
Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.

Proverbs 8:11  
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

Proverbs 8:12  
I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

Proverbs 8:13  
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

Proverbs 8:15  
By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.

By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.

Proverbs 8:17  
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

Proverbs 8:18  
Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.

Proverbs 8:19  
My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.

Proverbs 8:20  
I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:

Proverbs 8:21  
That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

Proverbs 8:22  
The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

Proverbs 8:23  
I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

Proverbs 8:24  
When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

Proverbs 8:25  
Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

Proverbs 8:26  
While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

Proverbs 8:27  
When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

Proverbs 8:28  
When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

Proverbs 8:29  
When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

Proverbs 8:30  
Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

Proverbs 8:31  
Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

Proverbs 8:32  
Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

Proverbs 8:33  
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

Proverbs 8:34  
Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

Proverbs 8:35  
For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

Proverbs 8:36  
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
