8:1 Doesn`t wisdom cry out? Doesn`t understanding raise her voice?
8:5 You simple, understand prudence. You fools, be of an understanding heart.
8:6 Hear, for I will speak excellent things. The opening of my lips is for right things.
8:7 For my mouth speaks truth. Wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
8:8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness. There is nothing crooked or perverse in them.
8:9 They are all plain to him who understands, Right to those who find knowledge.
8:10 Receive my instruction rather than silver; Knowledge rather than choice gold.
8:11 For wisdom is better than rubies. All the things that may be desired can`t be compared to it.
8:12 I, wisdom, have made prudence my dwelling. Find out knowledge and discretion.
8:13 The fear of Yahweh is to hate evil. I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the perverse mouth.
8:15 By me kings reign, And princes decree justice.
8:16 By me princes rule; Nobles, and all the righteous rulers of the earth.
8:17 I love those who love me. Those who seek me diligently will find me.
8:18 With me are riches, honor, Enduring wealth, and prosperity.
8:20 I walk in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice;
8:21 That I may give wealth to those who love me. I fill their treasuries.
8:23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, Before the earth existed.
8:25 Before the mountains were settled in place, Before the hills, I was brought forth;
8:26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, Nor the beginning of the dust of the world.
8:27 When he established the heavens, I was there; When he set a circle on the surface of the deep,
8:29 When he gave to the sea its boundary, That the waters should not violate his commandment, When he marked out the foundations of the earth;
8:32 Now therefore, my sons, listen to me, For blessed are those who keep my ways.
8:33 Hear instruction, and be wise, Don`t refuse it.
8:35 For whoever finds me, finds life, And will obtain favor from Yahweh.
8:36 But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.
