Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:1 - Proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:2 - For knowing wisdom and instruction, For understanding sayings of intelligence,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:3 - For receiving the instruction of wisdom, Righteousness, judgment, and uprightness,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:4 - For giving to simple ones -- prudence, To a youth -- knowledge and discretion.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:5 - (The wise doth hear and increaseth learning, And the intelligent doth obtain counsels.)

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:6 - For understanding a proverb and its sweetness, Words of the wise and their acute sayings.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:7 - Fear of Jehovah is a beginning of knowledge, Wisdom and instruction fools have despised!

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:8 - Hear, my son, the instruction of thy father, And leave not the law of thy mother,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:9 - For a graceful wreath are they to thy head, And chains to thy neck.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:10 - My son, if sinners entice thee be not willing.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:11 - If they say, 'Come with us, we lay wait for blood, We watch secretly for the innocent without cause,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:12 - We swallow them as Sheol -- alive, And whole -- as those going down to the pit,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:13 - Every precious substance we find, We fill our houses with spoil,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:14 - Thy lot thou dost cast among us, One purse is -- to all of us.'

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:15 - My son! go not in the way with them, Withhold thy foot from their path,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:16 - For their feet to evil do run, And they haste to shed blood.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:17 - Surely in vain is the net spread out before the eyes of any bird.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:18 - And they for their own blood lay wait, They watch secretly for their own lives.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:19 - So are the paths of every gainer of dishonest gain, The life of its owners it taketh.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:20 - Wisdom in an out-place crieth aloud, In broad places she giveth forth her voice,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:21 - At the head of the multitudes she calleth, In the openings of the gates, In the city her sayings she saith:

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:22 - 'Till when, ye simple, do ye love simplicity? And have scorners their scorning desired? And do fools hate knowledge?

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:23 - Turn back at my reproof, lo, I pour forth to you my spirit, I make known my words with you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:24 - Because I have called, and ye refuse, I stretched out my hand, and none is attending,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:25 - And ye slight all my counsel, And my reproof ye have not desired.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:26 - I also in your calamity do laugh, I deride when your fear cometh,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:27 - When your fear cometh as destruction, And your calamity as a hurricane doth come, When on you come adversity and distress.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:28 - Then they call me, and I do not answer, They seek me earnestly, and find me not.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:29 - Because that they have hated knowledge, And the fear of Jehovah have not chosen.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:30 - They have not consented to my counsel, They have despised all my reproof,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:31 - And they eat of the fruit of their way, And from their own counsels they are filled.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:32 - For the turning of the simple slayeth them, And the security of the foolish destroyeth them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 1:33 - And whoso is hearkening to me dwelleth confidently, And is quiet from fear of evil!'
