Proverbs 8

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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