1:2 To know [H3045] wisdom [H2451] and instruction [H4148] ; to perceive [H995] the words [H561] of understanding [H998] ;
1:3 To receive [H3947] the instruction [H4148] of wisdom [H7919] , justice [H6664] , and judgment [H4941] , and equity [H4339] ;(equity: Heb. equities)
1:4 To give [H5414] subtilty [H6195] to the simple [H6612] , to the young man [H5288] knowledge [H1847] and discretion [H4209] .(discretion: or, advisement)
1:5 A wise [H2450] [man] will hear [H8085] , and will increase [H3254] learning [H3948] ; and a man of understanding [H995] shall attain [H7069] unto wise counsels [H8458] :
1:6 To understand [H995] a proverb [H4912] , and the interpretation [H4426] ; the words [H1697] of the wise [H2450] , and their dark sayings [H2420] .(the interpretation: or, an eloquent speech)
1:7 The fear [H3374] of the LORD [H3068] [is] the beginning [H7225] of knowledge [H1847] : [but] fools [H191] despise [H936] wisdom [H2451] and instruction [H4148] .(the beginning: or, the principal part)
1:8 My son [H1121] , hear [H8085] the instruction [H4148] of thy father [H1] , and forsake [H5203] not the law [H8451] of thy mother [H517] :
1:9 For they [shall be] an ornament [H3880] of grace [H2580] unto thy head [H7218] , and chains [H6060] about thy neck [H1621] .(an: Heb. an adding)
1:10 My son [H1121] , if sinners [H2400] entice [H6601] thee, consent [H14] thou not.
1:11 If they say [H559] , Come [H3212] with us, let us lay wait [H693] for blood [H1818] , let us lurk [H6845] privily for the innocent [H5355] without cause [heb2600] :
1:12 Let us swallow them up [H1104] alive [H2416] as the grave [H7585] ; and whole [H8549] , as those that go down [H3381] into the pit [H953] :
1:13 We shall find [H4672] all precious [H3368] substance [H1952] , we shall fill [H4390] our houses [H1004] with spoil [H7998] :
1:14 Cast [H5307] in thy lot [H1486] among [H8432] us; let us all have one [H259] purse [H3599] :
1:15 My son [H1121] , walk [H3212] not thou in the way [H1870] with them; refrain [H4513] thy foot [H7272] from their path [H5410] :
1:16 For their feet [H7272] run [H7323] to evil [H7451] , and make haste [H4116] to shed [H8210] blood [H1818] .
1:17 Surely in vain [H2600] the net [H7568] is spread [H2219] in the sight [H5869] of any bird [H1167] [H3671] .(in the: Heb. in the eyes of every thing that hath a wing)
1:18 And they lay wait [H693] for their [own] blood [H1818] ; they lurk privily [H6845] for their [own] lives [H5315] .
1:19 So [are] the ways [H734] of every one that is greedy [H1214] of gain [H1215] ; [which] taketh away [H3947] the life [H5315] of the owners [H1167] thereof.
1:20 Wisdom [H2454] crieth [H7442] without [H2351] ; she uttereth [H5414] her voice [H6963] in the streets [H7339] :(Wisdom: Heb. Wisdoms, that is, Excellent wisdom)
1:21 She crieth [H7121] in the chief place [H7218] of concourse [H1993] , in the openings [H6607] of the gates [H8179] : in the city [H5892] she uttereth [H559] her words [H561] , [saying],
1:22 How long, ye simple ones [H6612] , will ye love [H157] simplicity [H6612] ? and the scorners [H3887] delight [H2530] in their scorning [H3944] , and fools [H3684] hate [H8130] knowledge [H1847] ?
1:23 Turn [H7725] you at my reproof [H8433] : behold, I will pour out [H5042] my spirit [H7307] unto you, I will make known [H3045] my words [H1697] unto you.
1:24 Because I have called [H7121] , and ye refused [H3985] ; I have stretched out [H5186] my hand [H3027] , and no man regarded [H7181] ;
1:25 But ye have set at nought [H6544] all my counsel [H6098] , and would [H14] none of my reproof [H8433] :
1:26 I also will laugh [H7832] at your calamity [H343] ; I will mock [H3932] when your fear [H6343] cometh [H935] ;
1:27 When your fear [H6343] cometh [H935] as desolation [H7722] [H7584] , and your destruction [H343] cometh [H857] as a whirlwind [H5492] ; when distress [H6869] and anguish [H6695] cometh [H935] upon you.
1:28 Then shall they call [H7121] upon me, but I will not answer [H6030] ; they shall seek me early [H7836] , but they shall not find [H4672] me:
1:29 For that they hated [H8130] knowledge [H1847] , and did not choose [H977] the fear [H3374] of the LORD [H3068] :
1:30 They would [H14] none of my counsel [H6098] : they despised [H5006] all my reproof [H8433] .
1:31 Therefore shall they eat [H398] of the fruit [H6529] of their own way [H1870] , and be filled [H7646] with their own devices [H4156] .
1:32 For the turning away [H4878] of the simple [H6612] shall slay [H2026] them, and the prosperity [H7962] of fools [H3684] shall destroy [H6] them.(turning: or, ease of the simple)
1:33 But whoso hearkeneth [H8085] unto me shall dwell [H7931] safely [H983] , and shall be quiet [H7599] from fear [H6343] of evil [H7451] .
