    The Commendation Of Wisdom

    Proverbs Chapter 8 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 8
    King James Version

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

    I wisdom dwell with prudence,
    and find out knowledge of witty inventions.​
    13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil:
    pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way,
    and the froward mouth, do I hate.​
    14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom:
    I am understanding; I have strength.​
    15 By me kings reign,
    and princes decree justice.​
    16 By me princes rule, and nobles,
    even all the judges of the earth.​
    17 I love them that love me;
    and those that seek me early shall find me.​
    18 Riches and honour are with me;
    yea, durable riches and righteousness.​
    19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold;
    and my revenue than choice silver.​
    20 I lead in the way of righteousness,
    in the midst of the paths of judgment:​
    21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance;
    and I will fill their treasures.​

    The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way,
    before his works of old.​
    23 I was set up from everlasting,
    from the beginning, or ever the earth was.​
    24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth;
    when there were no fountains abounding with water.​
    25 Before the mountains were settled,
    before the hills was I brought forth:​
    26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields,
    nor the highest part of the dust of the world.​
    27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there:
    when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:​
    28 When he established the clouds above:
    when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:​
    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:​
    30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him:
    and I was daily his delight,
    rejoicing always before him;​
    31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth;
    and my delights were with the sons of men.​

    Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children:
    for blessed are they that keep my ways.​
    33 Hear instruction, and be wise,
    and refuse it not.​
    34 Blessed is the man that heareth me,
    watching daily at my gates,
    waiting at the posts of my doors.​
    35 For whoso findeth me findeth life,
    and shall obtain favour of the Lord.​
    36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul:
    all they that hate me love death.

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
