1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; (Prov. 1:2)

3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; (Prov. 1:3)

4 To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. (Prov. 1:4)

5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: (Prov. 1:5)

6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. (Prov. 1:6)

7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Prov. 1:7)

8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: (Prov. 1:8)

9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. (Prov. 1:9)

10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. (Prov. 1:10)

11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: (Prov. 1:11)

12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: (Prov. 1:12)

13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: (Prov. 1:13)

14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: (Prov. 1:14)

15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: (Prov. 1:15)

16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. (Prov. 1:16)

17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. (Prov. 1:17)

18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. (Prov. 1:18)

19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof. (Prov. 1:19)

20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: (Prov. 1:20)

21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, (Prov. 1:21)

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? (Prov. 1:22)

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. (Prov. 1:23)

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; (Prov. 1:24)

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: (Prov. 1:25)

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; (Prov. 1:26)

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. (Prov. 1:27)

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: (Prov. 1:28)

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: (Prov. 1:29)

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. (Prov. 1:30)

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. (Prov. 1:31)

32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. (Prov. 1:32)

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil. (Prov. 1:33)
