Proverbs 8:23-36

Bishops(i) 23 I haue ben ordayned from euerlasting, and from the beginning or euer the earth was made 24 When I was borne there were neither depthes nor springes of water 25 Before the foundations of the mountaines were layde: yea before all hilles, was I borne 26 The earth, and all that is vpon the earth was not yet made, no not the dust it selfe 27 For when he made the heauens, I was present, when he compassed the deapthes about 28 When he hanged the cloudes aboue, when he fastened the springes of the deepe 29 When he shut the sea within certaine boundes, that the waters should not go ouer their markes that he commaunded: when he layde the foundations of the earth 30 I was with him ordring all thinges, deliting dayly and reioysyng alway before hym 31 As for the rounde compasse of this worlde I make it ioyfull: for my delite is to be among the chyldren of men 32 Therefore hearken vnto me: O ye chyldren, blessed are they that kepe my wayes 33 O geue eare vnto nurture, be wyse, and refuse it not 34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching dayly at my gates, and geuing attendaunce at the postes of my doores 35 For whoso findeth me, findeth life, and shall obtaine fauour of the Lorde 36 But whoso offendeth against me, hurteth his owne soule: and they that hate me, are the louers of death
