ECB(i) 1 The proverbs of Shelomoh the son of David sovereign of Yisra El: 2 to know wisdom and discipline; to discern sayings of discernment; 3 to take discipline of comprehension, justness, judgment and straightnesses; 4 to give strategy to the gullible; to the lad knowledge and intrigue. 5 The wise hear and increase doctrine; and the discerning chattelize to wise counsels: 6 to discern a proverb and the satire; the words of the wise and their riddles. 7 to awe of Yah Veh is the beginning of knowledge; fools disrespect wisdom and discipline. 8 My son, hear the discipline of your father and abandon not the torah of your mother: 9 - a wreath of charism to your head and chokers around your throat. 10 My son, if sinners entice you, be not willing: 11 if they say, Come with us, we lurk for blood, we hide out gratuitously for the innocent; 12 we swallow them alive as sheol; the integrious, as those who descend into the well; 13 we find all esteemed wealth; we fill our houses with spoil; 14 fell your pebble among us; we all have one pouch! 15 - my son, walk not in the way with them; withhold your foot from their path: 16 for their feet run to evil and hasten to pour blood. 17 Surely the net is winnowed gratuitously in the eye of any master of wing: 18 they lurk for their own blood; they hide out for their own souls: 19 thus are the ways of all the greedy of greed; who take away the soul of their masters. 20 Wisdom shouts; she gives her voice in the broadways; 21 she calls out in the top of the roaring - in the portals of the portals; in the city she says her sayings, 22 Until when, O gullible, love you gullibility? and scorners delight in their scorning? and fools hate knowledge? 23 Turn at my reproof; behold, I gush my spirit to you; I make known my words to you. 24 Because I called and you refuse; I spread my hand and no one hearkens; 25 you loose all my counsel and will none of my reproof. 26 I laugh at your calamity; I deride when your dread comes 27 - when your dread comes as devastation and your calamity comes as a hurricane; when tribulation and distress come on you. 28 Then they call me, and I answer not; they seek me early, and they find me not; 29 because they hate knowledge and choose not the awe of Yah Veh; 30 they will not my counsel; they scorn all my reproof; 31 they eat of the fruit of their own way and satiate with their own counsels: 32 for the apostasy of the gullible slaughters them and the serenity of fools destroys them. 33 And whoever hearkens to me tabernacles confidently; and relaxes from dread of evil.
