2 H3045 to know H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction; H995 to discern H561 the words H998 of understanding;
3 H3947 to receive H4148 instruction H7919 in wise H6664 dealing, in righteousness, H6664 justice, H4339 and equity;
4 H5414 to give H6195 prudence H6612 to the simple, H1847 knowledge H4209 and discretion H5288 to the young man:
5 H2450 that the wise H8085 man may hear, H3254 and increase H3948 in learning; H995 that the man of understanding H7069 may attain H8458 to sound counsel:
6 H995 to understand H4912 a proverb, H4426 and parables, H1697 the words H2420 and riddles H2450 of the wise.
7 H3374 The fear H3068 of Yahweh H7225 is the beginning H1847 of knowledge; H191 but the foolish H936 despise H2451 wisdom H4148 and instruction.
8 H1121 My son, H8085 listen H1 to your father's H4148 instruction, H5203 and don't forsake H517 your mother's H8451 teaching:
9 H3880 for they will be a garland H2580 to grace H7218 your head, H6060 and chains H1621 around your neck.
11 H559 If they say, H3212 "Come H693 with us, Let's lay in wait H1818 for blood; H6845 let's lurk H5355 secretly for the innocent H2600 without cause;
12 H1104 let's swallow them up H2416 alive H7585 like Sheol, H8549 and whole, H3381 like those who go down H953 into the pit.
13 H4672 We'll find H3368 all valuable H1952 wealth. H4390 We'll fill H1004 our houses H7998 with spoil.
15 H1121 My son, H3212 don't walk H1870 in the way H4513 with them. Keep H7272 your foot H5410 from their path,
18 H693 but these lay wait H1818 for their own blood. H6845 They lurk secretly H5315 for their own lives.
19 H734 So are the ways H1214 of everyone who is greedy H1215 for gain. H3947 It takes away H5315 the life H1167 of its owners.
20 H2454 Wisdom H7442 calls H2351 aloud in the street. H5414 She utters H6963 her voice H7339 in the public squares.
21 H7121 She calls H7218 at the head H7218 of noisy places. H6607 At the entrance H5892 of the city H8179 gates, H559 she utters H561 her words:
22 H6612 "How long, you simple ones, H157 will you love H6612 simplicity? H3887 How long will mockers H2530 delight H3944 themselves in mockery, H3684 and fools H8130 hate H1847 knowledge?
23 H7725 Turn H8433 at my reproof. H5042 Behold, I will pour out H7307 my spirit H3045 on you. I will make known H1697 my words to you.
24 H7121 Because I have called, H3985 and you have refused; H5186 I have stretched out H3027 my hand, H7181 and no one has paid attention;
26 H7832 I also will laugh H343 at your disaster. H3932 I will mock H6343 when calamity H935 overtakes you;
27 H6343 when calamity H935 overtakes H5492 you like a storm, H343 when your disaster H857 comes H5492 on like a whirlwind; H6869 when distress H6695 and anguish H935 come on you.
28 H7121 Then will they call H6030 on me, but I will not answer. H7836 They will seek me diligently, H4672 but they will not find me;
31 H398 Therefore they will eat H6529 of the fruit H1870 of their own way, H7646 and be filled H4156 with their own schemes.
32 H4878 For the backsliding H6612 of the simple H2026 will kill H7962 them. The careless ease H3684 of fools H6 will destroy them.
