684. Wisdom puts forth its voice, listen to it

Wisdom puts forth its voice, listen to it – Proverbs 8:1-14

Proverbs 8:1-14

Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?

She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.

She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.

Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.

O ye simple (guides, unsuspecting), understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.

Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.

For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness (lawlessness) is an abomination to my lips.

All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward (twisted, crafty) or perverse in them.

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.

12 I wisdom dwell with prudence (wisdom applied to practice; caution in deliberating and consulting on the most suitable means to accomplish a valuable purpose and discerning and selecting them) 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 (perverse) mouth, do I hate.

14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding (discerning); I have strength.

Wisdom puts forth its voice, listen to it
