4 To give • subtilty to the simple , to the young man knowledge and discretion . discretion: or, advisement}
5 A wise [man] will hear • , and will increase • learning ; and a man of understanding • shall attain • unto wise counsels :
6 To understand • a proverb , and the interpretation ; the words of the wise , and their dark sayings . the interpretation: or, an eloquent speech}
7 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge : [but] fools despise • wisdom and instruction . the beginning: or, the principal part}
8 My son , hear • the instruction of thy father , and forsake • not the law of thy mother :
9 For they [shall be] an ornament of grace unto thy head , and chains about thy neck . an...: Heb. an adding}
10 My son , if sinners entice • thee, consent • thou not.
11 If they say • , Come • with us, let us lay wait • for blood , let us lurk • privily for the innocent without cause :
12 Let us swallow them up • alive as the grave ; and whole , as those that go down • into the pit :
13 We shall find • all precious substance , we shall fill • our houses with spoil :
14 Cast • in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse :
15 My son , walk • not thou in the way with them; refrain • thy foot from their path :
16 For their feet run • to evil , and make haste • to shed • blood .
17 Surely in vain the net is spread • in the sight of any bird •. in the...: Heb. in the eyes of every thing that hath a wing}
18 And they lay wait • for their [own] blood ; they lurk privily • for their [own] lives .
19 So [are] the ways of every one that is greedy • of gain ; [which] taketh away • the life of the owners thereof.
20 Wisdom crieth • without ; she uttereth • her voice in the streets : Wisdom: Heb. Wisdoms, that is, Excellent wisdom}
21 She crieth • in the chief place of concourse • , in the openings of the gates : in the city she uttereth • her words , [saying],
22 How long, ye simple ones , will ye love • simplicity ? and the scorners • delight • in their scorning , and fools hate • knowledge ?
23 Turn • you at my reproof : behold, I will pour out • my spirit unto you, I will make known • my words unto you.
24 Because I have called • , and ye refused • ; I have stretched out • my hand , and no man regarded •;
25 But ye have set at nought • all my counsel , and would • none of my reproof :
26 I also will laugh • at your calamity ; I will mock • when your fear cometh •;
27 When your fear cometh • as desolation • • , and your destruction cometh • as a whirlwind ; when distress and anguish cometh • upon you.
28 Then shall they call • upon me, but I will not answer • ; they shall seek me early • , but they shall not find • me:
29 For that they hated • knowledge , and did not choose • the fear of the LORD :
30 They would • none of my counsel : they despised • all my reproof .
31 Therefore shall they eat • of the fruit of their own way , and be filled • with their own devices .
32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay • them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy • them. turning...: or, ease of the simple}
33 But whoso hearkeneth • unto me shall dwell • safely , and shall be quiet • from fear of evil .If you see this; please contact the administrator and give the following information:ccbot/2.0 (http://commoncrawl.org/faq/)
