Unto you , O men, I call, and my voice is to the sons of man.
Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; for my moth shall speak truth; for wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward moth, do I hate. I am understanding; I have strength. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall fine me. Riches and honour are with me, yea durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea than fine gold; an my revenue than choice silver. The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before the worlds of old. I was set up from everlasting ,from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
