 :: Holy Bible (KJV): Old Testament: Proverbs: Chapter 1

1:1

 

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

1:2

 

To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;

1:3

 

To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;

1:4

 

To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

1:5

 

A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:

1:6

 

To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

1:7

 

The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.

1:8

 

My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

1:9

 

For they [shall be] an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

1:10

 

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

1:11

 

If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

1:12

 

Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

1:13

 

We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

1:14

 

Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

1:15

 

My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

1:16

 

For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

1:17

 

Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

1:18

 

And they lay wait for their [own] blood; they lurk privily for their [own] lives.

1:19

 

So [are] the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; [which] taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

1:20

 

Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

1:21

 

She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, [saying],

1:22

 

How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

1:23

 

Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

1:24

 

Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

1:25

 

But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

1:26

 

I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

1:27

 

When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

1:28

 

Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

1:29

 

For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

1:30

 

They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

1:31

 

Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

1:32

 

For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

1:33

 

But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
