Proverbs Chapter 1

, --- , . 1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
; , . 2 To know wisdom and instruction; to comprehend the words of understanding;
, ; , . 3 To receive the discipline of wisdom, justice, and right, and equity;
; , . 4 To give prudence to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion;
, ; , . 5 That the wise man may hear, and increase in learning, and the man of understanding may attain unto wise counsels;
, ; , . 6 To understand a proverb, and a figure; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
, ; , . 7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; but the foolish despise wisdom and discipline. {P}
, ; -, . 8 Hear, my son, the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the teaching of thy mother;
, ; , . 9 For they shall be a chaplet of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
-- - , -. 10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

11 If they say: 'Come with us, {N}
let us lie in wait for blood, let us lurk 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, restrain thy foot from their path;
, ; , -. 16 For their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood.
-, -- , - . 17 For in vain the net is spread in the eyes of any bird;
, ; , . 18 And these lie in wait for their own blood, they lurk for their own lives.
--, - ; - . 19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; it taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
, ; , . 20 Wisdom crieth aloud in the streets, she uttereth her voice in the broad places;
, : -- . 21 She calleth at the head of the noisy streets, at the entrances of the gates, in the city, she uttereth her words:
-, -- -:
--, ; , -.
22 'How long, ye thoughtless, will ye love thoughtlessness? {N}
And how long will scorners delight them in 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 attended,
-; , . 25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof;
-, ; , . 26 I also, in your calamity, will laugh, I will mock when your dread cometh;
(), -- , ;
, .
27 When your dread cometh as a storm, and your calamity cometh on as a whirlwind; {N}
when trouble and distress come upon you.
, ; , . 28 Then will they call me, but I will not answer, they will seek me earnestly, 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 waywardness of the thoughtless shall slay them, and the confidence of fools shall destroy them.
, -; , . 33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell securely, and shall be quiet without fear of evil.' {P}
