Does not wisdom cry out,
And understanding lift up her voice?
She takes her stand on the top of the high hill,
Beside the way, where the paths meet.
And you fools, be of an understanding heart.
Listen, for I will speak of excellent things,
And from the opening of my lips will come right things;
.....Receive my instruction, and not silver
And knowledge rather than choice gold;
For wisdom is better than rubies,
And all the things that one may desire
Cannot be compared to her.
...Now, therefore, listen to me, my children,
For blessed are those who keep my ways.
Hear instruction and be wise,
And do not disdain it.
Blessed is the man who listens to me,
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at the posts of my doors.
~Selected verses from Proverbs 8,NKJV
