English Standard Version
12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence,
and I find knowledge and (A)discretion.
13 (B)The fear of the Lord is (C)hatred of evil.
(D)Pride and arrogance and the way of evil
and (E)perverted speech I hate.
14 I have (F)counsel and (G)sound wisdom;
I have insight; (H)I have strength.
15 By me (I)kings reign,
and rulers decree what is just;
16 by me princes rule,
and nobles, all who govern justly.[a]
17 (J)I love those who love me,
and (K)those who seek me diligently find me.
18 (L)Riches and honor are with me,
(M)enduring wealth and (N)righteousness.
19 My fruit is (O)better than (P)gold, even fine gold,
and my yield than (Q)choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of righteousness,
in the paths of justice,
21 granting an inheritance to those who love me,
and filling their treasuries.
