Proverbs 8:15-17 The Passion Translation (TPT)

15 I empower kings to reign[a] and rulers to make laws that are just.
16 I empower princes to rise and take dominion,
and generous ones to govern the earth.[b]
17 I will show my love to those who passionately love me.[c]
For they will search and search continually until they find me.


  1. Proverbs 8:15 We have been made kings and priestly rulers by the grace of redemption.
  2. Proverbs 8:16 As translated from many Hebrew manuscripts and the Septuagint. Other Hebrew manuscripts have “and all nobles who govern justly.” The word nobles can also be translated “generous ones.”
  3. Proverbs 8:17 Wisdom is not found by the halfhearted. One must love wisdom to gain it. A superficial desire will yield only a superficial knowledge.
