Proverbs 8:14-26 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
14 Counsel and sound wisdom are mine.
I have understanding and power.
15 By me kings reign
and princes decree justice.
16 By me princes govern,
and all nobles who judge righteously.
17 I love those who love me.
Those who earnestly seek me find me.
18 With me are wealth and honor,
enduring riches and righteousness.
19 My fruit is better than refined gold,
my harvest better than choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of righteousness,
along paths of justice.
21 I endow substance to those who love me
and fill their treasuries.
Wisdom Before Creation
22 “Adonai brought me forth,
the first of His way,
before His works of old.
23 From eternity I was appointed
from the beginning, before the world began.
24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth,
when there were no fountains abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains were shaped,
before the hills, I was brought forth.
26 He had not yet made the land,
the fields, or the first dust of the earth.
