Proverbs 8:1-8Revised Standard Version (RSV)

The Gifts of Wisdom

Does not wisdom call,
    Does not understanding raise her voice?
On the heights beside the way,
    in the paths she takes her stand;
beside the gates in front of the town,
    at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud:
“To you, O men, I call,
    and my cry is to the sons of men.
O simple ones, learn prudence;
    O foolish men, pay attention.
Hear, for I will speak noble things,
    and from my lips will come what is right;
for my mouth will utter truth;
    wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
All the words of my mouth are righteous;
    there is nothing twisted or crooked in them.

19 My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold,

21 endowing with wealth those who love me,
    and filling their treasuries.
