I wisdom dwell with prudence and have knowledge and discretion. To fear Jehovah is to hate evil. I hate pride, arrogance, evil conduct and perverse speech.
My council is competent out of sound wisdom. I have understanding and strength.
By me kings reign and rulers make just laws. By me princes rule, as do nobles and all judges. I love those that love me and they that search for me find me.
Riches and honor are with me, along with lasting wealth and righteousness.
My fruit is better than solid gold, my harvest better than pure silver.
I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, giving wealth as an inheritance to those who love me and filling their treasuries.
