(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 1 Proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 2 For knowing wisdom and instruction, For understanding sayings of intelligence,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 3 For receiving the instruction of wisdom, Righteousness, judgment, and uprightness,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 4 For giving to simple ones -- prudence, To a youth -- knowledge and discretion.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 5 (The wise doth hear and increaseth learning, And the intelligent doth obtain counsels.)
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 6 For understanding a proverb and its sweetness, Words of the wise and their acute sayings.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 7 Fear of Jehovah is a beginning of knowledge, Wisdom and instruction fools have despised!
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 8 Hear, my son, the instruction of thy father, And leave not the law of thy mother,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 9 For a graceful wreath are they to thy head, And chains to thy neck.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 10 My son, if sinners entice thee be not willing.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 11 If they say, 'Come with us, we lay wait for blood, We watch secretly for the innocent without cause,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 12 We swallow them as Sheol -- alive, And whole -- as those going down to the pit,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 13 Every precious substance we find, We fill our houses with spoil,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 14 Thy lot thou dost cast among us, One purse is -- to all of us.'
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 15 My son! go not in the way with them, Withhold thy foot from their path,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 16 For their feet to evil do run, And they haste to shed blood.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 17 Surely in vain is the net spread out before the eyes of any bird.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 18 And they for their own blood lay wait, They watch secretly for their own lives.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 19 So are the paths of every gainer of dishonest gain, The life of its owners it taketh.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 20 Wisdom in an out-place crieth aloud, In broad places she giveth forth her voice,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 21 At the head of the multitudes she calleth, In the openings of the gates, In the city her sayings she saith:
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 22 'Till when, ye simple, do ye love simplicity? And have scorners their scorning desired? And do fools hate knowledge?
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 23 Turn back at my reproof, lo, I pour forth to you my spirit, I make known my words with you.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 24 Because I have called, and ye refuse, I stretched out my hand, and none is attending,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 25 And ye slight all my counsel, And my reproof ye have not desired.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 26 I also in your calamity do laugh, I deride when your fear cometh,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 27 When your fear cometh as destruction, And your calamity as a hurricane doth come, When on you come adversity and distress.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 28 Then they call me, and I do not answer, They seek me earnestly, and find me not.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 29 Because that they have hated knowledge, And the fear of Jehovah have not chosen.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 30 They have not consented to my counsel, They have despised all my reproof,
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 31 And they eat of the fruit of their way, And from their own counsels they are filled.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 32 For the turning of the simple slayeth them, And the security of the foolish destroyeth them.
(YLT) Proverbs 1 : 33 And whoso is hearkening to me dwelleth confidently, And is quiet from fear of evil!'
