Proverbs 2

Bíblia

 

1  My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

2  So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

3  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

4  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

5  Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

6  For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

7  He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

8  He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

9  Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

10  When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

11  Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

12  To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

13  Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

14  Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

15  Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

16  To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

17  Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

18  For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

19  None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

20  That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

21  For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

22  But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

“Wisdom”

Bíblia

 

1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?

2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.

3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.

4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.

5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.

6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.

7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.

8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.

11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.

16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.

17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.

19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.

20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:

21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. Proverbs 8:1-21

 

“Sabedoria”

Bíblia

 

1 Não clama porventura a sabedoria, e a inteligência não faz ouvir a sua voz?

2 No cume das alturas, junto ao caminho, nas encruzilhadas das veredas se posta.

3 Do lado das portas da cidade, à entrada da cidade, e à entrada das portas está gritando:

4 A vós, ó homens, clamo; e a minha voz se dirige aos filhos dos homens.

5 Entendei, ó simples, a prudência; e vós, insensatos, entendei de coração.

6 Ouvi, porque falarei coisas excelentes; os meus lábios se abrirão para a eqüidade.

7 Porque a minha boca proferirá a verdade, e os meus lábios abominam a impiedade.

8 São justas todas as palavras da minha boca: não há nelas nenhuma coisa tortuosa nem pervertida.

9 Todas elas são retas para aquele que as entende bem, e justas para os que acham o conhecimento.

10 Aceitai a minha correção, e não a prata; e o conhecimento, mais do que o ouro fino escolhido.

11 Porque melhor é a sabedoria do que os rubis; e tudo o que mais se deseja não se pode comparar com ela.

12 Eu, a sabedoria, habito com a prudência, e acho o conhecimento dos conselhos.

13 O temor do Senhor é odiar o mal; a soberba e a arrogância, o mau caminho e a boca perversa, eu odeio.

14 Meu é o conselho e a verdadeira sabedoria; eu sou o entendimento; minha é a fortaleza.

15 Por mim reinam os reis e os príncipes decretam justiça.

16 Por mim governam príncipes e nobres; sim, todos os juízes da terra.

17 Eu amo aos que me amam, e os que cedo me buscarem, me acharão.

18 Riquezas e honra estão comigo; assim como os bens duráveis e a justiça.

19 Melhor é o meu fruto do que o ouro, do que o ouro refinado, e os meus ganhos mais do que a prata escolhida.

20 Faço andar pelo caminho da justiça, no meio das veredas do juízo.

21 Para que faça herdar bens permanentes aos que me amam, e eu encha os seus tesouros. Provérbios 8:1-21 (ALMEIDA, corrigida, fiel)
