Proverbs 8

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.

22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.

36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

  1. Verses 32-36 MSG “So, my dear friends, listen carefully; those who embrace these my ways are most blessed. Mark a life of discipline and live wisely; don’t squander your precious life. Blessed the man, blessed the woman, who listens to me, awake and ready for me each morning, alert and responsive as I start my day’s work. When you find me, you find life, real life, to say nothing of God’s good pleasure. But if you wrong me, you damage your very soul; when you reject me, you’re flirting with death.”

    Same verses CEV “Pay attention, my children! Follow my advice, and you will be happy. Listen carefully to my instructions, and you will be wise. Come to my home each day and listen to me. You will find happiness. By finding me, you find life, and the Lord will be pleased with you. But if you don’t find me, you hurt only yourself, and if you hate me, you are in love with death.” The Lord thought you were worth dying for and he calls us friends. As we have been reminded these past five weeks that “A friend loveth at all times” Proverbs 17:17a and “The Lord is not…willing that any should perish…” II Peter 3:9

  2. 15. Because of me, kings reign, and rulers make just decrees.

    16. Rulers lead with my help, and nobles make righteous judgments. NLT

    Since kings, rulers and nobles need wisdom to help them, why wouldn’t we? Don’t forget, we are children of the King and represent Him everywhere we go.

  3. Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭8‬:‭32-36‬ KJV)

  4. 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

    This is a very wise, but simple saying. The reason so many people get in trouble is because they will not hear instructions. They refuse to take direction because they feel that there is another way. There is only one way to heaven and everyone must come in at the door. God has the best security system there is, because there will never be a break-in. Everyone who gets to heaven God already knows and it would be wise for us to hear the instructions that God has given us.

  5. THE LOVE = HATE RELATIONSHIP

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

    The deeper our LOVE and commitment GROW for JESUS the deeper our hate will GROW for evil.

    TLB
    13 If anyone respects and fears God, he will hate evil. For wisdom hates pride, arrogance, corruption, and deceit of every kind.

    MSG
    The Fear-of-God means hating Evil,
    whose ways I hate with a passion—
    pride and arrogance and crooked talk.

    If we enjoy what JESUS died for (sin) then we reveal and display a lack of respect and fear (reverence) for and to GOD.

    Choose to LOVE GOD and HATE EVIL this is a demonstration of WORSHIP to the King of Kings and the LORD of LORDS.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWorship
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  6. 17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me

    In order to find Him and His direction you must SEEK Him!

  7. 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.

    Speak with a purpose. Speak with wisdom. Our world is turned upside down because people just let their mouths run. Speak with excellence. Speak with authority. Speak in Jesus name.

  8. 32 “And so, my children, listen to me, for all who follow my ways are joyful.
    33 Listen to my instruction and be wise. Don’t ignore it. (NLT)

    We should never ignore wisdom or we will end up places we never thought ourselves to be. We are to be wise and obey that we may have joy and rightfully example a lifestyle of being a child of God.

  9. Sin = Death

    32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
    33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
    34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
    35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.
    36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

    God’s Instruction Book is The Bible. The Bible gives the answer for any problem, any advice you may need, or any instruction of life you may need. Also, the Lord has given us our Pastor and our Elders to advice us, pray for us, and give us instruction. We must be wise enough to know that we must seek their guidance, heed their warnings, and know that you are loved by them. I know that I could have never conquer some of the battles without them. I pray to my Lord Jesus Christ every day for the protection, health, and strength to my Pastor and my Elders; for they are a key to our spiritual growth. I thank the Lord everyday for He has given me righteous, ethical men of God as leaders in my life. In Jesus Name AMEN.

  10. 32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

    33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

    34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.

    Proverbs 9:1 – Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars: Prudence, Knowledge and Discretion, Fear of God, Sound Wisdom, Understanding and Power

    Applying these to our lives will help us walk in a Godly manner, making good, sound choices and laying a solid foundation to build upon.

  11. 30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

    31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

    32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

    33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

    34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.

    36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

    When we refuse instruction from the Lord we are asking for death! Listening to God may not always be easy or make sense to us, but God knows what he’s doing, and as long as we follow his instructions, one day we will be rejoicing in heaven with him and it will all be worth it!!

  12. Proverbs 8:1 (NLT)
    “Listen as Wisdom calls out! Hear as understanding raises her voice!”

    Job 28:28 (NLT)
    “And this is what he says to all humanity: The fear of the Lord is true wisdom; to forsake evil is real understanding.”

    So, Wisdom is calling out “Fear the Lord,” and understanding is saying “Forsake evil.”

  13. 11For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies.
    Nothing you desire can compare with it.

    Would it not have been great if we had wisdom as a young person? The troubles we could have avoided. Value your parents, grandparents and those older than, for they have a treasure full of wisdom. With age comes wisdom.

  14. 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.

  15. 32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

    33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

    34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.

    36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

    Finding wisdom is finding life. Reject it and we lose the favor of the Lord. People who do not believe in a holy God and in pursuing his word and his ways plainly do not understand that they love death. This may sound harsh but in America, is there truly anyone who has never heard of Jesus dying on the cross for them? We must reach these souls compelling them to come into his house and hear words for their salvation from a loving and patient God.

  16. Proverbs 8:35-36 For whoso finds me finds life,and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul: all they who hate me love death.

  17. iLove to eat more Word

    prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

    The Lord is able to give us special knowledge and insight into everything we do. This turns into great favor in the jobsite and also in the ministries we are over. Thank you Jesus

  18. “Listen as Wisdom calls out! Hear as understanding raises her voice! On the hilltop along the road, she takes her stand at the crossroads. By the gates at the entrance to the town, on the road leading in, she cries aloud, “I call to you, to all of you! I raise my voice to all people. You simple people, use good judgment. You foolish people, show some understanding. Listen to me! For I have important things to tell you. Everything I say is right, for I speak the truth and detest every kind of deception.”

    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭8:1-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

     Lord I pray that I would listen to Wisdom… Let me be in tune with you. 

  19. Proverbs 8:35 (ESV Strong’s)
    35 For whoever finds me finds life
    and obtains favor from the Lord,

    Favor isn’t fair. It is favor. When God bestows favor on someone there is power, and anointing. Favor is what we should desire more than anything else. How can we get it? Seek wisdom. We seek wisdom and we can gain favor. God made it simple if we are willing to go after it.

  20. 32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

    Hear ken unto wisdom. It’s one thing to hear wisdom but another to listen to it. Put wisdom into action. When we ignore wisdom we act foolishly.

  21. 34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.
    We want to obtain the favor of the lord! We need to make sure we follow Gods way and instruction.

  22. 30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

    31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

    32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

    33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

    34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.

    36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

    We need to except Correction an also be receiving in instruction, also a wise men excepts correction . We must follow the lord and his word and not the things of this world I’ll tell you this when we seek the things of this world It will lead to death,we need to repent and turn from our sins and forgive . Don’t get cursed and hate him that loves, don’t be to prideful we all need someone in life when we think we don’t. Follow the lords foot steps and seek life witch is in the lord and you will find favour

  23. Bellman!

    A town crier, or bellman, is an officer of the court who makes public pronouncements as required by the court

    Wisdom is not silenced because of others lack of understanding but that is when she speaks the loudest and most. Wisdom is always speaking but she is clearly heard when others realize their lack of understanding or when tragedy strikes.

    She is like a town crier or bellman. She makes public announcements given from heavens court and she roams the earth speaking what God has established. Like John the Baptist, Noah, and now the Saints of God. We go out into the city proclaiming the Gospel with a loud voice yet with wisdom do we speak to others. Some will hear and others will turn a deaf ear until they realize they are lacking understanding or until tragedy happens in their lives.

  24. 13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

    Evil is the only thing we can hate. Sin, the enemy and all unrighteousness we should hate as God does. There is no room for tolerance we are to come out from among them and be separate. Holiness has nothing to do with evil. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil.

  25. More about wisdom. How depressing…wisdom and knowledge were esteemed greatly by our religious examples yet our generation is lacking in both.

    There are more lost people now than there has ever been before. There are more who are unwise in Godly council. Let us rise up from among them and instruct them in the ways of righteousness.

  26. “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate”. The word of God (Jesus) says “WE” were made in his image (Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them). One that thinks better of self, is unwise; just as one that thinks God does not love them, is also unwise. Dear God, help me to see self, as you do, and help me to change as needed so that I may please you; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. “In God we trust”. What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  27. “For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord. But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death.””
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭8:35-36‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    There is so much to learn in this lifetime. Once we see the beauty in wisdom and knowledge we can find so much more value in the world God has created. To ignore the idea of mental and spiritual growth are foolish. They’re wasting away the miracles of life. We should strive to grow in wisdom every chance we get. Wisdom is power.

  28. O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭8‬:‭5-7‬ KJV)

    If wisdom and understanding are in the family and call out to you day and night, are we listening? Speak of excellence. Work in righteousness. Don’t go around bad mouthing. We should always be working to unity. We should always be working toward restoration and gathering those who have strayed back into the group. Speaking ill of someone or something only works toward division. Hold tight to wisdom and understanding. Listen to their voices as they are calling for truth, excellence, and right things. Live with them and do not turn to the wickedness of speaking badly about others and situations.

  29. 11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

    If you have a choice between gaining wisdom or gaining wealth, choose wisdom. It’s more valuable to you in your walk with God than riches ever will be.

  30. Wisdom is the center of this scripture, with such information of how it will promote thyself. But, it gives great reference of it’s importance versus any riches of gold/silver, or other monetary devices. But, it clearly states that you can be blessed financially with wisdom. We are to LOVE WISDOM, and hear the voice of wisdom, and that wisdom is JESUS CHRIST, HOLY GHOST, FATHER, in these three are one. Jesus, did say my sheep know my voice, and they follow me! We have to hear wisdom when he speaks to us. I pray, to be very sensitive to his voice, and follow him “HOME”. “HEAR WISDOM”……..”LOVE HER”……………………………

    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.

    “LOTS of GREAT Stuff Here”…..”HATE EVIL”……………………………………….

  31. It’s so easy to get our priorites out of allignment, to lose sight of whats most valuable. So many goals compete for attention: professional success, domestic hapiness, financial security, good health, intimacy with God. Even when we think we know how to “rank” our priorities properly, balancing them can be difficult. That’s why we need wisdom do desperately, so we can have the insight to discern what’s most important in a world of competing demands. Wisdom is such a great value to wisdom is because, without it, we could waste our lives focusing on the wrong things. Wisdom enables us to know the difference between what gives life and what leads to death (vs35-36).

  32. Treasures !!!! 17. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. 1 Sam. 2 : 30; John 14 : 21 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. Prov. 3 : 10 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. As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
