THOUGHT OF THE DAY


The Excellence of Wisdom
Proverbs 8:1-11
1 Does not Wisdom cry out,
And understanding lift up her voice?
2 She takes her stand on the top of the high hill,
Beside the way, where the paths meet.
3 she cries out by the gates, at the entry of the city
At the entrance of the doors:
4 “To you, O men, I call
And my voice is to the sons of men.
O you simple ones, understand prudence.
And you fools, be of an understanding heart.
6 Listen, for I will speak excellent things,
And from the opening of my lips will come right things;
7 For my mouth will speak truth;
Wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
8 All the words of my mouth are with righteousness;
Nothing crooked or perverse is in them.
9 They are all plain to him who understands,
And right to those who 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 one may desire cannot be compared with her.
