Proverbs 8:12-30 (New International Version 1984, ©1984)

 12 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
   I possess knowledge and discretion.
13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
   I hate pride and arrogance,
   evil behavior and perverse speech.
14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
   I have understanding and power.
15 By me kings reign
   and rulers make laws that are just;
16 by me princes govern,
   and all nobles who rule on earth.
17 I love those who love me,
   and those who seek me find me.
18 With me are riches and honor,
   enduring wealth and prosperity.
19 My fruit is better than fine gold;
   what I yield surpasses choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of righteousness,
   along the paths of justice,
21 bestowing wealth on those who love me
   and making their treasuries full.

 22 “The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works,
   before his deeds of old;
23 I was appointed from eternity,
   from the beginning, before the world began.
24 When there were no oceans, I was given birth,
   when there were no springs abounding with water;
25 before the mountains were settled in place,
   before the hills, I was given birth,
26 before he made the earth or its fields
   or any of the dust of the world.
27 I was there when he set the heavens in place,
   when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
28 when he established the clouds above
   and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
29 when he gave the sea its boundary
   so the waters would not overstep his command,
and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
 30 Then I was the craftsman at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
   rejoicing always in his presence,
