By me princes rule, and nobles, All the judges of the earth.

I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold, And my revenue than choice silver. I traverse the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice, That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries. I, wisdom dwell with prudence : Where prudence —self-control, good judgment — is found, there wisdom will be found.

A life given to impulse and extremes will not gain, appreciate, or display wisdom. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil : Reverence for God and the wisdom that comes from it is not neutral towards evil. Like the God it respects, it hates evil, along with the pride and arrogance and perverse mouth that often express evil. They not only leave sin, but loathe it, and are at deadly feud with it.

By me kings reign : Many gain power, stay in power, and exercise power through gaining and using wisdom. Adam Clarke had an interesting thought on the phrase I have strength. From it comes all mathematical learning , all mechanical knowledge ; from it originally came the inclined plane , the wedge , the screw , the pulley , in all its multiplications ; and the lever , in all its combinations and varieties , came from this wisdom. And as all these can produce prodigies of power , far surpassing all kinds of animal energy , and all the effects of the utmost efforts of muscular force.

I love those who love me : Those who love and pursue wisdom will find themselves rewarded. They will find wisdom those who seek me diligently will find me and the blessings wisdom brings riches and honor…righteousness. It could even be said that wisdom seeks out her followers to bless them that I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth. I have been established from everlasting, From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.

When there were no depths I was brought forth, When there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills, I was brought forth; While as yet He had not made the earth or the fields, Or the primal dust of the world. When He prepared the heavens, I was there, When He drew a circle on the face of the deep, When He established the clouds above, When He strengthened the fountains of the deep, When He assigned to the sea its limit, So that the waters would not transgress His command, When He marked out the foundations of the earth, Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him, Rejoicing in His inhabited world, And my delight was with the sons of men.

If we represent wisdom as a person, then it can be said that wisdom was with God in creation.

Proverbs 8 – In Praise of Wisdom

In the beginning, before there was ever an earth , God used wisdom in making something out of nothing. A phrase from Proverbs The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way became a key support for the teaching of an influential heretic in the early church. Arius used this verse from the Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, which puts the phrase like this: The Lord created me at the beginning of His way. Arius argued that Jesus is the wisdom of God, and this verse spoke of his creation. If he was created, then he had a beginning and was not eternal, and if not eternal he was not God.

The errors of Arius were many.

On this particular passage, he exaggerated the way that wisdom in Proverbs 8 is Jesus Christ. I, wisdom dwell with prudence : Where prudence —self-control, good judgment — is found, there wisdom will be found. A life given to impulse and extremes will not gain, appreciate, or display wisdom.

When He prepared the heavens, I was there, When He drew a circle on the face of the deep, When He established the clouds above, When He strengthened the fountains of the deep, When He assigned to the sea its limit, So that the waters would not transgress His command, When He marked out the foundations of the earth, Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him, Rejoicing in His inhabited world, And my delight was with the sons of men.

Proverbs 1 Commentary - English Annotations on the Holy Bible

The errors of Arius were many. On this particular passage, he exaggerated the way that wisdom in Proverbs 8 is Jesus Christ. It is wonderfully true that Jesus is the wisdom of God, especially in His work on the cross 1 Corinthians , and that Jesus became for us wisdom from God 1 Corinthians , and in Jesus are hidden all the treasures of wisdom Colossians Yet it is a mistake to say that Proverbs 8 describes Jesus in a sort of direct correlation.

Because Jesus is God He has and expresses and demonstrates the wisdom of God; but the woman of Proverbs 8 does not directly describe Jesus. A second — and perhaps more fundamental error — of Arius on the passage was to translate the Hebrew word qanah as created or birthed instead of possessed. While there is some case to be made for the idea of created or birthed , on balance the best translation is possessed. Cancel Save.
