The TRUTH of JESUS

 

Proverbs 8:1-4

King James Version

8 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.


Do you know the TRUTH of JESUS?

More than you already know?

Or have been told?

Although this Proverbs chapter speaks of wisdom, it could very well be JESUS speaking of Himself.

How He began.

Who He is.

What He asks of us.

Proverbs 8:22

King James Version

22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, 

before his works of old.


Proverbs 8:23

King James Version

23 I was set up from everlasting, 

from the beginning, 

or ever the earth was.


Proverbs 8:24

King James Version

24 When there were no depths, 

I was brought forth

when there were no fountains abounding with water.


Proverbs 8:25-26

King James Version

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.


Proverbs 8:27-29

King James Version

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:


Proverbs 8:30-31

King James Version

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.


Proverbs 8:6

King James Version

6 Hear; 

for I will speak of excellent things; 

and the opening of my lips shall be right things.


Proverbs 8:7

7 For my mouth shall speak truth; 

and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.

there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

14 Counsel is mine, 

and sound wisdom:

I am understanding; 

I have strength.


Proverbs 8:15

King James Version

15 By me kings reign, 

and princes decree justice.


Proverbs 8:16

King James Version

16 By me princes rule, 

and nobles, 

even all the judges of the earth.


Proverbs 8:17

King James Version

17 I love them that love me; 

and those that seek me early shall find me.


Proverbs 8:18

King James Version

18 Riches and honour are with me; 

yea, durable riches and righteousness.

yea, than fine gold; 

and my revenue than choice silver.


Proverbs 8:20-21

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 8:10

King James Version

10 Receive my instruction, 

and not silver; 

and knowledge rather than choice gold.


Proverbs 8:13

King James Version

13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: 

pride, 

and arrogancy, 

and the evil way, 

and the froward mouth, 

do I hate.


Proverbs 8:32

King James Version

32 Now therefore hearken unto me, 

O ye children:

for blessed are they that keep my ways.


Proverbs 8:33

King James Version

33 Hear instruction, 

and be wise, 

and refuse it not.

watching daily at my gates, 

waiting at the posts of my doors.

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.
