The Proverbs, chapter 1, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 1

Vulgate


   1 Parabolae Salomonis filii David regis Israel
   2 ad sciendam sapientiam et disciplinam, ad intellegenda verba prudentiae;
   3 ad suscipiendam eruditionem doctrinae, iustitiam et iudicium et aequitatem,
   4 ut detur parvulis astutia, adulescenti scientia et recogitatio.
   5 Audiat sapiens et addet doctrinam, et intellegens dispositiones possidebit:
   6 animadvertet parabolam et allegoriam, verba sapientium et aenigmata eorum.
   7 Timor Domini principium scientiae. Sapientiam atque doctrinam stulti despiciunt.
   8 Audi, fili mi, disciplinam patris tui et ne reicias legem matris tuae,
   9 quia diadema gratiae sunt capiti tuo, et torques collo tuo.
   10 Fili mi, si te lactaverint peccatores, ne acquiescas eis.
   11 Si dixerint: "Veni nobiscum, insidiemur sanguini, abscondamus tendiculas contra insontem frustra;
   12 deglutiamus eos sicut infernus viventes et integros quasi descendentes in lacum:
   13 omnem pretiosam substantiam reperiemus, implebimus domos nostras spoliis;
   14 sortem mitte nobiscum, marsupium unum sit omnium nostrum";
   15 fili mi, ne ambules cum eis, prohibe pedem tuum a semitis eorum.
   16 Pedes enim illorum ad malum currunt et festinant, ut effundant sanguinem.
   17 Frustra autem iacitur rete ante oculos pinnatorum.
   18 Ipsique contra sanguinem suum insidiantur et moliuntur fraudes contra animas suas.
   19 Sic semitae omnis ad rapinam intenti: animam ipsius possidentis rapiunt.
   20 Sapientia foris praedicat, in plateis dat vocem suam,
   21 in capite viarum frequentium clamitat, in foribus portarum urbis profert verba sua:
   22 "Usquequo, parvuli, diligitis infantiam, et derisores sibi derisionem cupient, et imprudentes odibunt scientiam?
   23 Convertimini ad correptionem meam; en proferam vobis spiritum meum et ostendam vobis verba mea.
   24 Quia vocavi, et renuistis, extendi manum meam, et non fuit qui aspiceret;
   25 despexistis omne consilium meum et increpationes meas neglexistis.
   26 Ego quoque in interitu vestro ridebo et subsannabo, cum terror vobis advenerit,
   27 cum irruerit ut procella terror, et interitus quasi tempestas ingruerit, quando venerit super vos tribulatio et angustia".
   28 Tunc invocabunt me, et non exaudiam, instanter quaerent me et non invenient me,
   29 eo quod exosam habuerint disciplinam et timorem Domini non elegerint
   30 nec acquieverint consilio meo et despexerint universam correptionem meam.
   31 Comedent igitur fructus viae suae suisque consiliis saturabuntur.
   32 Aversio parvulorum interficiet eos, et securitas stultorum perdet illos.
   33 Qui autem me audierit, absque terrore requiescet et tranquillus erit timore malorum sublato.

King James Version


   1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
   2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
   3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
   4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
   5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
   6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
   7 ¶ The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
   8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
   9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
   10 ¶ My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
   11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
   12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
   13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
   14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
   15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
   16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
   17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
   18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
   19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
   20 ¶ Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
   21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
   22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
   23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
   24 ¶ Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
   25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
   26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
   27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
   28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
   29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
   30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
   31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
   32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
   33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
