King Solomon, remixed
Her ways are beautiful ways, and all her paths are peaceable.
Therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth to the everlasting kingdom.
For wisdom opened the mouth of the dumb, and made the tongues of infants eloquent.
Hear, for I will speak of great things: and my lips shall be opened to preach right
One is as it were rich, when he hath nothing.
Give me neither beggary nor riches. Give me only the necessaries of life.
Be diligent to know the countenance of thy cattle, and consider thy own flocks.
Practice not evil against thy friend, when he hath confidence in thee.
A man amiable in society shall be more friendly than a brother.
I love them that love me, and they that in the early morning watch for me, shall find me.
For I look out of the window of my house through the lattice.
The natures of living creatures, and rage of wild beasts, the force of winds, and reasonings of men, the diversities of plants, and the virtues of roots, and all such things as are hid and not forseen, I have learned: for wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me.
I was set up from eternity, and of old before the earth was made.
The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his ways, before he made anything from the beginning.
I was with him forming all things, and was delighted every day, playing before him at all times.
For all men have one entrance into life, and the like going out.
The good man leaveth heirs, sons, and grandsons (and granddaughters)
Children's children are the crown of old men.
He that hath found a good wife, hath found a good thing, and shall receive a pleasure from the Lord.
She will render him good, and not evil, all the days of her life.
The steps of man are guided by the Lord: but who is the man that can understand his own way?
The meadows are open and the green herbs have appeared and the hay is gathered out of the mountains.
If thou sleep, thou shalt not fear: thou shalt rest, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
