The Book of Proverbs was written by King Solomon. It gives words of wisdom, understanding, and lifelong revelation on how to live as a Righteous Person. It challenges ideas of foolishness, lust, dishonesty, and laziness.
Wisdom is a valuable, feminine spirit.
Wisdom cries without; she utters her voice in the streets: She cries in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she utters her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my Ruach unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 1:20-23 את CEPHER
Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things you can desire are not to be compared unto her.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 3:13-15 את CEPHER
My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 8:19 את CEPHER
By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 8:15-16 את CEPHER
Without Wisdom, you are bound to fall into the consequences of folly.
Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkens unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 1:31-33 את CEPHER

For the ways of man are before the eyes of Yahuah, and he ponders all his goings. His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be held with the cords of his sins. He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 5:21-23 את CEPHER
He that diligently seeks good procures favor: but he that seeks mischief, it shall come unto him.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 11:27 את CEPHER
When you have wisdom, you can increase your discernment.
When wisdom enters into your heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto your soul; Discretion shall guard you, understanding shall keep you: To deliver you from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaks froward things; MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 2:10-12 את CEPHER
Utilize and converse with YAH in all things. It will be to your benefit. Increased relationship = increased trust.
Trust in El-Yahuah with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 3:5-6 את CEPHER
Bow down your ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart unto my knowledge. For it is a pleasant thing if you guard them within you; they shall withal be fitted in your lips. That your trust may be in Yahuah, I have made known to you this day, even to you. Have not I written to you excellent things in counsels and knowledge,
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 22:17-20 את CEPHER
To find wisdom is to fear YAHUAH and honor his commandments.
The fear of Yahuah is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 1:7 את CEPHER
MY son, if you will receive my words, and hide my commandments with you; So that you incline your ear unto wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; Yea, if you cry after knowledge, and lift up your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hid treasures; Then shall you understand the fear of Yahuah, and find the knowledge of Elohiym.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 2:1-5 את CEPHER
YAH founded the Earth through wisdom and understanding.
Yahuah by wisdom has founded the earth; by understanding has he established the heavens.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 3:19 את CEPHER
Yahuah possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. 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 was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 8:22-27 את CEPHER
When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 8:28-30 את CEPHER
YAH gives his secrets and his wisdom to his saints.
For the froward is abomination to Yahuah: but his secret is with the yashariym.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 3:32 את CEPHER
Poverty comes from idleness and laziness.
How long will you sleep, O sluggard? when will you arise out of your sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall your poverty come as one that travels, and your want as an armed man.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 6:9-11 את CEPHER
He becomes poor that deals with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent makes rich. He that gathers in summer is a wise son: but he that sleeps in harvest is a son that causes shame.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 10:4-5 את CEPHER
As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 10:26 את CEPHER
God hates things. Avoid them.
These six things Yahuah hates: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren.

A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back. Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you also be like unto him. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit. He that sends a message by the hand of a fool cuts off the feet, and drinks damage. The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools. As he that binds a stone in a sling, so is he that gives honor to a fool.
MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 26:3-8 את CEPHER
As a thorn goes up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools. The great Elohiym that formed all things both rewards the fool, and rewards transgressors. As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly.

Righteousness establishes a nation.
Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
