Geneva Study Bible
   1: Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it.
   2: Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.
   3: He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.
   4: The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men.
   5: As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.
   6: The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.
   7: There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen:
   8: The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.
   9: He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.
   10: He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.
   11: He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.
   12: But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
   13: Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.
   14: The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.
   15: It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.
   16: It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.
   17: The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.
   18: No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.
   19: The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
   20: Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
   21: Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
   22: Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
   23: God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
   24: For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;
   25: To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
   26: When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
   27: Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
   28: And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
