1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
28:1 ¶ Though there is, for silver, a vein, and a place for the gold they refine;
28:2 Iron, out of the ore, is taken, and, stone, poureth out copper;
28:3 An end, hath one set to the darkness, and, into every extremity, is, he, making search, for the stone of darkness and death-shade;
28:4 He hath sunken a shaft, away from the inhabitants; Places forsaken by the foot, they hang down, away from men, sway to and fro;
28:5 As for the earth, out of it, cometh forth bread, and, under it, is upturned, as it were fire;
28:6 The place of sapphires, are the stones thereof, and it hath, nuggets of gold:
28:7 A path, the vulture hath not discerned, nor hath the eye of the hawk scanned it;
28:8 Ravenous beasts have not made a track thereof, neither hath the lion marched thereon:
28:9 Upon the flint, hath he thrust forth his hand, He hath turned up mountains by the roots;
28:10 Among the rocks, hath he cut open streams, and, every precious thing, hath his eye seen:
28:11 From trickling, he restraineth, rivers, and, some hidden thing, is he bringing out to light.
28:12 Yet where can, Wisdom, be found? And where is the place of understanding?
28:13 Mortal knoweth not the way thereof, neither can it be found in the land of the living;
28:14 ¶ The resounding deep, hath said, It is not in me! And, the sea, hath said, It is not with me!
28:15 Pure gold cannot be given in its stead, neither can silver he weighed as the value thereof;
28:16 It cannot be put into the scales against the gold of Ophir, with costly onyx, or sapphire;
28:17 Neither gold nor crystal can compare with it, nor can, the exchange thereof, be a vessel of pure gold,
28:18 Coral or crystal, cannot be mentioned, Yea, a possession, is wisdom, above red coral;
28:19 The topaz of Ethiopia cannot compare with it, Against purest gold, can it not be weighed.
28:20 ¶ Whence then cometh, wisdom? And where is the place of understanding?
28:21 Seeing it hath been hid from the eyes of every living thing, and, from the bird of the heavens, hath it been concealed?
28:22 Destruction and death, have said, With our ears, have we heard the report thereof!
28:23 GOD, understandeth the way thereof, and, he, discerneth the place thereof;
28:24 For, he, unto the ends of the earth, directeth his look, under all the heavens, he seeth;
28:25 Making, for the wind, a weight, and, the waters, he proved by measure,
28:26 When he made, for the rain, a decree, and a way for the lightning of thunders,
28:27 Then, saw he it, and declared it, He settled it, yea also he searched it out;
28:28 And said to the son of earth, Lo! the reverence of the Lord, that, is wisdom, and, to avoid evil, is understanding.
