Is Wisdom in Proverbs 8, the Holy Spirit?


To All,

Is Wisdom in Proverbs 8, the Holy Spirit?

Read very carefully Proverbs 8 and don't get hung up on the pronouns (he/she). Let us look for some obvious words attributed to the Holy Spirit.

[1] Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her {{{voice}}}?
[2] She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
[3] She {{{crieth at the gates}}}, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.
[4] Unto you, O men, I call; and {{{my voice is to the sons of man}}}.
[5] O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
[6] Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the {{{opening of my lips shall be right things}}}.
[7] For {{{my mouth shall speak truth}}}; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
[8] All {{{the words of my mouth are in righteousness}}}; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
[9] They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
[10] {{{Receive my instruction}}}, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
[11] For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
[12] I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
[13] The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
[14] {{{Counsel is mine}}}, and sound wisdom: {{{I am understanding}}}; {{{I have strength}}}.
[15] By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
[16] By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.
[17] I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
[18] Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
[19] {{{My fruit}}} is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
[20] I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
[21] That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
[22] The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
[23] I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
[24] When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
[25] Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
[26] While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
[27] {{{When he prepared the heavens, I was there}}}: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
[28] When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
[29] When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
[30] Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;[31] Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
[32] Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
[33] {{{Hear instruction}}}, and be wise, and refuse it not.
[34] {{{Blessed is the man that heareth me}}}, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
[35] For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
[36] But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

Is Wisdom the Holy Spirit?

Let us first go to the Old Testament the first two times wisdom is spoken of:

[3] And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled {{{with the spirit of wisdom}}}, that they may make Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.
[3] And I have filled him {{{with the spirit of God}}}, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

Now let us go to the New Testament:

[24] But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the {{{power of God, and the wisdom of God}}}.

Holy men of God (like Paul) spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Paul says in 1 Cor. 2:7 "But we speak the wisdom of God".

[21] ...but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

[7] {{{But we speak the wisdom of God}}} in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Man's wisdom comes from what man teaches but God's wisdom comes from what the Holy Ghost teaches... therefore the spirit of wisdom, God's spirit, and wisdom in Proverbs 8 is the Holy Spirit.

[13] Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

The voice of wisdom (Prov. 8) would bring forth the word of wisdom(1 Cor. 12:8), which is given by the Spirit...(1 Cor. 12:8).

[8] For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit

Another clue:

Proverbs 8.
[12] I wisdom dwell with prudence
[8] Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

Is Wisdom the "Spirit of Truth"?

Proverbs 8:

"my mouth shall speak truth"

[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he {{{will guide you into all truth}}}: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
