Proverbs 8:34-36 Blessed is the man who hears me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my door posts. For whoever finds me finds life, and will obtain favor from Yahweh. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death.” Psalm 84: 11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly. 12 Yahweh of Armies, blessed is the man who trusts in you. 1 John 5:5 Now who is the one overcoming the world, except the one believing that Jesus is the Son of God?

The Jehovah’s Witnesses Wrong Teaching of Proverbs 8:22 - 30!

Proverbs 8:22 - 30!

Jehovah Witnesses own translation reads: 
Jehovah (produced) me as the beginning of his way, The earliest of his achievements of long ago. Proverbs 8:22

Proverbs 8:22

Jehovah Witnesses say, believe, and teach Proverbs 8:22 proves Jesus was (produced) FIRST and at the beginning of GOD's creation.

Proverbs 8:30
New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (Study Edition)
Then I was beside him as a master worker. I was the one he was especially fond of+ day by day; I rejoiced before him all the time;

And also according to them Proverbs 8:30 proves 
GOD was working THROUGH Jesus creating all things, with Jesus as His craftsman by GOD's side as His Mediator.

Are The Jehovah Witnesses Wrong or Right?

The Quick Biblical Facts:

The Word of GOD is full of Symbolic meanings, Figures of Speech, Metaphors, Idioms, Parables and Allegories.

Just as Jesus would not speak to them without parables Mark 4:34

Just as Jesus spoke in allegories; John 16:25 Berean Literal Bible
I have spoken these things to you in allegories; an hour is coming when I will speak to you no more in allegories, but I will report to you plainly concerning the Father.

Just as when Jesus said (I am) in John 8:58, meaning (I am) the chosen one, (I am) the Messiah, (I am) the Christ, which was an (IDIOM), meaning I am the one, and never means I am GOD!

The Dictionary Definitions from Oxford Languages tells us:
An idiom is a phrase or expression that typically presents a figurative, non-literal meaning attached to the phrase.

Just as when Jesus said (I came down from heaven John 6:38), Jesus was talking in allegories John 16:25.

Just as when Jesus said: I am the bread of life John 6:35, and yet we all know Jesus was not the literal bread we eat.

Just as when Jesus said in: John 6:56 
The one eating My flesh and drinking My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so also the one feeding on Me, he also will live because of Me. 58 This is the bread having come down from heaven, not as the fathers ate and died. The one eating this bread will live to the age.”

We all know Jesus was not literally asking people to eat Him and then drink His blood, but was a metaphor, a figure of speech.

The Bible's symbolic meanings:

The figures of speech, the Metaphors, the idioms, the Parables and the allegories, is divine proof of how we know the Holy Bible is truly inspired by The One True Almighty GOD, because of the skilful words, phrases, and construction's, so often used by our Heavenly Father's divine intervention He creates to portray and contain hidden secrets, for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

We humans also speak sometimes in (IDIOMS), like when we give our car or boat a name, or call it a He or She, and yet we all know this is simply a figure of speech, and not a real person.

We all know Jesus was not, and still is not a (her), or a (she), or a (woman), or a lady, but was A MAN, as He only ever taught as we read in John 8:40. Can we agree?

Please note what we read in Proverbs 8: 1 -
Doesn't wisdom cry out? Doesn't understanding raise her voice? 
2 On the top of high places by the way, where the paths meet, she stands. 
3 Beside the gates, at the entry of the city, at the entry doors, she cries aloud. 
We clearly see how Proverbs 8 is a personification of GOD's (wisdom) as a woman: (her) voice, (she) cries aloud. 
personification |pəˌsɒnɪfɪˈkeɪʃ(ə)n|

So as Jesus was a MAN, He is obviously not Lady Wisdom in Proverbs 8.

The truth is, when we truly understand the teachings of GODS word, we will discover how there is not a single word throughout the whole Bible or by GOD or Jesus saying Jesus was (produced) before all creation, or that Jesus was WITH GOD and was the craftsman by his side at the Genesis creation.

Also (Wisdom) In the old testament is never a second person.

Just as the word of GOD In the old testament was never a second person, until Jesus was born, becoming the (Wisdom) and WORD of GOD, when: Jesus continued to advance in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. Luke 2:52

Note there in Luke 2:52 how: Jesus continued to (advance) in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

The Greek word is (prokoptó) for advance and in the Strong's means: brushwood), I advance, progress, make progress.

If Jesus was (produced) FIRST and at the beginning of GOD's creation, and that GOD created all things, with Jesus as His craftsman and Mediator, then Jesus would ALREADY HAVE ALL wisdom and stature, and would NOT need to advance, progress, make progress in favor with God and men.

And Luke 2:52 also reveals a serous problem for those who believe Jesus is GOD.

My Conclusion!

This must conclude Proverbs 8 is a personification, embodiment, incarnation, essence, type, symbol, picture, model, symbolisation, exemplification, exemplar, image, representation, likeness, manifestation.
of GOD's (wisdom) as a woman: (her) voice, (she) cries aloud. 

My own research reveals how Proverbs 8:22 - 30 is NOT referring to a second person who was Jesus, who was (produced) and was WITH GOD before creation, as many believe is Jesus, but is instead SUPER poetry by King Solomon and is INSTEAD referring to a personification of  the (wisdom of God), personified as a woman.
