Passage: Proverbs 1:1–1:7

Proverbs 1:1-7

The Beginning of Knowledge

[1] The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:

    [2] To know wisdom and instruction,

        to understand words of insight, 

    [3] to receive instruction in wise dealing,

        in righteousness, justice, and equity; 

    [4] to give prudence to the simple,

        knowledge and discretion to the youth—

    [5] Let the wise hear and increase in learning,

        and the one who understands obtain guidance, 

    [6] to understand a proverb and a saying,

        the words of the wise and their riddles.

[7] The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge;

        fools despise wisdom and instruction.
