The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding,
To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity;
To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion--
A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
