Proverbs 1:1-7 CJB

1 The proverbs of Shlomo the son of David, king of Isra'el,
2 are for learning about wisdom and discipline; for understanding words expressing deep insight;
3 for gaining an intelligently disciplined life, doing what is right, just and fair;
4 for endowing with caution those who don't think and the young person with knowledge and discretion.
5 Someone who is already wise will hear and learn still more; someone who already understands will gain the ability to counsel well;
6 he will understand proverbs, obscure expressions, the sayings and riddles of the wise.
7 The fear of ADONAI is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
