The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
For gaining wisdom and being instructed; for understanding insightful sayings;
for receiving wise instruction [in] righteousness, justice, and integrity;
for teaching shrewdness to the inexperienced, knowledge and discretion to a young man-
a wise man will listen and increase his learning, and a discerning man will obtain guidance-
for understanding a proverb or a parable, the words of the wise, and their riddles.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
