Proverbs 1:4-14 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
4 To give 1prudence to the anaive, To the youth 2knowledge and discretion, 5 A wise man will hear and 3increase in learning, And a 4man of understanding will acquire wise counsel, 6 To understand a proverb and a figure, The words of the wise and their 5riddles. 7 6The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.

The Enticement of Sinners

8 7Hear, my son, your father's instruction And 8do not forsake your mother's teaching; 9 Indeed, they are a 9graceful wreath to your head And b10ornaments about your neck. 10 My son, if sinners 11entice you, 12Do not consent. 11 If they say, "Come with us, Let us 13lie in wait for blood, Let us 14ambush the innocent without cause; 12 Let us 15swallow them alive like Sheol, Even whole, as those who 16go down to the pit; 13 We will find all kinds of precious wealth, We will fill our houses with spoil; 14 Throw in your lot cwith us, We shall all have one purse,"
