Proverbs 1:1-7 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible

Purpose

1 These are the proverbs of Solomon. He was the son of David and the king of Israel. 2 Proverbs teach you wisdom and train you. They help you understand wise sayings. 3 They provide you with training and help you live wisely. They lead to what is right and honest and fair. 4 They give understanding to childish people. They give knowledge and good sense to those who are young. 5 Let wise people listen and add to what they have learned. Let those who understand what is right get guidance. 6 What I'm teaching also helps you understand proverbs and stories. It helps you understand the sayings and riddles of those who are wise.

Main Point

7 If you really want to gain knowledge, you must begin by having respect for the Lord. But foolish people hate wisdom and training.
