1 The Proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
2 to know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
3 to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, judgment, and equity;
4 to give subtlety to the simple, and to the young man knowledge and discretion.
5 A wise man will hear and will increase learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsel
6 to understand a proverb and the interpretation, the words of the wise and their dark sayings.
7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
