The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel:
To know wisdom and instruction; To discern the words of understanding;
To receive instruction in wise dealing, In righteousness, justice, and equity;
To give prudence to the simple, Knowledge and discretion to the young man:
That the wise man may hear, and increase in learning; That the man of understanding may attain to sound counsel:
To understand a proverb, and parables, The words and riddles of the wise.
