Proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:
For knowing wisdom and instruction, For understanding sayings of intelligence,
For receiving the instruction of wisdom, Righteousness, judgment, and uprightness,
For giving to simple ones -- prudence, To a youth -- knowledge and discretion.
(The wise doth hear and increaseth learning, And the intelligent doth obtain counsels.)
For understanding a proverb and its sweetness, Words of the wise and their acute sayings.
Fear of Jehovah [is] a beginning of knowledge, Wisdom and instruction fools have despised!
