Proverbs 1:7; Proverbs 6:30; Proverbs 11:12; Proverbs 13:13; Proverbs 14:21; Proverbs 23:9; Proverbs 23:22; Proverbs 30:17
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.
Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.
Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
