1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.b
5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation;c the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
7 The fear of the LORD is the beginningd of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
