The Beginning of Knowledge

Proverbs 1:1–6 (ESV)

1 The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:

To know wisdom and instruction,

to understand words of insight,

to receive instruction in wise dealing,

in righteousness, justice, and equity;

to give prudence to the simple,

knowledge and discretion to the youth—

Let the wise hear and increase in learning,

and the one who understands obtain guidance,

to understand a proverb and a saying,

the words of the wise and their riddles.

Proverbs 1:7 (ESV)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;

fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:24=27 (ESV)

24  Because I have called and you refused to listen,

have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,

25  because you have ignored all my counsel

and would have none of my reproof,

26  I also will laugh at your calamity;

I will mock when terror strikes you,

27  when terror strikes you like a storm

and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,

when distress and anguish come upon you.

Proverbs 1:29–31 (ESV)

29  Because they hated knowledge

and did not choose the fear of the Lord,

30  would have none of my counsel

and despised all my reproof,

31  therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way,

and have their fill of their own devices.
