Proverbs 1

1  The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

2  To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;

3  To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;

4  To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

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; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

7  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

8  My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

9  For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

10  My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
