Proverbs 1:1-7, 20-23

Proverbs

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

Prologue


2 For learning about wisdom and instruction,
   for understanding words of insight,
3 for gaining instruction in wise dealing,
   righteousness, justice, and equity;
4 to teach shrewdness to the simple,
   knowledge and prudence to the young—
5 let the wise also hear and gain in learning,
   and the discerning acquire skill,
6 to understand a proverb and a figure,
   the words of the wise and their riddles.


7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
   fools despise wisdom and instruction.

The Call of Wisdom


20 Wisdom cries out in the street;
   in the squares she raises her voice.
21 At the busiest corner she cries out;
   at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:
22 ‘How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple?
How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing
   and fools hate knowledge?
23 Give heed to my reproof;
I will pour out my thoughts to you;
   I will make my words known to you.
