Proverbs 1 (KJV)

 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 (inadequacy) 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:




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




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




23 Turn you at my reproof (disapproval): behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But ye have set at nought (no purpose) all my counsel, and would none of my reproof (disapproval):
26 I also will laugh at your calamity (tragedy); I will mock (make fun of) when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation (emptiness, destruction), and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish (severe mental or physical pain)cometh upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:
30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof (disapproval).
31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
33 But whoso hearkeneth (listen) unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.




29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:




33 But whoso hearkeneth (listens) unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
