Proverbs 1

New International Version (NIV)

Purpose and Theme

Image

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

for gaining wisdom and instruction;
    for understanding words of insight;
for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
    doing what is right and just and fair;
for giving prudence to those who are simple,[a]
    knowledge and discretion to the young—
let the wise listen and add to their learning,
    and let the discerning get guidance—
for understanding proverbs and parables,
    the sayings and riddles of the wise.[b]

Image

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
    but fools[c] despise wisdom and instruction.
