Proverbs 1:5-7 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
5 Let wise people listen and add to what they have learned.
Let those who understand what is right get guidance.
6 What I’m teaching also helps you understand proverbs and stories.
It helps you understand the sayings and riddles of those who are wise.
7 If you really want to gain knowledge, you must begin by having respect for the Lord.
But foolish people hate wisdom and instruction.

the sayings and riddles of the wise.

but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
