Proverbs 1:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The wise by hearing them will advance in learning,
    the intelligent will gain sound guidance,
To comprehend proverb and byword,
    the words of the wise and their riddles.
Fear of the Lord[a] is the beginning of knowledge;
    fools despise wisdom and discipline.


  1. 1:7 Fear of the Lord: primarily a disposition rather than the emotion of fear; reverential awe and respect toward God combined with obedience to God’s will.
