Proverbs 4:1-7 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Parental Advice

Listen, children, to a father’s instruction,
    and be attentive, that you may gain[a] insight;
for I give you good precepts:
    do not forsake my teaching.
When I was a son with my father,
    tender, and my mother’s favorite,
he taught me, and said to me,
“Let your heart hold fast my words;
    keep my commandments, and live.
Get wisdom; get insight: do not forget, nor turn away
    from the words of my mouth.
Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
    love her, and she will guard you.
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
    and whatever else you get, get insight.
