Chapter 1[edit]

1 These are Solomon's proverbs, the son of David and king of Israel:

2 for attaining wisdom and teaching;

3 for learning prudence— doing what is right;

4 for informing the uninformed; for guiding the young and unexperienced;

5 also for those who are already wise;

6 and for understanding words of wisdom.


7 A revering attitude toward the LORD is the beginning of true knowledge,

But fools hate knowledge of prudence and wisdom.


8 Children, listen to the teaching of your parents.

9 Their instruction is very valuable for you, a treasure.


10 Dear reader, if sinful men seem alluring to you,

Do not submit to their false authority.

11 If they say to you, "Come, join us

and go hunting for innocent souls.

12 We can devour their innocence

In wonderful splendor.

13 We can go in to their houses

And take all their valuable items.

14 Then we will divide up the loot among us all."
