The Beginning Of Knowledge

    The Beginning Of Knowledge

    Proverbs Chapter 1 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward

    Proverbs 1
    King James Version

    The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

    To know wisdom and instruction;
    to perceive the words of understanding;​
    3 To receive the instruction of wisdom,
    justice, and judgment, and equity;​
    4 To give subtilty to the simple,
    to the young man knowledge and discretion.​
    5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning;
    and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:​
    6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation;
    the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.​
    7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:
    but fools despise wisdom and instruction.​

    Shun Evil Counsel

    My son, hear the instruction of thy father,
    and forsake not the law of thy mother:​
    9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head,
    and chains about thy neck.​

    10 My son, if sinners entice thee,
    consent thou not.​
    11 If they say, Come with us,
    let us lay wait for blood,
    let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:​
    12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave;
    and whole, as those that go down into the pit:​
    13 We shall find all precious substance,
    we shall fill our houses with spoil:​
    14 Cast in thy lot among us;
    let us all have one purse:​
    15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them;
    refrain thy foot from their path:​
    16 For their feet run to evil,
    and make haste to shed blood.​
    17 Surely in vain the net is spread
    in the sight of any bird.​
    18 And they lay wait for their own blood;
    they lurk privily for their own lives.​
    19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain;
    which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.​

    The Call Of Wisdom

    Wisdom crieth without;
    she uttereth her voice in the streets:​
    21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse,
    in the openings of the gates: in the city
    she uttereth her words, saying,​
    22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity?
    and the scorners delight in their scorning,
    and fools hate knowledge?​
    23 Turn you at my reproof:
    behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you,
    I will make known my words unto you.​
    24 Because I have called, and ye refused;
    I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;​
    25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel,
    and would none of my reproof:​
    26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
    I will mock when your fear cometh;​
    27 When your fear cometh as desolation,
    and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind;
    when distress and anguish cometh upon you.​

    28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer;
    they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:​
    29 For that they hated knowledge,
    and did not choose the fear of the Lord:​
    30 They would none of my counsel:
    they despised all my reproof.​
    31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way,
    and be filled with their own devices.​
    32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them,
    and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.​
    33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely,
    and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
    The Usefulness Of Proverbs

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
