“¶ The feare of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fooles despise wisedome and instruction.”
King James Version (KJV)
4. To giue subtiltie to the simple, to the yong man knowledge and discretion. 5. A wise man wil heare, and wil increase learning: and a man of vnderstanding shall attaine vnto wise counsels: 6. To vnderstand a prouerbe, and the interpretation; the wordes of the wise, and their darke sayings. 7. ¶ The feare of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fooles despise wisedome and instruction. 8. My sonne, heare the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. 9. For they shall be an ornament of grace vnto thy head, and chaines about thy necke. 10. ¶ My sonne, if sinners entise thee, consent thou not.
