The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge [#FearOfTheLord #BeginningOfKnowledge]
1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
2 To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
3 To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
4 To give prudence to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
5 A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
6 To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their riddles.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
The fear of the Lord, worshipping Him and regarding Him as truly awesome is the beginning of knowledge and the preeminent part of knowledge, its starting point and its essence.
