Here is wisdom that will benefit you in many ways.
We start by looking at the purpose of Proverbs.
1 The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
2 for attaining wisdom and discipline;
for understanding words of insight;
3 for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life,
doing what is right and just and fair;
4 for giving prudence to the simple,knowledge and discretion to the young?
5 let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance?
6 for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.
7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
