Proverbs 1:7; Proverbs 8:33; Proverbs 12:1; Proverbs 13:1; Proverbs 13:10; Proverbs 15:5; Proverbs 15:31; Proverbs 19:20; Proverbs 29:15

hThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;

fools despise wisdom and instruction.

33  nHear instruction and be wise,

and do not neglect it.

12  Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,

but he who zhates reproof is astupid.

13  A wise son hears his father’s instruction,

but qa scoffer does not listen to rebuke.

10  fBy insolence comes nothing but strife,

but with those who take advice is wisdom.

kA fool ldespises his father’s instruction,

but mwhoever heeds reproof is prudent.

31  eThe ear that listens to flife-giving reproof

will dwell among the wise.

20  Listen to advice and accept instruction,

that you may gain wisdom in hthe future.

15  vThe rod and reproof give wisdom,

but a child left to himself wbrings shame to his mother.
