Let the wise hear and eincrease in learning,

and the one who understands obtain guidance,


15  yThe way of a fool is right in his own eyes,

but a wise man listens to advice.


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.


13  Whoever jdespises kthe word1 brings destruction on himself,

but he who reveres the commandment2 will be lrewarded.


An evildoer listens to wicked lips,

and a liar gives ear to a mischievous tongue.


10  A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding

than a hundred blows into a fool.


18  Whoever yisolates himself seeks his own desire;

he breaks out against all sound judgment.

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,

but only zin expressing his opinion.


13  If one gives an answer obefore he hears,

it is his folly and shame.


The purpose in a man's heart is like gdeep water,

but a man of understanding will draw it out.


12  Apply your heart to instruction

and your ear to words of knowledge.
