7 hThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.
29 Because they chated knowledge
and ndid not choose the fear of the Lord,
3 yes, if you call out for insight
and raise your voice wfor understanding,
4 if you seek it like xsilver
and search for it as for yhidden treasures,
5 then zyou will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
7 mBe not wise in your own eyes;
nfear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
fPride and arrogance and the way of evil
and gperverted speech I hate.
10 pThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and qthe knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
27 qThe fear of the Lord prolongs life,
rbut the years of the wicked will be short.
2 Whoever hwalks in uprightness fears the Lord,
but he who is idevious in his ways despises him.
16 bBetter is a little with the fear of the Lord
than great treasure and trouble with it.
33 jThe fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom,
and khumility comes before honor.
6 By tsteadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
23 The fear of the Lord lleads to life,
and whoever has it rests msatisfied;
he will nnot be visited by harm.
4 The reward for humility and fear of the Lord
17 Let not your heart tenvy sinners,
but continue in uthe fear of the Lord all the day.
18 Surely vthere is a future,
and your whope will not be cut off.
19 Hear, my son, and xbe wise,
and ydirect your heart in the way.
21 My son, zfear the Lord and the king,
and do not join with those who do otherwise,
5 Evil men ido not understand justice,
but those who seek the Lord junderstand it completely.
but whoever ahardens his heart will fall into calamity.
25 iThe fear of man lays a snare,
but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.
26 Many jseek the face of a ruler,
but it is from the Lord that a man kgets justice.
