Proverbs 1:1-6 "The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel: 2 to know wisdom and instruction;     to discern the words of understanding; 3 to receive instruction in wise dealing,     in righteousness, justice, and equity; 4 to give prudence to the simple,     knowledge and discretion to the young man: 5 that the wise man may hear, and increase in learning;     that the man of understanding may attain to sound counsel: 6 to understand a proverb and parables,     the words and riddles of the wise."
