Proverbs 1:7 . . . Where Knowledge Begins! "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline."
So then, if the beginning of knowledge starts with God, how many knowledgeable people really exist? It's just a question the Gatekeeper asks. Respect God, that's simple, and you'll receive knowledge. No one wants to be a fool.
Proverbs 1:8 . . . If parents have been that good and wise example . . . "Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching." Lady Gatekeeper is very fond of the latter part of this verse.
Proverbs 1:9 . . . "Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head and ornaments about your neck." (NASB)
A Snippet From the EasyEnglish Commentary:
In Solomon’s time, both parents educated their children. It is good when children can learn from both parents.We should listen to wisdom. Wisdom is beautiful, and it is valuable. To possess it is like a crown on the head. Or, it is like a gold chain round the neck. To obtain wisdom, we must study. And we need discipline. We cannot become wise quickly. But wisdom will improve our lives.
