These are the wise words of Solomon son of David, king of Israel.
They teach wisdom and self-control;
they will help you understand wise words.
They will teach you how to be wise and self-controlled
and will teach you to do what is honest and fair and right.
They make the uneducated wise
and give knowledge and sense to the young.
Wise people can also listen and learn;
even they can find good advice in these words.
Then anyone can understand wise words and stories,
the words of the wise and their riddles.
Knowledge begins with respect for the Lord,
but fools hate wisdom and discipline. (NCV)
