The wise lay up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool brings ruin near.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.
How much better to get wisdom than gold! To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
The righteous who walks in his integrity— blessed are his children after him!
For the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.
