Thoughts on Proverbs 1:1-7
Here are some “similar” words used in these few verses. It must be significant that they used a particular word over another. How is one word different from the other? I think a study of the original text is important.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Proverbs 1:7 ESV
As I start my journey through Proverbs, this verse should be at the foundation. The proverbs are meaningless without the fear of the Lord.
