Proverbs 1:1-2, 23
The proverbs [truths obscurely expressed, maxims and parables] of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
That people may know skill and godly wisdom and instruction, discern and comprehend the words of understanding and insight.
If you will turn [repent] and give heed to my reproof, behold, I [Wisdom], will pour out my spirit upon you, I will make My words known to you. [Isaiah 11: 2; Ephesians 1:17-20]. – Amplified Bible.
Over the door of the school of Plato these words were written in Greek, “Let no one enter who is not a geometrician.”
But Solomon opens wide the doors of his Proverbs with a special message of welcome to the unlearned, the simple, the foolish, the young, and even to the wise, that all “may increase in learning.”
Read “the Wisdom of God” [v23] instead of “Wisdom” and see the wonderful power of this book.
The Apostle Paul called Christ “the Wisdom of God…..in Whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” [1 Cor. 1:24; Col. 2:3.]
