The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom
Chapters 7 and 8
The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the LORD, and humility comes before honor.
Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the LORD evil is avoided.
2 Corinthians 5:11
Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience.
