Instruction & Learning
The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
Proverbs 1:8-9Cross Reference: Ephesians 6:1 & Colossians 3:20.
My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
Proverbs 4:20-22Cross Reference: Matthew 11:15
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors. Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man. O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth.
Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.
A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.
Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding. The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge. For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips. That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee. Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down. Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction. Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
Proverbs 28:5Cross Reference: Psalms 92:6, 119:99-100, Isaiah 6:9, 44:18, 1 Cor 2:14, 1 John 2:20, 27
Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
