Knowledge Seeking

Proverbs 1:1-4  
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 1:5-6  
A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:  To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.  

Proverbs 1:7  
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 2:1-5  
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;  So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;  Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.  

Proverbs 8:12  
I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

Proverbs 10:14  
Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

Proverbs 12:1  
Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish.

Proverbs 18:15  
The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.

Proverbs 24:13-14  
My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:  So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.  

Proverbs 25:1-3  
These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.  It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.  The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.  

Solomon wrote 3,000 proverbs (1 Kings 4:32), so this is but a portion. Hezekiah's reign was over 250 years after the death of Solomon. Cross Reference: Deut 29:29, Rom 11:33; Ezra 6:1

Proverbs 28:5  
Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
