    A true believer obeys out of "Fear of the Lord." Without the Fear of the Lord there is no love.
    Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, also found in the book of Psalms. If you do not have Fear of the Lord, you have no Godly wisdom. God is wisdom.

    I read the statements and I would like to add a little clarity to some. God does want His children to fear Him. in a manner that you are aware of His power. However, He wants His children to obey out of love. Proverb gives us steps to take that leads to sound wisdom from on High. Veegee

    God is a God that wants us to love Him and not fear Him.Just like man's law you must obey. With disobedience comes consequences.God want us to love and obey him.That was the reason God came in the form of man, Jesus Christ to give us an example that we can see and feel. I don't fear God but I do fear getting on His bad side.I don't fear the police either. Bad side not for me. My Father is for me!

    Our God is a holy God-Consuming fire-Creator of all things-He killeth and Maketh alive- The First and the last-Provider-Great King! Shall we not fear before him? Knowing his statues and commandments we ought to fear enough to do them. For those who don't wish to learn of God and his statutes refuse wisdom and love simplicity. In their time of trouble they are w/o comfort and remedy!

    Why is it that most people want to remain distant , aganist God most people turn that way the world of people is a ugly place unless you truly meet Gods people who want to obey him and understand what he is saying in his word . God will always make his Spirit known to us how blessed are we , we have the kingdom of God inside us .

    To fear God is to have a reverential Trust in Him : to stand in Awe of His Greatness ! to know that in disobedience to Him will cost Greater than what you want : I want to know my Lord God : A fool says that there is no God : fools despise knowledge of God for it is foolishness to them. I also want to be instructed of my Lord from His word.
  • Davie Jere
    Fear in this case can also be reffered to respect. whom you respect you fear and whom you fear you respect. Amen
  • Brandy crowley
    my commnet is that I think that the bible tells us the truth about god wants us to do and also tells us to pray for forgiveness.
  • Marie hoadley
    Proverbs is a great book and worth its wisdom in gold better then gold, we should live by this book.
  • Doris
    Even with the wisdom of Solomon man can lose his way, focus on Jesus. We are children of the King, we must do HIS will and we are told why in HIS word. The Bible is our moral compass on how to live and who to live for. We must follow the instruction of the Holy Spirit and watch our thoughts, guarding our minds from being captive to what is negative. Allow the Holy Spirit to remain on the Throne!

    Shelly, The 1611 King James translation, which took 7 years to translate is the tried Word of God. It may be profitable for you to diligently study Proverbs 1 again and Ecclesiasticus Chapter 30 in the Apocrypha. I pray God you receive His Spirit to the fullest and may He bless you richly in His instruction, His Word! Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Ecclesiastes 8:4 Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou? Proverbs 8:33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
  • Shelly
    I think some of Proverbs was mistranslated. The part where it said spare not the rod and spoil the child. It should said say spare not the rod or method of correction or the child will be of no good. Some people misunderstand that. If you are a christian you will teach your child in the right manner. Some kids respond differently than others. That is why we have to be careful about the method.
  • Angela
    Proverbs gives you the knowledge to help others understand why you believe what you do, behave the way you do, and gives you the strength to walk away for that which is not good for you.
  • Kim
    I just started reading Proverbs because I want a better understanding of it for myself.
  • Is a book of advice and a watch word
    It is very clear to understand
  • Solomon Did Not Disappoint The Name Of His Father. He Built On The Fame And Wealth Of His Father And Became Even Greater Than His Father
  • Roddy
    Romans 19:17 Faith comes from Hearing, and hearing by the word of God. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 2Timothy 3:16
  • Lee
    Scripture is necessary for wisdom. If we dont read then how can we know how to live? Proverbs instruct all on how to live rightly in Gods eyes.
  • Marilyn Bowman
    Proverbs 1 is a word of wisdom. Anyone that have lack let him ask of God. Wisdom is what we all need. We need to know when where, and how to use wisdom.
  • Ngao. for verse 10
    don't be moved by wrong luring pears to do things that are not of God's gratification.
  • for you to know everything, even the dark saying and their interpretation,the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom
  • Razzaq masih

  • Temosho
    proverbs chapter one is one of the scriptures every Christian must be familiar with,it explains how good it is to have wisdom and again explains wisdom.
  • Janet Dixon
    If we are obedient to the word of God and help our children to appreciate the truth that is written in His words, then no doubt we will have a fruitful generation. If we do otherwise we will have a lost generation.
  • Salomao for verse 2
    Kathryn your case is not strange, It seems God walks always in a different way of that of us. But I believe the most important thing is to seek every time to understand his will.And listen and obey to the word of God throygh heart and not through mind. God bless you
