Quick Overview

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10).

The book of Proverbs was written to teach us how to live everything we learned in the books of Moses and in the prophets. Through metaphor, humor and ironies, rhythms and riddles, God speaks the language of the men and women who live in the concrete world. According to Solomon, “to know Wisdom” means, first of all, to have a personal relationship with God. In other words, “to know Wisdom” means “to know God.” 

It is interesting to note that the language used here echoes the language of the story of Solomon when he asked God for wisdom. The object of his request to God was, “Give to your servant an understanding heart to…discern between good and evil” (1 Kings 3:9, NKJV). Wisdom is thus defined as the capacity “to discern,” “to distinguish” between good and evil. This is a wisdom that can only be obtained as a gift from God.
