1-5Good friend, take to heart what I’m telling you;collect my counsels and guard them with your life.Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom;set your heart on a life of Understanding.That’s right—if you make Insight your priority,and won’t take no for an answer,Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold,like an adventurer on a treasure hunt,Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-God will be yours;you’ll have come upon the Knowledge of God.

Read Proverbs 2
