Proverbs 9

Proverbs 9:10-11.

“Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life.” (NLT).

“The beginning of wisdom is fear of the Lord, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through me your days will increase, and years be added to your life.” (Tanakh).

“Skilled living gets its start in the Fear-of-God, insight into life from knowing a Holy God. It is through me, Lady Wisdom, that your life depends, and the years of your life ripen.” (Message).

The starting point for acquiring wisdom is to be consumed with awe as you worship Yahweh-God. To receive the revelation of the Holy One, you must come to the One who has living-understanding. Wisdom will extend your life, making every year more fruitful than the one before.” (Passion).
