1:7 Fearing the Lord is the beginning of moral knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
15:5 A fool rejects his father’s discipline,
but whoever heeds reproof shows good sense.
20:3 It is an honor for a person to cease from strife,
but every fool quarrels.
27:22 If you should pound the fool in the mortar
among the grain with the pestle,
his foolishness would not depart from him.
