箴言 1

箴言的价值

1这是大卫的儿子以色列王所罗门的箴言。

为使人认识智慧和教诲,
    领悟真知灼见;
为使人接受劝诫,
    为人处事仁义、公平、正直;
使愚昧人明智,
    使青年有知识和明辨力;
使智者听了长学问,
    明哲听了得指引;
使人领悟箴言和比喻,
    明白智者的话和谜语。

知识始于敬畏耶和华,

    愚人轻视智慧和教诲。
孩子啊,
    你要听从父亲的教诲,
    不可背弃母亲的训言。
因为这要作你头上的华冠,
    颈上的项链。
10 孩子啊,恶人若引诱你,
    千万不要听从。
11 他们若说:“跟我们来吧,
    我们去埋伏杀人,
    暗害无辜者取乐;
12 我们要像阴间一样生吞他们,
    整个吞没他们,
    使他们如坠入坟墓的人;
13 我们必得到各样宝物,
    把战利品装满我们的房屋。
14 跟我们一起干吧,
    大家有福同享!”
15 孩子啊,
    不要走他们的道,
    切莫行他们的路。
16 因为他们奔向罪恶,
    急速地去杀人流血。
17 在飞鸟眼前设网罗,徒劳无功。
18 他们埋伏,却自流己血;
    他们伏击,却自害己命。
19 这就是贪爱不义之财者的结局,
    不义之财终要夺去他们的性命。

智慧的劝诫

20 智慧在大街上高喊,
    在广场上扬声,
21 在热闹的市集宣告,
    在城门口演说:
22 “你们愚昧人喜爱愚昧,
    嘲讽者以嘲弄为乐,
    无知者厌恶知识,
    要到什么时候呢?
23 你们若因我的责备而回转,
    我就向你们显明我的旨意[a]
    叫你们明白我的话语。
24 我呼唤你们,
    你们却充耳不闻;
    我向你们招手,
    你们却视若无睹。
25 你们漠视我的劝诫,
    不接受我的责备。
26 因此,
    你们遭遇灾难时,
    我必发笑;
    惊恐临到你们时,
    我必嗤笑——
27 那时,恐惧如风暴袭击你们,
    灾难如旋风临到你们,
    忧愁和苦难吞没你们。
28 你们呼求我,
    我也不回答;
    你们恳切地寻找我,
    却找不到。
29 因为你们厌恶知识,
    不愿意敬畏耶和华,
30 不接受我的劝诫,
    又藐视我的责备。
31 所以,你们必自食其果,
    因自己的恶谋而吃尽苦头。
32 愚昧人背离正道,
    自招灭亡;
    愚顽人逍遥自在,
    毁掉自己。
33 然而,那听从我的必安然居住,
    得享安宁,
    不怕灾祸。”

Proverbs 1

The Purpose of Proverbs

1These are the proverbs of Solomon, David’s son, king of Israel.

Their purpose is to teach people wisdom and discipline,
    to help them understand the insights of the wise.
Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives,
    to help them do what is right, just, and fair.
These proverbs will give insight to the simple,
    knowledge and discernment to the young.

Let the wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser.
    Let those with understanding receive guidance
by exploring the meaning in these proverbs and parables,
    the words of the wise and their riddles.

Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge,
    but fools despise wisdom and discipline.

A Father’s Exhortation: Acquire Wisdom

My child,[a] listen when your father corrects you.
    Don’t neglect your mother’s instruction.
What you learn from them will crown you with grace
    and be a chain of honor around your neck.

10 My child, if sinners entice you,
    turn your back on them!
11 They may say, “Come and join us.
    Let’s hide and kill someone!
    Just for fun, let’s ambush the innocent!
12 Let’s swallow them alive, like the grave[b];
    let’s swallow them whole, like those who go down to the pit of death.
13 Think of the great things we’ll get!
    We’ll fill our houses with all the stuff we take.
14 Come, throw in your lot with us;
    we’ll all share the loot.”

15 My child, don’t go along with them!
    Stay far away from their paths.
16 They rush to commit evil deeds.
    They hurry to commit murder.
17 If a bird sees a trap being set,
    it knows to stay away.
18 But these people set an ambush for themselves;
    they are trying to get themselves killed.
19 Such is the fate of all who are greedy for money;
    it robs them of life.

Wisdom Shouts in the Streets

20 Wisdom shouts in the streets.
    She cries out in the public square.
21 She calls to the crowds along the main street,
    to those gathered in front of the city gate:
22 “How long, you simpletons,
    will you insist on being simpleminded?
How long will you mockers relish your mocking?
    How long will you fools hate knowledge?
23 Come and listen to my counsel.
I’ll share my heart with you
    and make you wise.

24 “I called you so often, but you wouldn’t come.
    I reached out to you, but you paid no attention.
25 You ignored my advice
    and rejected the correction I offered.
26 So I will laugh when you are in trouble!
    I will mock you when disaster overtakes you—
27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm,
    when disaster engulfs you like a cyclone,
    and anguish and distress overwhelm you.

28 “When they cry for help, I will not answer.
    Though they anxiously search for me, they will not find me.
29 For they hated knowledge
    and chose not to fear the Lord.
30 They rejected my advice
    and paid no attention when I corrected them.
31 Therefore, they must eat the bitter fruit of living their own way,
    choking on their own schemes.
32 For simpletons turn away from me—to death.
    Fools are destroyed by their own complacency.
33 But all who listen to me will live in peace,
    untroubled by fear of harm.”
