Proverbs 1

"In verse 2, wisdom itself means first the practical know-how or cleverness which achieves things, though it comes to be a more abstract discipline concerned with theological questions. Discipline or 'instruction' reminds us that wisdom is not acquired cheaply or painlessly; it involves submission. Thus 'rebuke' or 'reproof' often accompanies discipline or 'instruction'." -New Bible Cimmentary on Proverbs 1: 1-7
