1 Peter 3:15, Acts 17:11

  
 
Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech: “How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?  -Proverbs 1:20-22

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.  -Proverbs 9:10
