He is the Almighty God.
To go against Him is sheer foolishness.
To fear Him is the beginning of wisdom.
The simple man wants wisdom;
The starting point is fear of the One Who judges man's souls.
Wisdom naturally follows; it can't help but follow.
Only wisdom can proceed from fear of the Lord.
Foolishness exists wear holy fear is absent.
Where holy fear exists, foolishness is not.
The foolish man says, "I have no fear."
The wise man says, "I fear the Lord."
