7  Timor Domini principium sapientiae, sapientiam atque doctrinam stulti despiciunt.
8  Audi, fili mi, disciplinam patris tui et ne dimittas legem matris tuae.

7  A bölcsesség kezdete az Úr félelme. A balgák a bölcsességet és az intést megvetik.
8  Figyelj, fiam, atyád intelmére, s el ne hagyd anyád tanítását.

7  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
8  My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother.
