Proverbs 1:7

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;

  fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Proverbs 1:7 ESV

The book of Proverbs is dedicated to knowledge, the right kind of knowledge. That is to say wisdom and godliness. Note that the fool despises this kind of knowledge.

The remainder of the book provides a contrast between the righteous and the fool.
