Prologue

Proverbs 1:1-7

1 The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel; 2 to know wisdom and chastening; to understand prudent words; 3 to receive the chastening of prudence, justice, judgment, and equity; 4 to give prudence to the simple, and to the young men knowledge and council. 5 If the wise will hear them, doctrine shall increase, and the man of understanding shall acquire wise counsel: 6 To understand a parable and the interpretation; the words of the wise and their enigmas.

7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and chastening.

Ecclesiastes 1:1-1

1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

1 John 1:1-4

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life 2 (for the life is manifested, and we also saw it and bear witness and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father and appeared unto us); 3 that which we have seen and heard we declare unto you, that ye also may have communion with us; and truly our communion is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be fulfilled.

Revelation 1:1-3

1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto his slaves things which are convenient to do quickly, and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his slave John, 2 who bore witness of the word of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he that reads and those that hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written therein, for the time is at hand.
