Proverbs 1

1 The wise sayings of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel.

2 To have knowledge of wise teaching; to be clear about the words of reason:

3 To be trained in the ways of wisdom, in righteousness and judging truly and straight behaviour:

4 To make the simple-minded sharp, and to give the young man knowledge, and serious purpose:

5 (The wise man, hearing, will get greater learning, and the acts of the man of good sense will be wisely guided:)

6 To get the sense of wise sayings and secrets, and of the words of the wise and their dark sayings.

7 The fear of the Lord is the start of knowledge: but the foolish have no use for wisdom and teaching.

8 My son, give ear to the training of your father, and do not give up the teaching of your mother:

9 For they will be a crown of grace for your head, and chain-ornaments about your neck.

10 My son, if sinners would take you out of the right way, do not go with them.

The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
