Matthew Henry Commentary
1:1-6 The lessons here given are plain, and likely to benefit those who feel their own ignorance, and their need to be taught. If young people take heed to their ways, according to Solomon's Proverbs, they will gain knowledge and discretion.

Christ is the Word and the Wisdom of God, and he is made to us wisdom.
