“The purpose of Proverbs is to give "prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young" Proverbs 1:4, and to make wise men wiser (1:5).
The frequent references to “my son” emphasize instructing the young and guiding them into a happy and prosperous life. Acquiring wisdom and knowing how to avoid the pitfalls of folly will lead to health and success. Proverbs is a practical book dealing with the area of living, it bases wisdom solidly on the fear of the Lord. Throughout the book this reverence for God is set forth as the path to life and security.” Taken from the introduction in the NIV Study Bible
