“The ‘fear’ [yare’: reverence, see(-ing), etc..] of ‘the Lord’ [ha-YHWH: the-Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym] is the beginning of knowledge, but ‘fools’ [ha-‘eviyl: the-perverse, etc..][a] despise wisdom and instruction.”
Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:
Fear: 3372 yare’ yaw-ray’ a primitive root; to fear; morally, to revere; caus. to frighten:–affright, be (make) afraid, dread(-ful), (put in) fear(-ful, -fully, -ing), (be had in) reverence(-end), X see[-ing], terrible (act, -ness, thing).
Fools: 191 ‘eviyl ev-eel’ from an unused root (meaning to be perverse); (figuratively) silly:–fool(-ish) (man).
YHWH (YH): “Modern scholars generally agree that YHWH is derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”, an archaic form of which is הוה (h-w-h), with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”. They connect it to [eg.] Exodus 3:14 – [ETC..] where the divinity [‘Elohiym of Israel, YHWH] who spoke with Moses responds to a question about his name by declaring: אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher ehyeh),“I am that I am” or “I will be what I will be”(in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).
“THE NAME THAT ‘EXPRESSES’ (IS) THE WORD AND WORKS OF ISRAEL’S ‘ELOHIYM:
“I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE”
