The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Read Chapter 9
George Leo Haydock
Prudence. Or "prudence is the science of the saints "(Haydock) directing what to choose on all occasions to obtain heaven. (Calmet)
The knowledge contained in the holy Scriptures, and possessed by the saints, is superior to all other sciences. (Menochius)
Discipline is an index to doctrine. [The heretics] say that God is not to be feared. So everything is free to them and unrestrained. But where is God not feared, except where he is not present? Where God is not present, there is no truth either; and where there is no truth, discipline like theirs is natural. But where God is present, there is the fear of God, there are decent seriousness, vigilant care and anxious solicitude, welltested selection, wellweighed communion and deserved promotion, religious obedience, devoted service, modest appearance, a united church, and all things godly.
