CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Come, ye children - All ye that are of an humble, teachable spirit.

Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
Listen, my sons, to a father's instruction; pay attention and gain understanding.
