What Is Proverbs 1:2 Press?
Proverbs 1:2 Press is named for the chapter and verse from the Bible's Book of Proverbs, the words of which were the first ever written in the Armenian alphabet:
Ճանաչել զիմաստութիւն եւ զխրատ, իմանալ զբանս հանճարոյ:
To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding.
While the Biblical chapter and verse are historically and culturally significant, the mission of Proverbs 1:2 Press is to revive the spirit of the divine words themselves, the same spirit that inspired St. Mesrob Mashtots to choose them as the first to be written in the alphabet he invented.
Proverbs 1:2 Press is an initiative of William and Nora Bairamian.
