O God! thy justice, give, unto the king, And thy righteousness, unto the son of a king;
But, to such as are mature, pertaineth, the strong food, to them who, by reason of habit, have their organs of perception well trained for discriminating both good and evil.

Now, wisdom and knowledge, give thou unto me, that I may go out before this people, and may come in, - for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?
Give me understanding, that I may observe thy law, that I may keep it with a whole heart.
Righteous are thy testimonies, unto times age-abiding, Give me understanding, that I may live.
To acquire wisdom, how much better than gold! and, to get hold of understanding, more choice than silver!
The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and might, The spirit of knowledge and reverence of Yahweh;
And Moses said unto God, Who am, I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, - and that I should bring forth the sons of Israel out of Egypt?
