For wisdom will enter your heart
And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
“I have not departed from the command of His lips;
I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.
Let my meditation be pleasing to Him;
As for me, I shall be glad in the Lord.
O how I love Your law!
It is my meditation all the day.
How sweet are Your words to my taste!
Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
I have inherited Your testimonies forever,
For they are the joy of my heart.
I rejoice at Your word,
As one who finds great spoil.
Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding,
But in the hearts of fools it is made known.
He who separates himself seeks his own desire,
He quarrels against all sound wisdom.
My son, eat honey, for it is good,
Yes, the honey from the comb is sweet to your taste;
Your words were found and I ate them,
And Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart;
For I have been called by Your name,
O Lord God of hosts.
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
