Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, For they are ever mine.
So keep and do them, for that is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’
Or what great nation is there that has statutes and judgments as righteous as this whole law which I am setting before you today?
So David went out wherever Saul sent him, and prospered; and Saul set him over the men of war. And it was pleasing in the sight of all the people and also in the sight of Saul’s servants.
David was prospering in all his ways for the Lord was with him.
Then the commanders of the Philistines went out to battle, and it happened as often as they went out, that David behaved himself more wisely than all the servants of Saul. So his name was highly esteemed.
Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.
I have chosen the faithful way; I have placed Your ordinances before me.
From Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way.
For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
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.
But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.
