But wisdom, where shall it be found? and where is the place of understanding? Man knoweth not the value thereof; and it is not found in the land of the living. The deep saith, It is not in me; and the sea saith, It is not with me. read more.
Choice gold cannot be given for it, nor silver be weighed for its price. It is not set in the balance with gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, and the sapphire. Gold and glass cannot be compared to it, nor vessels of fine gold be its exchange. Corals and crystal are no more remembered; yea, the acquisition of wisdom is above rubies. The topaz of Ethiopia shall not be compared to it, neither shall it be set in the balance with pure gold. Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding? For it is hidden from the eyes of all living, and concealed from the fowl of the heavens. Destruction and death say, We have heard its report with our ears. God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth its place: For he looketh to the ends of the earth, he seeth under the whole heaven. In making a weight for the wind, and meting out the waters by measure, In appointing a statute for the rain, and a way for the thunder's flash: Then did he see it, and declare it; he established it, yea, and searched it out; And unto man he said, Lo, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Blessed is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the gain thereof is better than the gain of silver, and her revenue than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies; and all the things thou canst desire are not equal unto her. read more.
Length of days is in her right hand; in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her; and happy is he that retaineth her. Jehovah by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens. By his knowledge the deeps were broken up, and the skies drop down the dew. My son, let them not depart from thine eyes; keep sound wisdom and discretion: so shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace unto thy neck. Then shalt thou walk in thy way securely, and thy foot shall not stumble; when thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid, but thou shalt lie down and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know intelligence; for I give you good doctrine: forsake ye not my law. For I was a son unto my father, tender and an only one in the sight of my mother. read more.
And he taught me, and said unto me, Let thy heart retain my words; keep my commandments and live. Get wisdom, get intelligence: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall keep thee; love her, and she shall preserve thee. The beginning of wisdom is, Get wisdom; and with all thy getting get intelligence. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee; she shall bring thee to honour when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thy head a garland of grace; a crown of glory will she bestow upon thee. Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of thy life shall be multiplied. I will teach thee in the way of wisdom, I will lead thee in paths of uprightness. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Take fast hold of instruction, let her not go: keep her, for she is thy life.

Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men: avoid it, pass not by it; turn from it, and pass away.







The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that taketh heed to his way keepeth his soul.



The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring for ever; the judgments of Jehovah are truth, they are righteous altogether:






By loving-kindness and truth iniquity is atoned for; and by the fear of Jehovah men depart from evil.

Jehovah is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness; and he shall be the stability of thy times, the riches of salvation, wisdom and knowledge: the fear of Jehovah shall be your treasure.

I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find the knowledge which cometh of reflection. The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil; pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am intelligence; I have strength.

See, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, even as Jehovah my God commanded me, that ye may do so in the land into which ye enter to possess it. And ye shall keep and do them; for that will be your wisdom and your understanding before the eyes of the peoples that shall hear all these statutes, and say, Verily this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

With the aged is wisdom, and in length of days understanding. With him is wisdom and might; he hath counsel and understanding. Behold, he breaketh down, and it is not built again; he shutteth up a man, and there is no opening.
