My son, if you receive my words,And treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom,And apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment,And lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
Proverbs 2:1-6 (NKJV)
