Seeking Spiritual Wisdom
“The Value of Wisdom
My son, if you receive my words, And treasure my commands within you, 2So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding; 3Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, 4If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures;”
— NKJV Study Bible, Full-Color, eBook: The Complete Resource for Studying God’s Word by Thomas Nelson
My son, pay attention to what I say. Listen to and hear my commands.
Hear my wisdom, and do your best to understand.
Ask for good judgment. Cry out for understanding.
Look for wisdom like you search silver.
Search for it like precious metals.
By doing this, you will understand what it means to respect the Lord, and you will come to know God.
The Lord is the source of wisdom; knowledge and understanding come from his mouth.
He gives good advice to honest people and shields those who do what is right.
He makes sure that people are treated fairly. He watches over his loyal followers.
