THE REWARD of WISDOM

THE REWARD of WISDOM

My child, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out your voice for understanding; If you seek it like silver And search for it as for hidden treasures;

Then you will understand the fear of God And find the knowledge of God. For God gives wisdom; From God's mouth come knowledge and understanding; God stores up sound wisdom for the upright; God is a shield to those who walk in integrity, Guarding the paths of justice And preserving the way of saints.

Then you will understand righteousness and justice And equity, every good path; For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; Discretion will watch over you; Understanding will guard you; delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech, who forsake the paths of uprightness To walk in the ways of darkness, who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil; men whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways.

PROVERBS 2: 1-15
