  • Proverbs 2:1-11
    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;
    He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
    He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
    He guards the paths of justice,
    And preserves the way of His saints.
    Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
    Equity and every good path.
    When wisdom enters your heart,
    And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
    Discretion will preserve you;
    Understanding will keep you,

  • Job 28:20-28
    “From where then does wisdom come?
    And where is the place of understanding? It is hidden from the eyes of all living,
    And concealed from the birds of the air. Destruction and Death say,
    ‘We have heard a report about it with our ears.’ God understands its way,
    And He knows its place. For He looks to the ends of the earth,
    And sees under the whole heavens, To establish a weight for the wind,
    And apportion the waters by measure. When He made a law for the rain,
    And a path for the thunderbolt, Then He saw wisdom and declared it;
    He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out. And to man He said,
    " Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
    And to depart from evil is understanding.""

And Moses said to the people, "Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin."
     
  • Deuteronomy 8:3

    Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,
    Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. Listen, please, and let me speak;
    You said, "I will question you, and you shall answer Me." "I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear,
    But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself,
    And repent in dust and ashes."

    She speaks her words:

    Because I have called and you refused,
    I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,

    When distress and anguish come upon you.
