• Proverbs 22:3-6
    A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself,
    But the simple pass on and are punished.
    By humility and the fear of the LORD
    Are riches and honor and life.
    Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse;
    He who guards his soul will be far from them.
    Train up a child in the way he should go,
    And when he is old he will not depart from it.

     
  • Proverbs 1:2-7
    To know wisdom and instruction,
    To perceive the words of understanding,
    To receive the instruction of wisdom,
    Justice, judgment, and equity;
    To give prudence to the simple,
    To the young man knowledge and discretion—
    A wise man will hear and increase learning,
    And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
    To understand a proverb and an enigma,
    The words of the wise and their riddles.
    The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
    But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
     
  • Proverbs 14:15-16

    But a fool rages and is self-confident.

     
  • Ecclesiastes 7:11-12

  • Proverbs 2:1-7
    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;

     
  • Proverbs 4:5-7
    Get wisdom! Get understanding!

    Wisdom is the principal thing;
    Therefore get wisdom.
    And in all your getting, get understanding.

  • Proverbs 2:10-12
    When wisdom enters your heart,

    From the man who speaks perverse things,
