True Wisdom

True wisdom is found only in the fear of the Lord.

Wisdom:

is a defense

is sweet to your soul

is given by God to those who ask

brightens your face

delivers your soul from death

worth more than rubies

cannot be bought...

it's priceless.

Job 28:12-28

12 “But where can wisdom be found?
And where is the place of understanding?

13 Man does not know its value,
Nor is it found in the land of the living.

14 The deep says, ‘It is not in me’;
And the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’

15 It cannot be purchased for gold,
Nor can silver be weighed for its price.

16 It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir,
In precious onyx or sapphire.

17 Neither gold nor crystal can equal it,
Nor can it be exchanged for jewelry of fine gold.

18 No mention shall be made of coral or quartz,
For the price of wisdom is above rubies.

19 The topaz of Ethiopia cannot equal it,
Nor can it be valued in pure gold.

20 “From where then does wisdom come?
And where is the place of understanding?

21 It is hidden from the eyes of all living,
And concealed from the birds of the air.

22 Destruction and Death say,

‘We have heard a report about it with our ears.’

23 God understands its way,
And He knows its place.

24 For He looks to the ends of the earth,
And sees under the whole heavens,

25 To establish a weight for the wind,
And apportion the waters by measure.

26 When He made a law for the rain,
And a path for the thunderbolt,

27 Then He saw wisdom and declared it;
He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out.

28 And to man He said,

‘ Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
And to depart from evil is understanding.’


Psalm 33:18-19

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

Proverbs 4:6-7

Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you;
Love her, and she will keep you.
Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.

Psalm 111:10

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.
His praise endures forever.

Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 16:16

How much better to get wisdom than gold!
And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.

Ecclesiastes 7:12
For wisdom is a defense as money is a defense, But the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it.

Proverbs 3:7
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.

Proverbs 14:33
Wisdom rests in the heart of him who has understanding, but what is in the heart of fools is made known.

Proverbs 18:4
The words of a man's mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

Proverbs 24:14
Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

Proverbs 29:15
To discipline a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child.

Ecclesiastes 2:26
To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God.

Ecclesiastes 8:1
Wisdom brightens a man's face and changes its hard appearance.

James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
