Proverbs 4:5-9 Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth. (6) “Do not forsake her, and she will guard you; Love her, and she will watch over you. (7) “The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get understanding. (8) “Prize her, and she will exalt you; She will honor you if you embrace her. (9) “She will place on your head a garland of grace; She will present you with a crown of beauty.”
Proverbs 3:13-19 How blessed is the man who finds wisdom And the man who gains understanding. (14) For her profit is better than the profit of silver And her gain better than fine gold. (15) She is more precious than jewels; And nothing you desire compares with her. (16) Long life is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor. (17) Her ways are pleasant ways And all her paths are peace. (18) She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who hold her fast. (19) The LORD by wisdom founded the earth, By understanding He established the heavens.
