Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great? And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
