The Value of Wisdom

Proverbs 2:1–5 (ESV)

My son, if you receive my words

and treasure up my commandments with you,

making your ear attentive to wisdom

and inclining your heart to understanding;

yes, if you call out for insight

and raise your voice for understanding,

if you seek it like silver

and search for it as for hidden treasures,

then you will understand the fear of the Lord

and find the knowledge of God.

Proverbs 2:9–15 (ESV)

Then you will understand righteousness and justice

and equity, every good path;

10  for wisdom will come into your heart,

and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;

11  discretion will watch over you,

understanding will guard you,

12  delivering you from the way of evil,

from men of perverted speech,

13  who forsake the paths of uprightness

to walk in the ways of darkness,

14  who rejoice in doing evil

and delight in the perverseness of evil,

15  men whose paths are crooked,

and who are devious in their ways.

Proverbs 2:20 (ESV)

20  So you will walk in the way of the good

and keep to the paths of the righteous.
