My son, if you will take my words to your heart, storing up my laws in your mind;
So that your ear gives attention to wisdom, and your heart is turned to knowledge;
Truly, if you are crying out for good sense, and your request is for knowledge;
If you are looking for her as for silver, and searching for her as for stored-up wealth;
Then the fear of the Lord will be clear to you, and knowledge of God will be yours.
For the Lord gives wisdom; out of his mouth come knowledge and reason:
