Moral Benefits of Wisdom

1 My son,1 if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding,2 3 and if you call out for insight3 and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,4 5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.5 6 For the LORD gives wisdom,6 and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.7 7 He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield8 to those whose walk is blameless,9 8 for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.10 9 Then you will understand11 what is right and just and fair--every good path.
