My child, learn what I teach you and never forget what I tell you to do.
Listen to what is wise and try to understand it.
Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight.
Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure.
If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God.
It is the Lord who gives wisdom; from him come knowledge and understanding. 1
