My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;3
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;4
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;5
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.6
For the LORDgivethwisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
