"God alone knows the way to Wisdom, he knows the exact place to find it.
He knows where everything is on earth, he sees everything under heaven.
After he commanded the winds to blow and measured out the waters,
Arranged for the rain and set off explosions of thunder and lightning,
He focused on Wisdom, made sure it was all set and tested and ready.
Then he addressed the human race: 'Here it is! Fear-of-the-Lord - that's Wisdom, and Insight means shunning evil.'"
