The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
23 "God alone knows the way to Wisdom, he knows the exact place to find it. 23 God understands the way to it and he alone knows where it dwells,
24 He knows where everything is on earth, he sees everything under heaven. 24 for he views the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens.
25 After he commanded the winds to blow and measured out the waters, 25 When he established the force of the wind and measured out the waters,
26 Arranged for the rain and set off explosions of thunder and lightning, 26 when he made a decree for the rain and a path for the thunderstorm,
27 He focused on Wisdom, made sure it was all set and tested and ready. 27 then he looked at wisdom and appraised it; he confirmed it and tested it.
28 Then he addressed the human race: 'Here it is! Fear-of-the-Lord - that's Wisdom, and Insight means shunning evil.'" 28 And he said to man, 'The fear of the Lord--that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.' "
