Job 28:23-28

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