My son, if thou wilt receive my words and hide my commandments within thee,
so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom and apply thine heart to understanding;
yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
if thou seekest her as silver and searchest for her as for hidden treasure,
then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
For the LORD giveth wisdom; out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
