My son, if thou receivest my words, and hidest my behests with thee (and hidest my commands with thee);
(so) that thine ear hear wisdom, bow (down) thine heart to know prudence.
For if thou inwardly callest (to) wisdom, and bowest thine heart to(ward) prudence;
if thou seekest it as money, and diggest it out as treasures;
then thou shalt understand the dread of the Lord, and shalt find the knowing of God. (then thou shalt understand the fear of the Lord/then thou shalt understand reverence for the Lord, and shalt find the knowledge of God.)
For the Lord giveth wisdom; and prudence and knowing is of his mouth. (For the Lord giveth wisdom; and understanding and knowledge cometh from his mouth.)
