Proverbs 2:1–8

and directing your heart to understanding;

furthermore, if you call out to insight

and lift your voice to understanding,

if you seek it like silver

and search for it like hidden treasure,g

then you will understand the fear of the Lord

and discover the knowledge of God.

For the Lord gives wisdom;

and protect the way of his faithful followers.j
