Praise ye the Lord: . . . Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
. . . I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God:
This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me:
There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it:
Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city;
. . . Wisdom is better than strength:
The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
Wisdom is better than weapons of war:
But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
Man knoweth not the price thereof;
The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.
It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.
Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
