And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding (Job 28:28).
The goodness of the LORD shall abide with thee as a cloak around thy neck and a crown upon thy head. For to love God is to fear God and to understand this truth with all thy heart. Let thy soul cry for knowledge, that the God on High shall abide. Let thy path be stretched out with mercy and grace. For who God has bestowed wisdom he has bestowed life. Death shall flee from him that is wise unto God. Rivers of oil shall pour upon him, and the glory of God shall abide in this truth. For him who believe God is richer that all the riches in the land. But him that is unwise, death shall seek him. Like the darkness of the night, it shall follow him. For how can a fool know his path if he knows not what is crocked? How can he say, let the crocked be straight, and let him who maketh his path prosper?
The LORD liveth in infinite wisdom, and the beauty of holiness, in truth. From the mouth of God cometh a good thing, and who shall feast in it shall feast in glory. To understand God is to know God. To know God is to fear God. He that fear God is wise in all his ways. And who can measure the worth of his wisdom? Can all the riches of the world be considered? It shall all be vain. For what glory shall it bring? Shall not death beseech it? And shall not destruction call out its name? Wisdom is the light of the living God, a light that shall not go dark. But it shall shine forever like a beacon upon a hill with the glory of God. Wise men understand this, and they rejoice in it.
