Scriptures on Wisdom – the person


    Proverbs 4:7-13


    Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

    Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her.

    She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

    Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

    I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

    When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

    Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
