1My son,if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,2turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding 3indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding,4and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,5then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.6For the LORD gives wisdom;from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

2: 3-6   Wisdom comes in two ways: It is both a God-given gift and the result of diligent searching. Wisdom’s starting point is God and his revealed Word, the source of knowledge and understanding (2: 6). In that sense, wisdom is God’s gift to us. But he gives wisdom only to those who earnestly seek it. Because God’s wisdom stays hidden from the rebellious and foolish, it requires effort to find it and use it. The pathway to wisdom is strenuous. But it is only on God’s path that we discover his true and reliable wisdom. He will guide us to it and reward our sincere and persistent search.
