Seek Wisdom to find Understanding!

And I have given my heart to seek and to search out by wisdom concerning all that hath been done under the heavens. It is a sad travail God hath given to the sons of man to be humbled by it. – Ecclesiastes 1: 13 Young’s Literal Translation

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. – James 3:17 Webster’s Bible Translation

Thus saith the Lord:

22 Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Neither let the mighty man glory in his might,
Let not the rich man glory in his riches; 23But let him that glorieth glory in this, That he understandeth, and knoweth Me, That I am the Lord who exercise mercy, Justice, and righteousness, in the earth; For in these things I delight, Saith the Lord. – Jeremiah 9: 22 & 23 JPS Tanakh 1917
