28 ] And he said to man,
‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
and to turn away from evil is understanding.’”
Job 28:28 ESV
Of all the time I have prayed for wisdom and understanding. i know I'm a sinner, and i know I don't know the inner most parts of how the universe, life, and Godly manners really work. Don't get me wrong I've been working the word for a long time. However, that doesnt mean one is wise and has understanding. Doesn't mean I don't either. The more one knows the more one knows just how much they don't know, and how much God is really doing for us.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction. (ESV)
pThe fear of the Lord is the By tsteadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by uthe fear of the Lord one vturns away from evil.
beginning of wisdom,
and qthe knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,
and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
