If you call for intelligence,
And to understanding raise your voice,
Then the knowledge of God you will find.
For the Lord gives wisdom.
Understanding will guard you,
Saving you from those whose ways are devious.
The upright will dwell in the land,
people of integrity will remain in it.
But the wicked will be cut off from the land,
The faithless will be rooted out of it.
Proverbs 2 (paraphrased)
