A proverb is good sense brought to a
point. John Morley
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto
wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for
understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou
understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of His mouth
knowledge and understanding.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own
understanding. In all thy ways
acknowledge him, and he shall direct
thy paths. Proverbs 3:5, 6

better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
Proverbs 3:13, 14
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
There is that scattereth, and yet
increaseth; and there is that
withholdeth more than is meet,
but it tendeth to poverty. The
liberal soul shall be made fat:
and he that watereth shall be
watered also himself.
