The Coming of Wisdom with Time

19 06 2013

Though leaves are many, the root is one;
Through all the lying days of my youth
I swayed my leaves and flowers in the sun;
Now I may wither into the truth.

William Butler Yeats

green leaves of summer

Proverbs 3:13-19

Lexham English Bible (LEB)

 Happy is the one who finds wisdom,
and one who obtains understanding.
For her income is better than the income of silver,
and her revenue than that of gold.
She is more precious than rubies,
and all your desires shall not compare with her.
Length of days is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life for those who seize her;
those who take hold of her are considered happy.

 Yahweh in wisdom founded the earth;
he established the heavens in understanding.
