And, he, said unto himThou shalt love the Lord thy Godwith all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind:
Who is wise and well-instructed-among you? Let him show, out of his comely behaviour, his works, in meekness of wisdom.
The things on high, hold in esteem, not the things upon the earth:
Let, iron, by iron, become sharp, and let, a man, sharpen the face of his friend.
For, in much wisdom, is much vexation,and, he that increaseth knowledge, increaseth pain.
Be taking heed, therefore, exactly how ye are walking,not as unwise, but as wise,
Buying out for yourselves the opportunity, because, the days, are evil;
For I had not determined to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ,and, him, as one who had been crucified!
How happy the man who hath found wisdom, and the man who draweth forth understanding,
He that acquireth sense, loveth his own soul, he that guardeth understanding, shall find blessing.
For I say, through the favour which hath been given me, unto every one who is among you,not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but so to think as to think soberlyas, unto each one, God hath dealt a measure of faith.
For, the unseen things of him, from a worlds creation, by the things made, being perceived, are clearly seen, even his eternal power and divinity,to the end they should be without excuse;
Every one, therefore, who heareth these my words, and doeth them, shall be likened to a prudent man, who built his house upon the rock;
Even a fool, holding his peace, is accounted, wise,He that closeth his lips,
A prudent man, seeth calamityhe hideth himself, the simple, pass onthey suffer.
