So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and applythine heart to understanding;
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thyvoice for understanding;
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as forhid treasures;
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, andfind the knowledge of God. Your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God:
And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speechor of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, andhim crucified.
And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man'swisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought tosay:
And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers,take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:
For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.
We do not presently get brought into the synagogues, but we do sufferfor righteousness' sake:
But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meeknessand fear:
Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers,they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth comethknowledge and understanding.If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally,and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
