    Proverbs 2:5 KJV Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord , and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:6 And here's why: God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding. In my opinion of this. Wisdom is not complicated. That's why the scripture tells us that the foolish things does God use to confound the wise
    2:3 That's right--if you make Insight your priority, and won't take no for an answer, 2:4 Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold, like an adventurer on a treasure hunt, 2:5 Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-GOD will be yours; you'll have come upon the Knowledge of God. 2:6 And here's why: GOD gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding. From verse 3... We do need to get our priorities straight Prov. 2 for me stresses the fact that wisdom is a choice All the "If thou"..... So after a click on the choice you get into endless offers
     
    Verses 10-11 (MSG) talks about 4 major characteristics Lady Wisdom, Brother Knowledge, Good Sense, Insights. These are the major 4 characters that a Christian must possess. From verse 10-20 I see wisdom being a "screener" (no dictionary has that)and defining boundaries for the companies not to keep “He gives good advice to honest people and shields those who do what is right.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭ERV‬‬ Sometimes as believers, we're lazy about hearing God for ourselves, we're always waiting for one pastor or one word of prophecy or the other Not that this is bad, but we need to seat up and tune in to hear God for ourselves. God is always speaking...we can get directions on issues of life if we would just settle down and listen for His voice, enough of slothful Christianity! Enough of lukewarmness, it's time to get up, it's time to be on Fire for God! It's the generation that would praise God. And seeking him is a requirement to hearing him.
     
    Proverbs 2:11-22 KJV Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: [12] To deliver thee from the way of the evil man , from the man that speaketh froward things; [13] Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; [14] Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; [15] Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: [16] To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; [17] Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. [18] For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. [19] None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life. [20] That thou mayest walk in the way of good men , and keep the paths of the righteous. [21] For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. [22] But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it. Verse 12-20 talks about our relationships with the opposite sex. Whoever draws your attention away from God is not worth befriending cos evil communication corrupts good manners. Verse 21 is a prove of God's promise to the righteous. Uprightness takes you to the promise land Perfection helps us remain in it. The opposite of Uprightness has only got just 1 major reward, Divine Extinction!
