CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
28:27 It - Wisdom, which is the subject of the present discourse. This God saw within himself; he looked upon it in his own mind, as the rule by which he would proceed in the creation and government of all things. Declare - Or reveal it.

He made the laws for the rain and laid out a path for the lightning.
And this is what he says to all humanity: The fear of the Lord is true wisdom; to forsake evil is real understanding.'"
