He that gets wisdom loves his own soul: he that keeps understanding shall find good.
The way of getting this wisdom is to be sensible of our need of it; to trust in Him to whom all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge belong, for the communication of it; and to be diligent in the use of the means which He hath appointed, and will bless, for conveying it to us. We must not only get, but keep, this precious treasure, retaining it in our hearts, showing it forth in all our behaviour, and refusing to part with it on any account.
(George Lawson, D. D.)
Parallel VersesKJV: He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
