    Solomon breaks down a simple conclusion of understanding ,wisdom and knowledge of GOD and all we have to do is take the time to read . The LORD made it simple for a great daily reading and even though I have a tenth grade education , All we have to do is read and GOD reveals his word .

    This is really awesome. Wisdom is profitable to direct. Since the heavens and earth were created through the Wisdom of God, by extension, man cannot do anything profiting without the Wisdom of God, which is first of all pure.
