“Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.”
“And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
“The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.”
