Job’s Discourse on Wisdom (3)

Job 28:23-28

23 “God understands its way,
And He knows its place.
24 For He looks to the ends of the earth,
And sees under the whole heavens,
25 To establish a weight for the wind,
And apportion the waters by measure.
26 When He made a law for the rain,
And a path for the thunderbolt,
27 Then He saw wisdom and declared it;
He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out.
28 And to man He said,
‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
And to depart from evil is understanding.’ ”

Only in God can wisdom be found, and only in fearing the Lord can one experience His wisdom. Understanding is the same as repentance from sin. [The Bible Panorama.]
