For the Lord gives wisdom,Proverbs 2:6-7
and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright
and is a shield to those who walk in integrity—
In the first 5 verses the listener is encouraged to listen for wisdom, to concentrate on understanding, and call out for understanding and then here in verse six Solomon reveals that wisdom comes from the Lord, as does knowledge and understanding. So the underlying instruction is to seek the Lord – listen to Him and call out to Him. Why? Because those who seek after Him and walk in His ways are those to whom He will give wisdom and for whom He will be a shield of defense.
May God grant us wisdom and understanding so that we may please Him and know His discernment and protection. In Jesus’ Name – Amen
