{4}"Come, you simple ones without good judgment; 
{5} come to wisdom's banquet and drink the wines that I have mixed.
{6} Leave behind your foolishness and begin to live;
 learn how to be wise." 

{7} If you rebuke a mocker, you will only get a smart retort;
 yes, he will snarl at you. 
{8} So don't bother with him; he will only hate you for trying to help him. 
But a wise man, when rebuked, will love you all the more. 
{9} Teach a wise man, and he will be the wiser; 
teach a good man, and he will learn more. 

{10} For the reverence and fear of God are basic to all wisdom. 
Knowing God results in every other kind of understanding. 

{11} "I, Wisdom, will make the hours of your day more profitable 
and the years of your life more fruitful." 

{12} Wisdom is its own reward, 
and if you scorn her, you hurt only yourself.
Prov 9:4-12 (TLB) 
If you want favor with both God and man, 
and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, 
then trust the Lord completely; 
don't ever trust yourself.
 {5} {6} In everything you do, put God first, 
and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. 

{7} Don't be conceited, sure of your own wisdom.
 Instead, trust and reverence the Lord, and turn your back on evil;
 when you do that, then you will be given renewed health and vitality. 
 Prov 3:4-7 (TLB) 
{5} If you want to know what God wants you to do, 
ask him, and he will gladly tell you, 
for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him; 
he will not resent it. 

{6} But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to tell you,
 for a doubtful mind will be as unsettled 
as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind; 
{7} and every decision you then make will be uncertain,
 as you turn first this way and then that. 
If you don't ask with faith, 
don't expect the Lord to give you any solid answer.
James 1:5-7 (TLB)
