“Get” (literally: “own it”), wisdom and understanding. They go together. If we don’t “own it,” our feelings and circumstances will “own” (control) us! Wisdom is the knowledge of God’s word; understanding is assessing the situation based upon God’s sovereign authority! Where do we start? (Proverbs 9:10) “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you.
Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you."
