Bible verses about "knowledge" | KJ2000

Proverbs 2:1-22

1 My son, if you will receive my words, and lay up my commandments with you; 2 So that you incline your ear unto wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; 3 Yea, if you cry after knowledge, and lift up your voice for understanding; 4 If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hid treasures; 5 Then shall you understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD gives wisdom: out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding. 7 He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a shield to them that walk uprightly. 8 He keeps the paths of justice, and preserves the way of his saints. 9 Then shall you understand righteousness, and justice, and equity; yea, every good path. 10 When wisdom enters into your heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto your soul; 11 Discretion shall preserve you, understanding shall keep you: 12 To deliver you from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaks perverse things; 13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; 14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the perverseness of the wicked; 15 Whose ways are crooked, and who are perverse in their paths: 16 To deliver you from the immoral woman, even from the seductress who flatters with her words; 17 Who forsakes the companion of her youth, and forgets the covenant of her God. 18 For her house leads unto death, and her paths unto the dead. 19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life. 20 That you may walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous. 21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the blameless shall remain in it. 22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

Proverbs 3:1-35

1 My son, forget not my law; but let your heart keep my commandments: 2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to you. 3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you: bind them about your neck; write them upon the table of your heart: 4 So shall you find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to your body, and strength to your bones. 9 Honor the LORD with your substance, and with the firstfruits of all your increase: 10 So shall your barns be filled with plenty, and your presses shall burst out with new wine. 11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom the LORD loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights. 13 Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding. 14 For the gain from it is better than the gain from silver, and the profit thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things you can desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is everyone that retains her. 19 The LORD by wisdom has founded the earth; by understanding has he established the heavens. 20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. 21 My son, let not them depart from your eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: 22 So shall they be life unto your soul, and grace to your neck. 23 Then shall you walk in your way safely, and your foot shall not stumble. 24 When you lie down, you shall not be afraid: yea, you shall lie down, and your sleep shall be sweet. 25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the ruin from the wicked, when it comes. 26 For the LORD shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being snared. 27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do it. 28 Say not unto your neighbor, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when you have it with you. 29 Devise not evil against your neighbor, seeing he dwells securely by you. 30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he has done you no harm. 31 Envy you not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. 32 For the perverse is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous. 33 The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesses the habitation of the just. 34 Surely he scorns the scornful: but he gives grace unto the lowly. 35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the recompense of fools.
