2- For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.

3- Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

4- And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

5A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

6- For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.

7- Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.

4- Through knowledge its rooms are filled with all sorts of precious riches and valuables.
