Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law;
indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
and in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
