Job 28


Man searches for hidden treasures,

From the earth, from the farthest recesses,

Even cutting into the foundations of the mountains for precious metals,

Wisdom however is not to be found on earth,

No living creature has seen it or are even close,

Even man does not understand its worth,

But it is more precious than gold, crystal or silver

Only God knows.


Fortunately the answer lies in the bible, as mentioned repetitively throughout the old testament.

The answer is simple, yet profound

Wisdom, is the fear of the Lord.
