Job 28:20



20 Whence ['aiyn] then cometh [bow'] wisdom [chokmah]? and where is the place [maqowm] of understanding [biynah]? KJV-Interlinear



20 'Where then does wisdom come from? And where is the place of understanding? NASB



Wisdom is more valuable than any natural thing in this world. Wisdom is more valuable than any imagined thing in this world. Wisdom is more valuable than any desired thing in this world. Wisdom is more valuable than any made thing in this world.


And yet wisdom cannot be purchased, cannot be identified as a commodity, wherein a person can go look at it, evaluate it, compare it, want it, and then simply purchase it (leather bound, gold trim, beautifully embossed initials), to take home, presumably to sit on a prominent shelf for all to see and admire right next to their Bible. 'Look, see, there is my wisdom!'


If wisdom cannot be purchased, and yet it exists such that it can be owned, and it is more valuable than anything else that exists, then why do people not pursue it with a passion, as they would other earthly things?


Where is wisdom? Where does it come from?


Where is understanding? Understanding is the compilation of details into some semblance of order such that a person can comprehend their meaning and purpose.


The world is not lacking in information. It is however, lacking in the interpretation and comprehension of that information.


And so Job asks the question. 'Why, does man, with so much information, information which is certainly not hidden from anyone, with so much intellect, with so much drive, with so much ingenuity, with so much imagination, with so much innovation, why does man misunderstand life, and therefore misunderstand wisdom?'


Where does wisdom come from? From the Bible. From truth. From the scriptures. And yet all of that is somehow not impressive enough. Not as impressive as building a skyscraper. Not as impressive as digging a long canal. Not as impressive as diamonds on a finger. Not as impressive as the skyline of a city. Not as impressive as ones own opinion.


People are more into their ego efforts to do things, for self, for others, for humanity, for the world, while they ignore the truths of life, namely Bible doctrine. People are driven by ego, by lusts, by emotions, and none of those things serve anything good in life.


Wisdom comes from only one source - Bible doctrine. Doctrine has to, while in fellowship, be learned, used, understood, and then wisdom develops within the soul out of all of that.


This is the circle of wisdom which is the ultimate path for attaining completeness in ones life.


Easy to discover, easy to attain, easy to comprehend, easy to possess. Wisdom is the easiest acquisition in existence, and yet most folks do not own it. They prefer a less valuable substitute.
