Proverbs 24:3-7, 14, 17-18, 26, 29, 33-34

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.  A wise man has great power, and a man of knowledge increases strength; for waging war you need guidance, and for victory many advisers.  Wisdom is too high for a fool; in the assembly at the gate he has nothing to say.  Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.  Do not gloat when you enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from him.  An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.  Do not say, “I’ll do to him as he has done to me; I’ll pay that man back for what he did.”  A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest – and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man.
