  • For the Lord gives wisdom;
        from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
    he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
        he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
    guarding the paths of justice
        and watching over the way of his saints.
    Then you will understand righteousness and justice
        and equity, every good path;
    10 for wisdom will come into your heart,
        and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
    11 discretion will watch over you,
        understanding will guard you,
    Proverbs 2:6-11 (ESV)

  • “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.Luke 6:45 (ESV)
