He who has the wisdom that flows from God is wise, does good works and does not deviate to make the evil, but the wise man in his own conceit is very trusting because he thinks that he has everything under his feet.
The heart of the prudent seeks to please God and tries to do what is right before Him, to be recognized by God and not by men, that is why the man of prudent heart will always reach wisdom because he recognizes from whom wisdom comes.
15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
16 A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
17 He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
