The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
The beginning of Wisdom is: get Wisdom (skillful and godly Wisdom)! [For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing.] And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation). [James 1:5.]AMP
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
