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.
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
But the path of the [uncompromisingly] just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until [it reaches its full strength and glory in] the perfect day [to be prepared]. [II Sam. 23:4; Matt. 5:14; Phil. 2:15.]AMP
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
