Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain sound counsels;

 6 To understand a proverb and its hidden meaning; and the words of the wise with their obscure riddles. [These proverbs have hidden meanings; and to understand, you must hear, (verse 5 above)! Hear what?—hear the the wisdom and power of God, the Lord Jesus Christ speak to us. From the word of the Lord within: "He speaks to each of us mind-to-mind with words tailored to our exact understanding. Listen to and obey my voice; listen to my sweet words of wisdom." Not read his words, not hear someone else read his words or talk about Him, but hear for yourself the Lord speaking to you; Christ speaks. In humble silence, sit, wait, watch, and listen for Him to teach you and command you; but not to get specific teachings that you desire. Let wisdom instruct you according to His plan and agenda. In the end, you will know all things; but each man's journey with the Teacher is different because every man's life has been different.]

[Wisdom does not come from reading scriptures; wisdom comes from the Teacher, (Spirit of God), teaching you from the words of his mouthChrist speaks to those who wait on Him in humble silence as they listen, watch, hear, and obey.]

 20 My son, attend to my words; incline your ear to what I say. [From the Word of the Lord within: "He who seeks not to hear my voice gropes in the dark."]
