The Place of Wisdom and Understanding – Job 28

Job 28:1 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for  gold where they fine it. 

Job 28:2 Iron is taken out of the  earth, and brass is molten out of the stone. 

Job 28:3 He  setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection:  the stones of 
darkness, and the shadow of death. 

Job 28:4 The  flood breaketh out from the inhabitant; even the waters  forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away  from men. 


Job 28:5 As for the earth, out of it cometh bread:  and under it is turned up as it were fire. 

Job 28:6 The stones  of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.  

Job 28:7 There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which  the vulture’s eye hath not seen: 

Job 28:8 The lion’s whelps  have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it. 

Job 28:9  He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the  mountains by the roots. 

Job 28:10 He cutteth out rivers  among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.  

Job 28:11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the  thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light. 

Job 28:12 But  where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of  understanding? 

Job 28:13 Man knoweth not the price thereof;  neither is it found in the land of the living. 

Job 28:14 The  depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not  with me. 

Job 28:15 It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall  silver be weighed for the price thereof. 

Job 28:16 It cannot  be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or  the sapphire. 

Job 28:17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal  it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine  gold. 

Job 28:18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of  pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies. 

Job 28:19  The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be  valued with pure gold. 

Job 28:20 Whence then cometh  wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?  

Job 28:21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept  close from the fowls of the air. 

Job 28:22 Destruction and  death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.  

Job 28:23 God understandeth the way thereof, and he  knoweth the place thereof. 

Job 28:24 For he looketh to the  ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;  

Job 28:25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth  the waters by measure. 

Job 28:26 When he made a decree for  the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder: 

Job 28:27  Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and  searched it out. 

Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the  fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil  is understanding. KJV
