30 Second Reflection - Where can Wisdom be found?

But where can wisdom be found?
Where does understanding dwell?
No mortal comprehends its worth;
it cannot be found in the land of the living.
The deep says 'It is not in me'
the seas say, 'it is not with me'
It cannot be bought with the finest gold,
nor can its price be weighed out in silver...

Where then does wisdom come from?
Where does understanding dwell?
It is hidden from the eyes of every living thing
concealed even from the birds in the sky.
Death and destruction say,
'Only a rumour of it has reached our ears.'
God alone understands the way to it
and he alone knows where it dwells,
for he views the ends of the earth
and sees everything under the heavens.
- The book of Job (from the Bible)

This week all the 30 Second Reflection are on the theme of Wisdom linking in to the series on Wisdom running on the blog, click away for the first post 'What is Wisdom?'
