Hebrew Bible, Job, 32.8-32.10

nanTherefore I say: ‘Hearken to me; I also will declare mine opinion.’"

אָכֵן רוּחַ־הִיא בֶאֱנוֹשׁ וְנִשְׁמַת שַׁדַּי תְּבִינֵם׃But it is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty, that giveth them understanding."

לֹא־רַבִּים יֶחְכָּמוּ וּזְקֵנִים יָבִינוּ מִשְׁפָּט׃It is not the great that are wise, Nor the aged that discern judgment."
