To know wisdom and instruction; To comprehend the words of understanding;" 1.5. That the wise man may hear, and increase in learning, And the man of understanding may attain unto wise counsels;" 2.1. My son, if thou wilt receive my words, And lay up my commandments with thee;" 2.2. So that thou make thine ear attend unto wisdom, And thy heart incline to discernment;" 2.3. Yea, if thou call for understanding, And lift up thy voice for discernment;" 2.4. If thou seek her as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures;" 2.5. Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, And find the knowledge of God." 2.7. He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright, He is a shield to them that walk in integrity;" 2.8. That He may guard the paths of justice, And preserve the way of His godly ones. ." 2.9. Then shalt thou understand righteousness and justice, And equity, yea, every good path." 2.10. For wisdom shall enter into thy heart, And knowledge shall be pleasant unto thy soul;" 2.11. Discretion shall watch over thee, Discernment shall guard thee;" 2.12. To deliver thee from the way of evil, From the men that speak froward things;" 2.13. Who leave the paths of uprightness, To walk in the ways of darkness;" 2.14. Who rejoice to do evil, And delight in the frowardness of evil;" 2.15. Who are crooked in their ways, And perverse in their paths;" 2.16. To deliver thee from the strange woman, Even from the alien woman that maketh smooth her words;" 2.17. That forsaketh the lord of her youth, And forgetteth the covet of her God." 2.18. For her house sinketh down unto death, And her paths unto the shades;" 2.19. None that go unto her return, Neither do they attain unto the paths of life;" 2.20. That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, And keep the paths of the righteous." 3.18. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, And happy is every one that holdest her fast." 3.22. So shall they be life unto thy soul, And grace to thy neck." 9.9. Give to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning."
3. Philo of Alexandria, On Husbandry, 9, 8 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

8. First of all, therefore, the husbandman is not anxious to plant or to sow anything that is unproductive, but only all such things as are worth cultivation, and as bear fruit, which will bring a yearly produce to their master man. For nature has pointed him out as the master of all trees and animals, and all other things whatever which are perishable;
4. Philo of Alexandria, On Flight And Finding, 98, 97 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

97. Therefore he exhorts him who is able to run swiftly to strain onwards, without stopping to take breath, to the highest word of God, which is the fountain of wisdom, in order that by drinking of that stream he may find everlasting life instead of death. But he urges him who is not so swift of foot to flee for refuge to the creative power which Moses calls God, since it is by that power that all things were made and arranged; for to him who comprehends that everything has been created, that comprehension alone, and the knowledge of the Creator, is a great acquisition of good, which immediately persuades the creature to love him who created it.

8. New Testament, Hebrews, 5.12-5.14 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

5.12. For when by reason of the time you ought to be teachers, you again need to have someone teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the oracles of God. You have come to need milk, and not solid food. 5.13. For everyone who lives on milk is not experienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a baby. 5.14. But solid food is for those who are full grown, who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil.
9. New Testament, Matthew, 5.15 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)
