The most important goal: wisdom, understanding

   Get wisdom, get understanding.  Forsake her not and she shall 
   preserve thee.  Love her and she shall keep thee.  Wisdom is 
   the principal thing.  Therefore get wisdom.  And with all thy 
   getting get understanding.  Exalt her and she shall promote 
   thee.  She shall bring you to honor when thou dost embrace her.    
   (Prov 4:5-8) 

   Happy is the man that findeth wisdom and the man that getteth 
   understanding.  For the merchandise of it is better than the 
   merchandise of silver and the gain thereof than fine gold.  She 
   is more precious than rubies.  And all the things thou canst 
   desire are not to be compared unto her.  Length of days is in 
   her right hand.  And in her left hand riches and honour.  Her 
   ways are ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace.  She 
   is a tree of life to them that lay hold on her.  And happy is 
   every one that retaineth her.    (Prov 3:13-18) 

   Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom.  And to depart 
   from evil is understanding.    (Job 28:28) 

   The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.  And the 
   knowledge of the holy is understanding.    (Prov 9:10) 

   Forsake the foolish and live.  And go in the way of 
   understanding. (Prov 9:6)
