     understanding walketh uprightly.     Prov. 15:21

   They would have none of my counsel; they despised all my reproof.
     Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be

     snares of death.     Prov. 14:27

   Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise; and he 
     that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.     
     Prov. 17:28

   Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not;  Forsake her not, 
     and she shall preserve thee.  Wisdom is the main thing; 
     therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get 
     understanding.  Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall 
     bring thee to honor when thou dost embrace her.     Prov.4:5-8

  Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her for she is 
    thy life.  Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in 
    the way of evil men.     Prov. 4:13,14
