When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:
Solomon wrote that when wisdom took control of one’s mind or heart, knowledge will become pleasant. Discretion, or the ability to make wise decisions, will save a person from many problems. Sound judgment will delivers us from involvement with wicked men. When wisdom, knowledge, and discretion is applied to our life, we are protected from the world of ungodly individuals who misrepresent facts and distort the truth.
