Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
Solomon reveals the characteristics of wisdom. It speaks things that are excellent, right, truthful, and righteous. It avoids speaking things that are evil, crooked, and perverse. The one who has wisdom will have a measure of discernrnent and understanding, which will keep them straight and just.
