When Will You Understand What Is Right And Just And Fair?
Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair — every good path.
For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.
There is so much talk today about Fairness,
especially about the other guy paying his Fair Share.

Shield Of The Faithful Ones
He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
The Lord is our shield.

From The Mouth Of The Lord
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
If you have knowledge, understanding, and wisdom,
then thank the Lord for providing it.
Your Ear And Your Heart
My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding
indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
If you turn your ear to wisdom and your heart to understanding,
you will understand the fear and the knowledge of God.
