For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints.
The Hebrew word here translated as “righteous” is ישר [yashar] which means “straight, level, upright.” As we saw earlier, “rightness” is judged by God. His protection is promised for those who live according to His standards.
PRAY THAT ISRAEL WILL WALK UPRIGHTLY AND THAT IN MERCY.
