Ecclesiastes 9:16; Ecclesiastes 9:18; Proverbs 21:22; Proverbs 24:5

16 But I say that bwisdom is better than might, though cthe poor man’s wisdom is despised and his words are not heard.

18 eWisdom is better than weapons of war, but fone sinner destroys much good.

22  bA wise man scales the city of the mighty

and brings down the stronghold in which they trust.

aA wise man is full of strength,

and a man of knowledge enhances his might,
