Proverbs 14:6; Proverbs 15:14; Ecclesiastes 2:14; Deuteronomy 30:11–14
6 nA scoffer seeks wisdom oin vain,
but pknowledge is easy for a man of understanding.
14 zThe heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,
but the mouths of fools feed on folly.
14 tThe wise person has his eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. And yet I perceived that the usame event happens to all of them.
The Choice of Life and Death
11 “For this commandment that I command you today tis not too hard for you, neither is it far off. 12 uIt is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend to heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ 14 But the word is very near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it.
