Let us take a brief look at the word "knowledge". t[d - Da'ath which is a noun.

Using the NIV Translation, I'm going to put some verses here with some of our study words in them. What I would like for us to do, is in our notebooks, to re-write them inserting different aspects of that original word (like we've done just a wee bit prior), but let us really dig in and allow the Lord to truly speak to our hearts in this more "in-depth" study. Ready? Let's begin!
Proverbs 1:2 "for attaining biynah (wisdom) and discipline; for biynah (understanding) words of insight;"
Proverbs 1:7 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of da'ath (knowledge), but fools despise Chokmah (wisdom) and discipline."
Proverbs 2:2 "turning your ear to Chokmah (wisdom) and applying your heart to Tabuwn (understanding)"
Proverbs 2:3 "and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for biynah (understanding),"
please note, verses 2-11 would be a wonderful time of study for you to grasp this whole concept "in context"! As you find the time, may I encourage you to go to the Strongs Concordance, and look up each and every "wisdom, understanding, knowledge and insight" within these verses, following through the same format that we've been doing.
Proverbs 2:6 "For the Lord gives Chokmah (wisdom), and from his mouth come Da'ath (knowledge) and Tabuwn (understanding)."
Proverbs 8:12 "I, Chokmah (wisdom), dwell together with prudence; I possess Da'ath (knowledge) and discretion."
Proverbs 4:5 "Get biynah (wisdom), get biynah (understanding); do not forget my words or swerve from them."
2 Chronicles 1:12 "therefore Chokmah (wisdom) and Madda' (knowledge) will be given you"
1 Kings 4:29 "God gave Solomon Chokmah (wisdom) and very great insight, and a breadth of Tabwun (understanding) as measureless as the sand on the seashore."
Psalm 49:3 "My heart will speak words of leb (wisdom); the utterance from my leb (heart) will give leb (understanding)."
Proverbs 8:5 (KJV) "Oh ye simple, understand leb (wisdom); and, ye fools, be ye of an leb (understanding heart)."
Even though we've looked at Proverbs 24:3-4 now a couple of times, let us do it again.
The reason I keep hitting on this verse, is as women, one of the greatest calls upon our lives is that of our family. To truly be able to walk in His wisdom we will be able to have our homes established by His principles, and this passage puts it so beautifully. Yes, these studies (especially Chokmah) seem to speak of very powerful skills, most often applied to men (i.e. Solomon), but ladies, they are for us, too! As women, we nurture our families, support our husbands, and encourage those around us. How can we truly do that until we've sought after God with our whole heart, crying out to Him for wisdom, guidance, knowledge, understanding and insight?
Proverbs 24:3-4 "By Chokmah (wisdom) a house is built, and through Tabuwn (understanding) it is established; through da'ath (knowledge) its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures."
Well, dear ones, that wraps it up for now. Thank you for your comments on these studies! May you continue to grow in His grace.
