    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:2

    haciendo estar atento tu oído a la sabiduría; si inclinares tu corazón a la prudencia;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. So that thou incline thine
    ear unto Wisdom , etc.] Hearken to Wisdom, that is, Christ; or rather to the instruction of Wisdom, which is the Gospel; so called, because it is the produce of divine wisdom, what the wisdom of man could never have devised, and which it opposes; and in which there is a most glorious display of the wisdom of God, in the justification and salvation of his people by Christ, ( 1 Corinthians 2:6,7); and is worth listening unto with the greatest attention, which is what is designed by this expression; [and] apply thine heart to understanding ; to a spiritual and experimental understanding of the Gospel, and the truths of it: for an inclination of the ear, without an application of the heart, which signifies the intenseness of the mind, an earnest and hearty desire after knowledge, will signify nothing; a hypocrite may seemingly hear with great attention, and show much affection, and yet his heart be after the world and the things of it, ( Ezekiel 33:31); (see <19B9112> Psalm 119:112).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - Those who earnestly
    seek heavenly wisdom, will never complain that the have lost their labour; and the freeness of the gift does not do awa the necessity of our diligence, Joh 6:27 Let them seek, and they shal find it; let them ask, and it shall be given them. Observe who are thu favoured. They are the righteous, on whom the image of God is renewed which consists in righteousness. If we depend upon God, and seek to his for wisdom, he will enable us to keep the paths of judgment.
