    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:3

    si clamares a la inteligencia, y a la prudencia dieres tu voz;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. Yea, if thou criest after
    knowledge , etc.] Of God, Christ, and the Gospel; not only bow the ear and bend the mind to these things, but importunately and fervently pray for them; not only attend the ministry of the word by men, but cry to God to give the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of divine and spiritual things; which supposes some sense of a want of it, an hearty desire for it, having some apprehension of the worth and value of it; and that it is to be had, as there is indeed great reason to hope for and expect it, ( James 1:5); [and] liftest up thy voice for understanding ; for Christ, who is understanding as well as wisdom, ( Proverbs 8:14); or rather for an understanding of the Gospel and the mysteries of it, which men do not naturally understand; and for which there must be an understanding given, or the eyes of the understanding must be enlightened; or Christ, by his spirit and grace, must open the understanding, that it may understand these things; which is granted to those who lift up their voice in prayer for it.

    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.
