[a]Who is like the wise person,
    and who knows the explanation of things?
Wisdom illumines the face
    and transforms a grim countenance.

Footnotes:

  1. 8:1–4 The author continues to quote traditional wisdom but then to counter and qualify it. He concedes wisdom’s advantages (v. 1), but then describes the subservience and sometimes demeaning demands required of the sage in the court of the king (vv. 2–4).
