Job 28

28:1 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold
 [where] they fine [it].
28:2 Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass [is] melted [out
 of] the stone.
28:3 He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all
 perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shades of death.
28:4 The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant: [even the
 waters] forgotten by the foot: they are dried up, they have
 gone away from men.
28:5 [As for] the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is
 turned up as it were fire.
28:6 The stones of it [are] the place of sapphires: and it hath
 dust of gold.
28:7 [There is] a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the
 vultur's eye hath not seen:
28:8 The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion
 passed by it.
28:9 He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the
 mountains by the roots.
28:10 He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth
 every precious thing.
28:11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and [the thing
 that is] hid he bringeth forth to light.
28:12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where [is] the place
 of understanding?
28:13 Man knoweth not the price of it; neither is it found in
 the land of the living.
28:14 The depth saith, It [is] not in me: and the sea saith, [It
 is] not with me.
28:15 It cannot be obtained for gold, neither shall silver be
 weighed [for] the price of it.
28:16 It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the
 precious onyx, or the sapphire.
28:17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange
 of it [shall not be for] jewels of fine gold.
28:18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the
 price of wisdom [is] above rubies.
28:19 The topaz of Cush shall not equal it, neither shall it be
 valued with pure gold.
28:20 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where [is] the place of
28:21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept
 close from the fowls of the air.
28:22 Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame of it
 with our ears.
28:23 God understandeth the way of it, and he knoweth its place.
28:24 For he looketh to the ends of the earth, [and] seeth under
 the whole heaven;
28:25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the
 waters by measure.
28:26 When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the
 lightning of the thunder:
28:27 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea,
 and searched it out.
28:28 And to man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that
 [is] wisdom; and to depart from evil [is] understanding.
