Choosing not to be ignorant, leads to intelligence by design.

“And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.” Jeremiah 3:15.


Understanding,   sachal; Strong’s #7919. To be wise, behave wisely; to understand, be instructed; to wisely consider; to be prudent and intelligent. Sachal illustrates the complex, intelligent thinking process that occurs when one observes, ponders, reasons, learns, and reaches a conclusion.

Sachal is sometimes translated as “prosper.” King David urged Solomon to be obedient to God’s instructions so that he could prosper (literally, “do wisely”) in all his ways.

A spin-off of this word is maschil, “to give instruction, to make wise and skillful.” There are thirteen instructive Psalms: 32;42;44;45;52;53;54;55;74;78;88;89;142; in the NKJV they are rendered “Contemplation” and are designed to make the reader wise.

    I will definitely have to give those Psalms a look see. I could use the wisdom.

    Thanks Manny.
