With Understanding Underneath

With understanding underneath then wisdom builds a house.

Then knowledge fills the rooms with pleasing treasures all around.


The warrior who’s wise will overmatch the one who’s strong,

and those who know will overthrow the stronger all day long.


Seek counsellors if warfare comes against you suddenly

The wisdom in their guidance will assure your victory. 


When wisdom is essential in discussions in a crowd

The talk is high and foolish ones had better shut their mouths.
