Draw Me to Your Heart
Scripture passages to explore for a deeper understanding of the above passage:
Job 28:28. Then he said to human beings, ‘wisdom?- that is fear of the Lord; Intelligence? avoidance of evil .’
Si 51:23. Come close to me, you ignorant, take your place in my school.
Pr 29:4. A king gives a country stability by justice, an extortioner brings it to ruin.
Si 10:1-3. A sagacious ruler educates his people, and he makes his subjects understand order. As the magistrate is, so will his officials be, as the governor is, so will be the inhabitants of his city. An undisciplined king will be the ruin of his people; a city owes its prosperity to the intelligence of its leading men. The government of the earth is in the hands of the Lord, he sets the right leader over it at the right time. Human success is in the hands of the Lord. He invests the scribe with honour.

Si 17:1. The Lord fashioned human beings from the earth to consign them back to it.
