Where Does Wisdom Come From?

Proverbs 1:20–33 and 8:3–36 give the best articulated picture of wisdom in the Bible. Personified there as Lady Wisdom, this character was created by God long before His creation of the world—which she then aided in. After creation, she wanted nothing more than to be with humanity and help them to have full, truthful lives; but here Job explains that wisdom is now hidden. (The Voice Bible)

Job  28:1-12  “We all know how silver seams the rocks,we’ve seen the stuff from which gold is refined, We’re aware of how iron is dug out of the ground and copper is smelted from rock.Miners penetrate the earth’s darkness, searching the roots of the mountains for ore  digging away in the suffocating darkness.
Far from civilization, far from the traffic they cut a shaft  and are lowered into it by ropes.
Earth’s surface is a field for grain but its depths are a forge Firing sapphires from stones and chiseling gold from rocks. Vultures are blind to its rich hawks never lay eyes on it.Wild animals are oblivious to it  lions don’t know it’s there.Miners hammer away at the rock,  they uproot the mountains. They tunnel through the rock  and find all kinds of beautiful gems.They discover the origins of rivers,and bring earth’s secrets to light.
