Solomon's Respect for Wisdom
12So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. 13Return, O LORD! How long? Have pity on thy servants! 14Satisfy us in the morning with thy steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. 15Make us glad as many days as thou hast afflicted us, and as many years as we have seen evil. 16Let thy work be manifest to thy servants, and thy glorious power to their children. 17Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish thou the work of our hands upon us, yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
