Ephesians 1:15-23 ( KJV ) 15Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,  16Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;  17That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:  18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,  19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,  20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:  22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,  23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

2 Peter 1:20-21 ( KJV ) 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Isaiah 11:1-3 ( KJV ) 1And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:  2And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;  3And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

Proverbs 1:1-7 ( KJV ) 1The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;  2To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;  3To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;  4To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.  5A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:  6To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. 7The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 8:11-12 ( KJV ) 11For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. 12I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

Hebrews 11:1 ( KJV ) 1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Ephesians 5:9-21 ( KJV ) 9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)  10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.  11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.  13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.  14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.  15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,  16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;  19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;  20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

2 Timothy 1:7-9 ( KJV ) 7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  8Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;  9Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

1 John 2:15-17 ( KJV ) 15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
