Proverbs 1:5
A wise man will hear and will increase learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsel
That the wise man may hear, and increase in learning; And that the man of understanding may attain unto sound counsels:
The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth],
The wise also will hear and increase in learning, and the person of understanding will acquire skill and attain to sound counsel [so that he may be able to steer his course rightly]—
A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
The wise hear them and grow in wisdom; those with understanding gain guidance.
Someone who is already wise will hear and learn still more; someone who already understands will gain the ability to counsel well;
If you are already wise, you will become even wiser. And if you are smart, you will learn to understand
He that is wise will hear, and will increase learning; and the intelligent will gain wise counsels:
A wise man shall hear and shall be wiser: and he that understandeth, shall possess governments.
Even the wise could become wiser by listening to these proverbs. They will gain understanding and learn to solve difficult problems.
Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance,
Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance,
Wise people can also listen and ·learn [add/increase teaching]; even ·they [L those with understanding] can find good ·advice in these words [guidance].
And wise man shall hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels,
a wise person will listen and continue to learn, and an understanding person will gain direction—
These proverbs can even add to the knowledge of the wise and give guidance to the educated,
a wise man will listen and increase his learning, and a discerning man will obtain guidance—
Wise people should also listen to them and learn even more. Even they can find good advice in these words.
Let the wise listen and increase their learning; let the person of understanding receive guidance
If the wise will hear them, doctrine shall increase, and the man of understanding shall acquire wise counsel:
A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
may the wise hear and increase learning, and the one who understands gain direction,
I want those already wise to become wiser and become leaders by exploring the depths of meaning in these nuggets of truth.”
These are the wise sayings of Solomon, David’s son, Israel’s king— Written down so we’ll know how to live well and right, to understand what life means and where it’s going; A manual for living, for learning what’s right and just and fair; To teach the inexperienced the ropes and give our young people a grasp on reality. There’s something here also for seasoned men and women, still a thing or two for the experienced to learn— Fresh wisdom to probe and penetrate, the rhymes and reasons of wise men and women.

a wise person will listen and continue to learn, and an understanding person will gain direction—
The wise by hearing them will advance in learning, the intelligent will gain sound guidance,
A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,
Wise people can also listen and learn; even they can find good advice in these words.
(Let the wise also hear and gain instruction, and let the discerning acquire guidance!)
Let wise people listen and add to what they have learned. Let those who understand what is right get guidance.
