Bendita Sabedoria (Blessed Wisdom) – (Proverbs 1:20, 20:15, 4:7, 24:5, 3:13; Psalm 90:12) – Heitor Villa-Lobos
Proverbs 1:20, 20:15, 4:7, 24:5, 3:13; Psalm 90:12 [Portuguese]
20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets
15 There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
5 A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
