After listening to Proverbs, I have come to an understanding that wisdom (the understanding of how things work generally, including human relationships) includes physics and observational science. As the Bible uses this word, it assumes that wisdom begins with God (the author of wisdom and of all things) and we learn it by paying attention. For example, Solomon instructs the sluggard to observe the work of ants in collecting food. Solomon is employing the natural world for moral instruction. If the ant can collect food for lean times, then ought not we do the same? That is arguing from lesser to greater based on a natural truth. Solomon learned much wisdom by observing the order of God in the created world. Newton and Galileo also observed the same. Wisdom is more than knowing the right things to say, but in this ancient sense, to know why things are the way they are. This kind of wisdom does not begin with assuming we know better than God.
