I am struck by a principle that I have recently taught on, but which I see within this passage again.

The verse says that, “if you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.” Notice that wisdom is the result of more than study. “If you turn at my reproof” is the key phrase. A behavioral change attracts greater wisdom.

This is a message that is consistent throughout scripture. Wisdom speaks, one responds with a turning or a new way of life; then wisdom comes in greater depth.

In a sense it might be described as follows: Call, Response, Understanding.
