Sirach 6

Sir 6:18  My son, from thy youth up receive instruction, and even to thy grey hairs thou shalt find wisdom.
Sir 6:19  Come to her as one that plougheth, and soweth, and wait for her good fruits:
Sir 6:20  For in working about her thou shalt labour a little, and shalt quickly eat of her fruits.
Sir 6:21  How very unpleasant is wisdom to the unlearned, and the unwise will not continue with her.
Sir 6:22  She shall be to them as a mighty stone of trial, and they will cast her from them before it be long.
Sir 6:23  For the wisdom of doctrine is according to her name, and she is not manifest unto many, but with them to whom she is known, she continueth even to the sight of God.

Here we're back to wisdom again, one of my favorite topics and found in many places in the Bible.
