Proverbs 2:7

He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous; he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
– Proverbs 2:7

God is both the source and the guarantor of wisdom. He lays it up, stores it up so there is always wisdom in abundance. He is a shield. Wisdom is a shield to the upright. Verses 7-9 make it plain there is no acquiring of wisdom apart from walking uprightly. Divine wisdom is no intellectual trinket to be played with and looked at. Wisdom is sound instruction in the way of life.
