How can I possess knowledge of witty inventions? Proverbs 8:12 says wisdom will give us knowledge of witty inventions. I believe this is the type of inventions that come to us by non textbook means. Witty means humorous, comic etc. This type of invention is also termed creative idea. It may not have been done this way before but it definitely will make sense when revealed to the world.
‘I wisdom dwell with prudence, I find out knowledge of witty inventions‘. Dwelling with prudence, being cautious, not acting hastily. Another version says Wisdom lives with insight and it acquires knowledge and foresight. So we need insight, knowledge and foresight. Wisdom acquires all these. Wisdom is also termed application of knowledge. Foresight is the ability to predict what will happen. It is also in a way linked to being cautious. I would also refer to as a discerning gift. Being able to discern good from bad decisions is very important in life.
