THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

8:9(For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)

11:7Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?

11:8It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?

11:12For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.

28:12But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

28:13Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

28:20Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?

28:21Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.

36:26Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.

36:29Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?

37:5God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.

37:15Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

37:16Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

37:19Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.

37:23Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

139:6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

7:6For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,

7:7And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

7:8Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,

7:9In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

7:10And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

7:11(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:

7:12Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

7:13So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,

7:14I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.

7:15Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

7:16I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.

7:17I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

7:18Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

7:19For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:

7:20He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.

7:21With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.

7:22He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

7:23Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.

8:5O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.

9:14For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,

9:15To call passengers who go right on their ways:

9:16Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

9:17Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.

9:18But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

19:2Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.

20:24Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

22:3A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

27:1Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

27:12A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.

30:4Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

3:11He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

6:11Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?

6:12For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?

7:23All this have I proved by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.

7:24That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out?

8:6Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.

8:7For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?

8:17Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea further; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.

9:12For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

11:5As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

10:23O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.

John (Author John)

13:7Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

Acts (Author Luke)

1:7And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

17:23For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

17:30And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Romans (Author Paul)

8:24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

8:25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

8:26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

2:7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

2:8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

2:9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

2:10But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

3:19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

13:9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

13:12For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

James (Author James)

1:5If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

1:6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
