"Is it folly to be wise or not?" (Claim #E7383)
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1 Corinthians 1:19
See also: Proverbs 3:35; 10:14; 14:8; 16:16; 23:23; Ecclesiastes 9:16-18; James 1:15; and Genesis 3:6; Job 37:24
There are two types of wisdom: wisdom of God and wisdom of the world. 1 2 3 4 God will destroy the wisdom of this world, but will reward godly wisdom. Also, godly wisdom can cause earthly sorrow, but this does not make it foolish.
