Wisdom rests in the heart of a man of understanding, but it makes itself known even in the midst of fools Proverbs 14:33, NKJV). The knowledge and fear of the Lord are directly connected to wisdom. With the Lord’s wisdom residing in the heart of His servants, it is only “natural” (or should I say “spiritual”) that one will have understanding. With this understanding come clear thinking, and clear thinking gives a person a path easily seen to take. The fool, on the other hand, having none of this can’t help but the see the wisdom that belongs to another that is so much escaping him. Another perspective, in Ellicott’s Commentary, we read: “‘Wisdom rests in the heart of him that hath understanding;’ he does not care to drag it out and exhibit it, but the fool cannot keep to himself anything which he thinks he knows.” RT
