The Fountainhead of True Understanding

“In the Old Testament the Hebrew word for science is madda; its meaning is the discovery of the source of true knowledge and understanding. Madda is translated as science in Daniel 1:4 for the wise men of Babylon, and Daniel and his three God-fearing friends were the wisest of them all because they knew that source ― God and His Word! The Psalmist explains, Thou {God} through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they {commandments} are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: {Why?} for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients because I keep thy precepts–  Psalms 119:98-100. Could this be written any plainer? God’s Word is the source and fountainhead of true understanding, reason, and purpose of life itself.” ~LMJ~
