Is not wisdom found among the aged?
Does not long life bring understanding?
Job 12:12 (NIV)
Wisdom is, indeed, found among the aged.
Still, I’ve known many an old fool.
Long life does not necessarily bring understanding, Job.
But, it seems to me that suffering does. If it doesn’t break you.
I just can’t always perceive the increase of understanding when I’m still in the midst of the pain.
