A wise person will listen and increase in learning,
and a discerning person will get wise guidance, Bible see other translations

“wise person.” Those who claim to be wise must continue to seek after wisdom through active listening and acquisition of guidance. There is no graduation from the growth process among the wise; learning and growth continue from birth to death. The REV has translated the Hebrew adjective chakam, wise, (#02450) as “wise person” to indicate that it is singular. If a person rejects the Word of Yahweh they are not a wise person no matter how much “worldly wisdom” they have; in the end they will end up dead in the Lake of Fire (Jer. 8:9; Rev. 20:11-15).
