(Proverbs 3:13 KJV) Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
The vocabulary of the KJV is always good for a wake up. The KJV has “happy” (835) while the NASB has “blessed.” In usage across the Bible both translations use both terms interchangeably. I don’t think most of us do that. For me, happy is a feeling, a state of mind. Blessed is an actual condition. I can be one without the other.
I often use the term “happy fool” to designate young people who are irresponsible and immature but not mean spirited. I don’t think I would ever call anyone a “blessed fool.”
Wisdom will bless us. It might even make us happy. On the other hand the “understanding” (8394) that comes from wise insight might be troubling.
So? I would rather know than live in ignorance. I consider that a blessing.
