To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
– Proverbs 1:4
Knowledge means cunning or perception and is paired with discretion. The word for discretion means a purpose, plan, or plot. It can be used of a good plan or evil and so the context determines which. Here the discretion is good whereby the young man who attains it can wisely plan his way.
