            “O hear ye this, all ye people: ponder it with your ears, all ye that dwell in the world; high and low, rich and poor, one with another: – My mouth shall speak of Wisdom: and my heart shall muse of Understanding. I will incline my ear to the parable: and shew my dark speech upon the harp.” (Ps. 49:1-4)


             “Hear my law, O my people: incline your ears unto the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable: I will declare hard sentences of old, which ye have heard and known, and such as our fathers have told us: that we should not hide them from the children of the generations to come.” (Ps. 78:1-4)


             “Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.” (Luke 11:28)
