Proverbs 18:4

The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.  KJV


Psalms 78:2  I will open my mouth in a parable:  I will utter dark sayings of old

Psalms 49:4  I will incline mine ear to a parable:  I will open my dark saying upon the harp.

Matthew 13:35  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables;  I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

In the footnotes of The New Oxford Annotated Bible RSV(1977), the “deep waters” of a man’s mouth could be replaced by “unfathomable or dangerous:”  The words of a man’s mouth are unfathomable or dangerous.  In contrast, “the fountain of wisdom is a gushing stream”(RSV)  or “flowing brook”(KJV)  which the RSV  notes indicate could be read as the fountain of wisdom “refreshes.”  I.e.  The words of a man’s mouth are unfathomable or dangerous;  the fountain of wisdom refreshes.

There is a different take on the verse in Believer’s Bible Commentary(1995):  “Moffatt understands the verses as saying that the words of a wise man are a deep pool, a flowing stream, and a fountain of life.  They are profound, not shallow;  flowing, not brackish;  refreshing, not insipid”[p.837].

Either way you interpret the words, the Bible tells us in Proverbs 2:6  “For the Lord giveth wisdom:  out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding” and in James 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not;  and it shall be given him.”
