    I don't get how some of you would put understanding before wisdom.

    the foundation in knowledge.

    the application of this knowledge is wisdom.
    (a wise man does wise things while stupid is as stupid does)

    knowing when to apply one's knowledge (knowing when and how to act) is understanding.

    how could it be otherwise?

    In the Bible, Solomon is considered the wisest of them all. He knew the law (knowledge) and he sought wisdom. How could Solomon have gained understanding without wisdom?
    weep for lost babylon,
    the bleeding god, the forgotten sheep slaughtered in a forest of evil fog
    bordered by a sea of faults,
    fleeing mobs turn to see the holocaust and become kings and queens of salt
    screaming shots, police and chalk,
    wingless fallen demons walking among us as people...
