away understanding from wise people.
| "He removes the speech of the
trusted ones. He takes away the understanding of
the old." (Iyov 12:20)
There are some people who are very trustworthy
and speak very clearly. There are some people who
speak with deep understanding. (Ralbag) When a
person relies on his own wisdom and his own
speech, and does not need Hashem, then Hashem
will take away His wisdom and His speech. All
speech is a gift from Hashem.
