Then, you should be able to find the right path for wisdom will enter your heart; and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul, as understanding guards the way.

The righteous walk the paths of the Lord and the prophets act in truth so as to sing to the Lord and glorify His name.

Isn't there a Cherub angel that guards the way?

2 Timothy 3:16-17, Matthew 4:4, and 1 Peter 2:2 (among a ton of others) are what I typically reference when somebody asks about this

When reading the OT, I always try to read it 1) from the perspective of God / Christ, 2) from an understanding that we are no longer under this covenant, and 3) as a pre-cursor to Christ and everything that he did (his atoning sacrifice, his removal of said covenant, his imputed righteousness, his resurrection and ascension, etc.)

Try reading it as a compendium of perceptions of men about God

The story of Jesus is seen throughout the OT.

It's especially so if we assume 'The Word' is Jesus.
