Wisdom And Knowledge Shall Be The Stability Of Thy Times

If you’ve visited New York City and had a chance to stop by 30 Rockefeller Plaza you might have noticed the saying “wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times” over one of the main entrances. Ever wonder where that quote comes from?

The bible, Isaiah 33:6 to be exact. Most likely the King James Version.

I took this photo while visiting NYC in May of 2011. We did not go up to the observation deck but instead explored all that could be found in the plaza during a raining afternoon.

So do you agree that wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times? Also, do you think a building built today would have a bible verse over the door? (Not counting churches of course.) Either way, this makes for some very interesting art deco art.
