It's telling us that hidden in Christ [who is the Word of God] are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. This means deep revelation, rich understanding and mature insight await those who seek into the Word after it.
The Bible says to seek after it. Literalism says 'don't bother looking'.
The literal meaning is all there is. This failure of literalism is starting to become very obvious. Now look here at what it says in 1 Corinthians 8:
1Co 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. We could easily rephrase this, without loosing any meaning, as follows.
If any man thinks he knows anything about the bible, by understanding the literal meaning, he knows nothing yet as he should. And nothing compared to what he could still learn from the Holy Spirit.
So it's up to us to keep on seeking.
