Proverbs 3: 13–18 Revised Standard Version |
Happy is the man who finds wisdom,|
and the man who gets understanding,
for the gain from it is better than gain from silver|
and its profit better than gold.
She is more precious than jewels,|
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand;|
in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,|
and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;|
those who hold her fast are called happy.
