The True Wealth

13

Happy are those who find wisdom,

and those who get understanding,

14

for her income is better than silver,

and her revenue better than gold.

15

She is more precious than jewels,

and nothing you desire can compare with her.

16

Long life is in her right hand;

in her left hand are riches and honor.

17

Her ways are ways of pleasantness,

and all her paths are peace.

18

She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;

those who hold her fast are called happy.

 

God’s Wisdom in Creation

19

The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;

by understanding he established the heavens;

20

by his knowledge the deeps broke open,

and the clouds drop down the dew.

The True Security

21

My child, do not let these escape from your sight:

keep sound wisdom and prudence,

22

and they will be life for your soul

and adornment for your neck.

23

Then you will walk on your way securely

and your foot will not stumble.

24

If you sit down, you will not be afraid;

when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
