Ecclesiastes 7:12; Ecclesiastes 8:13 (New International Version)
Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: that wisdom preserves the life of its possessor.
Yet because the wicked do not fear God, it will not go well with them, and their days will not lengthen like a shadow.
