13 1How blessed is the man who finds wisdom And the man who gains understanding.
14 For her 2profit is better than the profit of silver And her gain better than fine gold.
15 She is 3more precious than jewels; And nothing * you desire compares with her.
16 4Long life is in her right hand; In her left hand are 5riches and honor.
17 Her 6ways are pleasant ways And all her paths are 7peace.
18 She is a 8tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who hold her fast.
