Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance, an advantage to those who see the sun. 11 Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing and benefits those who see the sun.
12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money; and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it. 12 Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: that wisdom preserves the life of its possessor.
