Ecclesiastes 7:11-12

ESV 11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance, an advantage to those who see the sun. NIV 11 Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing and benefits those who see the sun. ESV 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. NIV 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.
