Get wisdom,1 get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;2 love her, and she will watch over you.37
Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all4 you have,a get understanding.58
Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.69
She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor.7"
Listen, my son,8 accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many.9
