15 [Wisdom] is more precious than jewels, and all your desires cannot equal it.
16 Long life is in [wisdom's] right hand. In [wisdom's] left hand are riches and honor.
17 [Wisdom's] ways are pleasant ways, and all its paths lead to peace.
18 [Wisdom] is a tree of life for those who take firm hold of it. Those who cling to it are blessed.
