What does Proverbs 9:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 9:11

For by me thy days shall be multiplied
These are the words of Wisdom, and contain a reason and argument why her call and advice in the preceding verses should be listened unto, since she gives long life to her followers. She is a tree of life unto them, the author and giver of spiritual and eternal life; by means of her bread and her wine spiritual life is maintained, promoted, and preserved; and length of days, for ever and ever, is the gift of her right hand; see ( Proverbs 3:16 Proverbs 3:18 ) . The Targum is,

``for by it thy days shall be multiplied;''
which seems to refer it to the fear of the Lord, the beginning of wisdom, in ( Proverbs 9:10 ) , to which long life is attributed; see ( Proverbs 10:27 ) ; and the years of thy life shall be increased;
or, "they shall add years of life to thee" F15; wisdom and understanding, the fear of the Lord, and the knowledge of the Holy; if not in this world, yet in the world to come, which will be without end.
