Get wisdom,(A) get understanding;
    do not forget my words or turn away from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;(B)
    love her, and she will watch over you.(C)
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get[a] wisdom.
    Though it cost all(D) you have,[b] get understanding.(E)
Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
    embrace her, and she will honor you.(F)
She will give you a garland to grace your head
    and present you with a glorious crown.(G)
