Proverbs 8:17-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)

17 I will show my love to those who passionately love me.[a]
For they will search and search continually until they find me.
18 Unending wealth and glory
come to those who discover where I dwell.
The riches of righteousness and a long, satisfying life
will be given to them.[b]
19 What I impart has greater worth than gold and treasure,
and the increase I bring benefits more than a windfall of income.

Footnotes:

  1. Proverbs 8:17 Wisdom is not found by the halfhearted. One must love wisdom to gain it. A superficial desire will yield only a superficial knowledge.
  2. Proverbs 8:18 Or “riches and righteousness.” The phrase “a long, satisfying life” is from the Aramaic.
