Proverbs 3:13-16 English Standard Version (ESV)

Blessed Is the One Who Finds Wisdom

13 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
    and the one who gets understanding,
14 for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
    and her profit better than gold.
15 She is more precious than jewels,
    and nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
    in her left hand are riches and honor.

Proverbs 3:13-16 Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 
Happy [blessed, considered fortunate, to be admired] is the man who finds [skillful and godly] wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding and insight [learning from God’s word and life’s experiences],
14 
For wisdom’s profit is better than the profit of silver,
And her gain is better than fine gold.
15 
She is more precious than rubies;
And nothing you can wish for compares with her [in value].
16 
Long life is in her right hand;
In her left hand are riches and honor.
