Proverbs 3:13-18 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

The True Wealth

13 Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
    and the man who gets understanding,
14 for the gain from it is better than gain from silver
    and its 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.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
    and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
    those who hold her fast are called happy.
