13 Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who acquires understanding,
14 for she is more profitable than silver,
and her gain is better than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire compares with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 All her ways are pleasant,
and all her paths are peaceful
18 She is a tree of life for those who embrace her,
and those who lay hold of her are blessed.
