13  uHappy is the man that findeth wisdom,

And the man that getteth understanding.

14  For xthe merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver,

And the gain thereof than yfine gold.

15  She is more precious than zrubies:

And aall the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

16  bLength of days is in her right hand;

And in her left hand criches and honour.

17  dHer ways are ways of pleasantness,

And all her paths are peace.

18  She is ea tree of life to them that eelay hold upon her:

And happy is every one that retaineth her.

19  fThe Lord gby wisdom hath founded the earth;

gBy understanding hath he ||established the heavens.

20  By his knowledge hthe depths are broken up,

And ithe clouds drop down jthe dew.

21  My son, klet not them depart from thine eyes:

Keep lsound wisdom and mdiscretion:

22  So shall they be nlife unto thy soul,

And grace to thy oneck.

23  pThen shalt thou walk in thy way safely,

And qthy foot shall not stumble.

24  rWhen thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid:

Yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

25  sBe not afraid of sudden fear,

ssNeither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

26  For the Lord shall be thy confidence,

And shall tkeep thy foot from being taken.
