And the man who gains understanding.
14 For her aprofit is better than the profit of silver
And her gain better than fine gold.
And nothing you desire compares with her.
In her left hand are briches and honor.
17 Her aways are pleasant ways
And all her paths are bpeace.
18 She is a atree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who hold her fast.
