13 oHappy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding;
14 pFor her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.
And qall the things you may desire cannot compare with her.
16 rLength of days is in her right hand,
In her left hand riches and honor.
17 sHer ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.
18 She is ta tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who 5retain her.
19 uThe Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
By understanding He established the heavens;
