Proverbs 3:13-26 - Wisdom Brings Happiness

13 Blessed is the man that has found wisdom and who brings to light intelligence, 14 for the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver and the fruits thereof more than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than precious stones, and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand and in her left hand riches and honour. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to those that lay hold upon her, and blessed is every one that retains her. 19 The LORD by wisdom has founded the earth; by intelligence has he established the heavens. 20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the heavens drop down the dew. 21 My son, do not let them depart from thine eyes; keep sound wisdom and discretion, 22 so shall they be life unto thy soul and grace to thy neck. 23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. 24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. 25 Thou shall not be afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked when it comes. 26 For the LORD shall be thy confidence and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
