Choice gold cannot be given for it, nor silver be weighed for its price. It is not set in the balance with gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, and the sapphire. Gold and glass cannot be compared to it, nor vessels of fine gold be its exchange. Corals and crystal are no more remembered; yea, the acquisition of wisdom is above rubies. The topaz of Ethiopia shall not be compared to it, neither shall it be set in the balance with pure gold. Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?

In making a weight for the wind, and meting out the waters by measure, In appointing a statute for the rain, and a way for the thunder's flash: Then did he see it, and declare it; he established it, yea, and searched it out; And unto man he said, Lo, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Forsake her not, and she shall keep thee; love her, and she shall preserve thee. The beginning of wisdom is, Get wisdom; and with all thy getting get intelligence. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee; she shall bring thee to honour when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thy head a garland of grace; a crown of glory will she bestow upon thee. Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of thy life shall be multiplied. I will teach thee in the way of wisdom, I will lead thee in paths of uprightness. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Take fast hold of instruction, let her not go: keep her, for she is thy life.
