Wisdom given as strength to a wise person is better than having ten powerful men in the city.
If someone's ax is blunt the edge isn't sharpened then more strength will be needed. Putting wisdom to work will bring success.
Indeed, wisdom gives protection, just like money does, but it's better to know that wisdom gives life, to those who have mastered it.
How much better than gaining gold is the acquisition of wisdom, the attainment of wisdom better than silver!
Keep in mind that wisdom is like that for your soul; if you find it, there will be a future for you, and what you hope for won't be cut short.
I concluded that wisdom is more useful than foolishness, just as light is more useful than darkness.
The words a man says are as deep waters a fountain of wisdom is an overflowing stream.
Anyone who has understanding is a fountain of life, but foolishness brings punishment to fools.
A poor but wise youth is better than an old but foolish king who will no longer accept correction.
However, the wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure, then peace-loving, gentle, willing to yield, full of compassion and good deeds, and without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy.
Whoever obtains wisdom loves himself, and whoever treasures understanding will prosper.
Don't even bother to mention coral and crystal wisdom is more valuable than a bag of rubies.
It cannot be compared to gold and fine glass crystal, nor can it be exchanged for gold-plated weaponry.
You can't buy it with gold, and its value cannot be calculated in silver.
It cannot be compared to gold from Ophir, with precious onyx, or with sapphire.
It can neither be compared with the topaz of Ethiopia nor valued in comparison to pure gold."
How joyful is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding,
She is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire compares with her.
because wisdom is better than precious gems and nothing you desire can compare to it."
So I concluded, "Wisdom is better than strength. Nevertheless, the wisdom of the poor is rejected his words are never heard."
Wisdom is better than weapons of war, and a single sinner can destroy a lot of good.
