It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price of it. It cannot be valued in [terms of] the gold of Ophir, in the precious onyx or beryl, or the sapphire. Gold and glass cannot equal [Wisdom], nor can it be exchanged for jewels or vessels of fine gold. No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal; for the possession of Wisdom is even above rubies or pearls. The topaz of Ethiopia cannot compare with it, nor can it be valued in pure gold.

Proverbs 2:4

If you seek [Wisdom] as for silver and search for skillful and godly Wisdom as for hidden treasures,

Proverbs 3:13-15

Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is the man who finds skillful and godly Wisdom, and the man who gets understanding [drawing it forth from God's Word and life's experiences], For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, and the profit of it better than fine gold.

Receive my instruction in preference to [striving for] silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold, For skillful and godly Wisdom is better than rubies or pearls, and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

Psalm 19:9-10

Psalm 119:72-127

The law from Your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.

I know, O Lord, that Your judgments are right and righteous, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me. Let, I pray You, Your merciful kindness and steadfast love be for my comfort, according to Your promise to Your servant. Let Your tender mercy and loving-kindness come to me that I may live, for Your law is my delight! Let the proud be put to shame, for they dealt perversely with me without a cause; but I will meditate on Your precepts. Let those who reverently and worshipfully fear You turn to me, and those who have known Your testimonies. Let my heart be sound (sincere and wholehearted and blameless) in Your statutes, that I may not be put to shame. My soul languishes and grows faint for Your salvation, but I hope in Your word. My eyes fail, watching for [the fulfillment of] Your promise. I say, When will You comfort me? For I have become like a bottle [a wineskin blackened and shriveled] in the smoke [in which it hangs], yet do I not forget Your statutes. How many are the days of Your servant [which he must endure]? When will You judge those who pursue and persecute me? The godless and arrogant have dug pitfalls for me, men who do not conform to Your law. All Your commandments are faithful and sure. [The godless] pursue and persecute me with falsehood; help me [Lord]! They had almost consumed me upon earth, but I forsook not Your precepts. According to Your steadfast love give life to me; then I will keep the testimony of Your mouth [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it]. Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [stands firm as the heavens]. Your faithfulness is from generation to generation; You have established the earth, and it stands fast. All [the whole universe] are Your servants; therefore they continue this day according to Your ordinances. Unless Your law had been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. I will never forget Your precepts, [how can I?] for it is by them You have quickened me (granted me life). I am Yours, therefore save me [Your own]; for I have sought (inquired of and for) Your precepts and required them [as my urgent need]. The wicked wait for me to destroy me, but I will consider Your testimonies. I have seen that everything [human] has its limits and end [no matter how extensive, noble, and excellent]; but Your commandment is exceedingly broad and extends without limits [into eternity]. Oh, how love I Your law! It is my meditation all the day. You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies, for [Your words] are ever before me. I have better understanding and deeper insight than all my teachers, because Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the aged, because I keep Your precepts [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them]. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep Your word [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it]. I have not turned aside from Your ordinances, for You Yourself have taught me. How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn [an oath] and have confirmed it, that I will keep Your righteous ordinances [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them]. I am sorely afflicted; renew and quicken me [give me life], O Lord, according to Your word! Accept, I beseech You, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, and teach me Your ordinances. My life is continually in my hand, yet I do not forget Your law. The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I do not stray from Your precepts. Your testimonies have I taken as a heritage forever, for they are the rejoicing of my heart. I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, even to the end. I hate the thoughts of undecided [in religion], double-minded people, but Your law do I love. You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word. Depart from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commandments of my God [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them]. Uphold me according to Your promise, that I may live; and let me not be put to shame in my hope! Hold me up, that I may be safe and have regard for Your statutes continually! You spurn and set at nought all those who stray from Your statutes, for their own lying deceives them and their tricks are in vain. You put away and count as dross all the wicked of the earth [for there is no true metal in them]; therefore I love Your testimonies. My flesh trembles and shudders for fear and reverential, worshipful awe of You, and I am afraid and in dread of Your judgments. I have done justice and righteousness; leave me not to those who would oppress me. Be surety for Your servant for good [as Judah was surety for the safety of Benjamin]; let not the proud oppress me. My eyes fail, watching for Your salvation and for the fulfillment of Your righteous promise. Deal with Your servant according to Your mercy and loving-kindness, and teach me Your statutes. I am Your servant; give me understanding (discernment and comprehension), that I may know (discern and be familiar with the character of) Your testimonies. It is time for the Lord to act; they have frustrated Your law. Therefore I love Your commandments more than [resplendent] gold, yes, more than [perfectly] refined gold.

Hebrews 11:26

He considered the contempt and abuse and shame [borne for] the Christ (the Messiah Who was to come) to be greater wealth than all the treasures of Egypt, for he looked forward and away to the reward (recompense).

Job 22:23-25

If you return to the Almighty [and submit and humble yourself before Him], you will be built up; if you put away unrighteousness far from your tents, If you lay gold in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brook [considering them of little worth], And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure,

Matthew 13:44-46

The kingdom of heaven is like something precious buried in a field, which a man found and hid again; then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field. Again the kingdom of heaven is like a man who is a dealer in search of fine and precious pearls, Who, on finding a single pearl of great price, went and sold all he had and bought it.
