Long life is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor.
"Riches and honor are with me, Enduring wealth and righteousness.
To endow those who love me with wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.
There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise, But a foolish man swallows it up.
The crown of the wise is their riches, But the folly of fools is foolishness.
"By your wisdom and understanding You have acquired riches for yourself And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.
And by knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches.
"By your great wisdom, by your trade You have increased your riches And your heart is lifted up because of your riches--
