The Value of Wisdom

“How blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding.
For its profit is better than the profit of silver,
and its gain than fine gold.
She is more precious than jewels;
And nothing you desire compares with her.
Long life is in her right hand;
In her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are pleasant ways,
And all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who hold her fast”
 (Pro 3:13-18)

“Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding!
Do not forget, or turn away from the words of my mouth;
Do not forsake her, and she will guard you;
Love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom;
And with all your acquiring, get understanding.”
  (Pro 4:5-7)

“For wisdom is better than jewels;
And all desirable things cannot compare with her.” 
(Pro 8:11)

“How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!
And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.” 
(Pro 16:16)

“Wisdom is better than weapons of war,
but one sinner destroys much good.”
v(Ecc 9:18)

“If the axe is dull and he does not sharpen its edge,
then he must exert more strength.
Wisdom has the advantage of giving success.”
 (Ecc 10:10)

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.”
 (Psa 111:10)
