The gain that comes from sageness
is superior to silver’s yield.
Wisdom’s profit is of greatness
more than any gold you wield.

Wisdom’s more precious than the accruals
of the earth’s most striking jewels.

Your desires can’t compare with her.
Her right hand holds long life.
In her left are wealth and honor.
She makes the greatest wife.

Her ways of pleasantness don’t cease.
All her paths are paths of peace,
She’s a tree of life, a place of rest,
those who keep her are called blessed.
