Proverbs 3:13-26

Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare 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;
those who hold her fast will be blessed.

By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations,
by understanding he set the heavens in place;
by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
and the clouds let drop the dew.

My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
preserve sound judgment and discretion;
they will be life for you,
an ornament to grace your neck.
Then you will go on your way in safety,
and your foot will not stumble.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
Have no fear of sudden disaster
or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the LORD will be at your side
and will keep your foot from being snared.

  1. Thank you for posting this – I don’t know how many times I wander so far away from this wonderful wisdom. Thank you for bringing it back to me.

  2. THE ONLY THING THAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE IS WISDOM TO KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE WAY TO THE LORD IS TRUE HAPPINESS. NO JEWELS WE ADORN WILL MAKE US HAPPY.
