14  vfor the gain from her is better than gain from silver

and her profit better than wgold.


10  zTake my instruction instead of silver,

and knowledge rather than choice gold,

11  afor wisdom is better than jewels,

and ball that you may desire cannot compare with her.


19  My fruit is pbetter than qgold, even fine gold,

and my yield than rchoice silver.


16  iHow much better to get wisdom than jgold!

To get understanding is to be chosen rather than ksilver.
