And the man who gains understanding;
14 For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies,
And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand,
In her left hand riches and honor.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace. (Proverbs 3:13–17)
Verse 14 is a good example of Solomon’s use of personification joining wisdom with the picture of a human woman.
And her gain better than fine gold.
