The value of wisdom (Prov 16:16-16:17)

“How much better to get wisdom than gold!

It is better to get understanding

Rather than choose silver.

The highway of the upright avoids evil.

Those who guard their way preserve their lives.”

Once again the value of wisdom outweighs that of gold and silver. It is better to have understanding than silver. Wisdom is greater than gold. The road of the upright avoids evil ways. The upright turn away from evil. They guard their life in order to preserve it.
