Being independently wealthy or working for living–both can make life pleasant, but it is better to find treasure.
A man’s name can be preserved if he has children or he establishment a city, but finding wisdom is a better way.
Owning livestock and orchard will make you famous, but it is better to have a wife you love.
Wine and music can make you happy, but a happy marriage is even better.
Flutes and harp make fine music, but a pleasant voice is better than either.
Gracefulness and beauty please the eye, but not as much as new growth in the spring.
You can’t go wrong with a good friend or neighbor, but an intelligent wife is better than either.
Brothers and helpers are good in times of trouble, but it will be an even greater help if you have made a practice of giving to the poor.
Gold and silver provide security, but good advice is better.
Wealth and strength give confidence. When you fear the Lord you fear nothing more; it is all the support you need. He fear of the Lord is like rich garden of blessings; you would not want a more glorious shelter.
