direct your paths. Understanding shall bring you

hidden treasure for then you shall understand the fear
of the Lord.

her right hand, In her left hand riches and honor. Her
ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are

her, And happy are all who retain her. The LORD by
wisdom founded the earth; By understanding He
