    How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

    World English Bible

    How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! Yes, to get understanding is to be chosen rather than
    silver.

    Get wisdom, because it is better than gold: and purchase prudence, for it is more precious than
    silver.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    How much better is it to get wisdom than gold? and to get understanding rather to be chosen than

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:16

    ¶ Mejor es adquirir sabiduría que oro preciado; y adquirir inteligencia vale más que la plata.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 16:16

    Verse 16. How much better-to get
    wisdom than gold? ] Who believes this, though spoken by the wisest of men, under Divine inspiration?

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. How much better [is it] to get
    wisdom than gold ? etc.] To obtain and possess Christ, the fountain of wisdom, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, which treasures are infinitely preferable to thousands of gold and silver; to gain the knowledge of him, and of God in him, with which eternal life is connected, and in comparison of which all things are loss and dung; to have wisdom in the hidden part, or grace in the heart, which is much more precious than gold that perisheth; to have a spiritual experimental knowledge of the Gospel, and the truths of it, which are more to be desired than gold, yea, than fine gold; all which are to be got by diligent search and inquiry, by prayer and asking for, and to be had or bought without money and without price; and the getting of them is above all other gettings; such wisdom is more valuable in itself, has a greater intrinsic worth in it than gold; it is more profitable and useful, more solid and satisfying; it is not only better, but it is abundantly better, it is inexpressibly so; it cannot be well said how much better it is, and therefore it is put by way of question and admiration; see ( Proverbs 3:13-15 4:7); and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver ? the same thing is designed as before, expressed in different words; a spiritual understanding of Christ and the Gospel, and an experience of the grace of God; though some, as Gersom, think that wisdom is something better than understanding, as gold, to which it is preferred, is better than silver. The Septuagint render it, “nests of wisdom, and nests of understanding;” and the Arabic version, “buds of wisdom, and buds of understanding.”

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16 - There is
    joy and satisfaction of spirit, only in getting wisdom.
