    King James Bible - Proverbs 3:15

    She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

    World English Bible

    She is more precious than rubies. None of the things you can desire are to be compared to her.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 3:15

    She is more precious than all riches : and all the things that are desired, are not to be compared with her.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared to her.

    Original Hebrew

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:15

    Más preciosa es que las piedras preciosas; y todo lo que puedes desear, no se puede comparar a ella.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 3:15

    Verse 15. She is more precious than rubies ] µynynpm mippeninim. The word principally means
    pearls, but may be taken for precious stones in general. The root is hnp panah, he looked, beheld; and as it gives the idea of the eye always being turned towards the observer, Mr. Parkhurst thinks that it means the loadstone; see the note on Job xxviii. 18, where this subject is considered at large. If the oriental ruby, or any other precious stone, be intended here, the word may refer to their being cut and polished, so that they present different faces, and reflect the light to you in whatever direction you may look at them.

    All the things thou canst desire ] Superior to every thing that can be an object of desire here below. But who believes this?


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. She [is] more precious than rubies , etc.] Or “pearls” f68 , as some; which were formerly esteemed above all precious stones; the eastern were the more valuable f69 , which Solomon had most knowledge of; Christ is the pearl of great price, of more value than any pearl, or all put together, ( Matthew 13:46); (see Gill on “ Job 28:18”); or “carbuncles” f70 , as others. The Targum and Septuagint render it in general terms “precious stones”; and the Vulgate Latin version, “than all riches”; there is a beautiful gradation in this and ( Proverbs 3:14), wisdom is first preferred to silver, then to “fine gold” f71 , and here, to “precious stones” Christ is precious, exceeding precious in his names and titles, Messiah, Jesus, Immanuel, etc. in his divine nature, and the perfections of it, which show his condescension and grace to become a Saviour, assure of his ability to save, and render his mediatorial performances valuable; in his person as God and man; in the beauty, fulness, and fitness of it; in his power, wisdom, grace, etc. in his offices, his priestly office; in his satisfaction, his blood, righteousness, and sacrifice, are precious; in his intercession, which is ever acceptable and prevalent; in his prophetic office, his Gospel is precious, every truth and promise of it; in his kingly office, all his ordinances and appointments, his commandments are more to be loved than gold, yea, than fine gold; in all his relations and characters, and in everything that belongs to him; he is so to them that believe, and to none else; ( 1 Peter 2:7); these see the need and worth of him, receive much from him, and live upon him; and especially he is precious to them at first conversion; and so he is after desertions, and long absence; and under temptations and afflictions, losses and disappointments; and in the hour of death: and he is superlatively precious, “more precious than rubies”, or any precious stones; of a superior lustre and glory to them, being “the brightness of his Father’s glory”; and of more intrinsic worth and value, of greater price than any pearls, and more enriching to his possessors, for such possess all things; and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her ; this takes in a very great compass: there are many things that are very desirable, and the desires of man’s heart are very extensive, and not easily satisfied; there are the precious things of heaven, brought forth by the sun and moon; and the precious things of the earth, which are either upon it or in it, in the bowels of it, and upon the plains, and hills; but none of equal worth with Christ; there are many precious and excellent, and desirable persons in the world, neighbours, friends, relations, and acquaintance; saints on earth, and angels in heaven; yet none to be valued with Christ, and compared to him; (see Psalm 73:25).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-20 - No precious
    jewels or earthly treasures are worthy to be compared with true wisdom, whether the concerns of time or eternity be considered. We must make wisdom our business; we must venture all in it, and be willing to part with all for it. This Wisdom is the Lord Jesus Chris and his salvation, sought and obtained by faith and prayer. Were it no for unbelief, remaining sinfulness, and carelessness, we should fin all our ways pleasantness, and our paths peace, for his are so; but we too often step aside from them, to our own hurt and grief. Christ is that Wisdom, by whom the worlds were made, and still are in being happy are those to whom he is made of God wisdom. He has wherewithal to make good all his promises.
