Proverbs 16:16

How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
Read Chapter 16

Didymus the Blind

AD 398
As gold is better than silver, so wisdom is superior to prudence. The former pertains to knowledge, the latter to the interpretation of what is hidden. Either you can interpret the nests of wisdom as the churches or as the dwelling places of the holy ones in heaven. But wisdom itself is Christ. Commentary on the Proverbs of Solomon, Fragment

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Get. Septuagint, "the nests of wisdom. And the nests of prudence "or Churches of Christ, or places of education, may be intended. (Calmet)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
