Proverbs 22:1

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.
Read Chapter 22

Ambrose of Milan

AD 397
A good name is more excellent than money, and good favor is better than heaps of silver. Faith itself redounds to itself, sufficiently rich and more than rich in its possession. There is nothing which is not the possession of the wise person except what is contrary to virtue, and wherever he goes he finds all things to be his. The whole world is his possession, since he uses it all as his own.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Good. Hebrew, "a name "or reputation. (Haydock) It is preferable to riches, but not to be compared with virtue, which is the only solid good; and even to be placed above riches, it must be well grounded. (Calmet) Favour with all. (Haydock)

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