20Therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth to a kingdom.
21If your delight be then in thrones and sceptres, O ye kings of the people, honour wisdom, that ye may reign for evermore.
22As for wisdom, what she is, and how she came up, I will tell you, and will not hide mysteries from you: but will seek her out from the beginning of her nativity, and bring the knowledge of her into light, and will not pass over the truth.
23Neither will I go with consuming envy; for such a man shall have no fellowship with wisdom.
24But the multitude of the wise is the welfare of the world: and a wise king is the upholding of the people.
25Receive therefore instruction through my words, and it shall do you good.
