Geneva Study Bible
   1: Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold which they refine;
   2: Iron is taken out of the dust, and copper is molten out of the stone.
   3: [Man] putteth an end to the darkness, and exploreth to the utmost limit, the stones of darkness and of the shadow of death.
   4: He openeth a shaft far from the inhabitants [of the earth]: forgotten of the foot, they hang suspended; away below men they hover.
   5: As for the earth, out of it cometh bread, and underneath it is turned up as by fire;
   6: The stones of it are the place of sapphires, and it hath dust of gold.
   7: It is a path no bird of prey knoweth, and the vulture's eye hath not seen it;
   8: The proud beasts have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed over it.
   9: [Man] putteth forth his hand upon the flinty rock, he overturneth the mountains by the root.
   10: He cutteth out channels in the rocks, and his eye seeth every precious thing.
   11: He bindeth the streams that they drip not, and what is hidden he bringeth forth to light.
   12: But wisdom, where shall it be found? and where is the place of understanding?
   13: Man knoweth not the value thereof; and it is not found in the land of the living.
   14: The deep saith, It is not in me; and the sea saith, It is not with me.
   15: Choice gold cannot be given for it, nor silver be weighed for its price.
   16: It is not set in the balance with gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, and the sapphire.
   17: Gold and glass cannot be compared to it, nor vessels of fine gold be its exchange.
   18: Corals and crystal are no more remembered; yea, the acquisition of wisdom is above rubies.
   19: The topaz of Ethiopia shall not be compared to it, neither shall it be set in the balance with pure gold.
   20: Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
   21: For it is hidden from the eyes of all living, and concealed from the fowl of the heavens.
   22: Destruction and death say, We have heard its report with our ears.
   23: God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth its place:
   24: For he looketh to the ends of the earth, he seeth under the whole heaven.
   25: In making a weight for the wind, and meting out the waters by measure,
   26: In appointing a statute for the rain, and a way for the thunder's flash:
   27: Then did he see it, and declare it; he established it, yea, and searched it out;
   28: And unto man he said, Lo, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
