Nor can silver be weighed out in exchange for it.+
16 It cannot be bought with gold of Oʹphir+

17 Gold and glass cannot be compared to it;
Nor can a vessel of fine* gold be exchanged for it.+
18 Coral and crystal are not worthy of mention,+
For a bagful of wisdom is worth more than one full of pearls.
