Proverbs 8:19-20

Context

8:19 My fruit is better than the purest gold, 1 

and what I produce 2  is better than choice silver.

8:20 I walk in the path of righteousness,

in the pathway of justice,

1 tn The two synonyms, “than gold, than fine gold” probably form a hendiadys here to express “the very finest gold.”

2 sn The language of the text with “fruit” and “ingathering” is the language of the harvest – what the crops yield. So the figure is hypocatastasis, comparing what wisdom produces to such crops.
