Proverbs 8:19

Context
NETBible

My fruit is better than the purest gold, 1  and what I produce 2  is better than choice silver.

XREF

Pr 3:14; Pr 8:10; Ec 7:12

NET © Notes

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

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.
