Hebrew Bible, Job, 28.11-28.19


מִבְּכִי נְהָרוֹת חִבֵּשׁ וְתַעֲלֻמָהּ יֹצִא אוֹר׃He bindeth the streams that they trickle not; And the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.


וְהַחָכְמָה מֵאַיִן תִּמָּצֵא וְאֵי זֶה מְקוֹם בִּינָה׃But wisdom, where shall it be found? And where is the place of understanding?


לֹא־יָדַע אֱנוֹשׁ עֶרְכָּהּ וְלֹא תִמָּצֵא בְּאֶרֶץ הַחַיִּים׃Man knoweth not the price thereof; Neither is it found in the land of the living.


תְּהוֹם אָמַר לֹא בִי־הִיא וְיָם אָמַר אֵין עִמָּדִי׃The deep saith: ‘It is not in me’; And the sea saith: ‘It is not with me.’


לֹא־יֻתַּן סְגוֹר תַּחְתֶּיהָ וְלֹא יִשָּׁקֵל כֶּסֶף מְחִירָהּ׃It cannot be gotten for gold, Neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.


לֹא־תְסֻלֶּה בְּכֶתֶם אוֹפִיר בְּשֹׁהַם יָקָר וְסַפִּיר׃It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, With the precious onyx, or the sapphire.


לֹא־יַעַרְכֶנָּה זָהָב וּזְכוֹכִית וּתְמוּרָתָהּ כְּלִי־פָז׃Gold and glass cannot equal it; Neither shall the exchange thereof be vessels of fine gold.


רָאמוֹת וְגָבִישׁ לֹא יִזָּכֵר וּמֶשֶׁךְ חָכְמָה מִפְּנִינִים׃No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal; Yea, the price of wisdom is above rubies.


לֹא־יַעַרְכֶנָּה פִּטְדַת־כּוּשׁ בְּכֶתֶם טָהוֹר לֹא תְסֻלֶּה׃The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, Neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
