For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
– Proverbs 4:22
Wisdom keeps men from the destructiveness of the path of wickedness. Wisdom brings a wholeness and soundness to life on earth. Wisdom also brings spiritual life that delivers from death. Life and health are here seen as good rewards of wisdom and good reason to incline the ear, keep the sayings in the heart, and keep them before the eyes.
