Proverbs 8:35

For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the LORD.
– Proverbs 8:35

Finding wisdom hearkens back to the admonition to seek wisdom (Proverbs 2:1-5). Life is paired with the favor of the LORD and speaks of spiritual life more than mere physical existence. From the following verses, we know life and death are in view. While wisdom does bring material blessings to physical life (Proverbs 15:27; 16:15), there are greater blessings of life in the immaterial and spiritual sense (Proverbs 3:22; 10:16).
