Wisdom is a tree of life to whom?

Proverbs 3:13-18
New King James Version (NKJV)

13 Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding;
14 For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies,
And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand,
In her left hand riches and honor.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who retain her.

Wisdom is a tree of life to those who take hold of her

  • Jesus is the Tree of Life
  • Wisdom is not an object or Thing
  • Wisdom is a person
  • Jesus is our Wisdom
