and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver? the same thing is designed as before, expressed in different words; a spiritual understanding of Christ and the Gospel, and an experience of the grace of God; though some, as Gersom, think that wisdom is something better than understanding, as gold, to which it is preferred, is better than silver. The Septuagint render it,
"nests of wisdom, and nests of understanding;''
and the Arabic version,
"buds of wisdom, and buds of understanding.''
