For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.
King James Bible
For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
American Standard Version
For by me thy days shall be multiplied, And the years of thy life shall be increased.
Young's Literal Translation
For by me do thy days multiply, And added to thee are years of life.
Proverbs 9:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For by me thy days shall be multiplied - Vice shortens human life, by a necessity of consequence: and by the same, righteousness lengthens it. There is a long addition here in the Septuagint, Syriac, and Vulgate: "He who trusts in falsity feeds on the winds; and is like him who chases the fowls of heaven. He forsakes the way of his own vineyard, and errs from the paths of his own inheritance. He enters also into lonely and desert places, and into a land abandoned to thirst; and his hands collect that which yieldeth no fruit."
