Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
because wisdom is protection as money is protection, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of its owner.

New American Standard Bible
For wisdom is protection [just as] money is protection, But the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the lives of its possessors.

King James Bible
For wisdom [is] a defence, [and] money [is] a defence: but the excellency of knowledge [is, that] wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
Parallel Verses
International Standard Version
Indeed, wisdom gives protection, just like money does, but it's better to know that wisdom gives life, to those who have mastered it.

American Standard Version
For wisdom is a defence, even as money is a defence; but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom preserveth the life of him that hath it.

Young's Literal Translation
For wisdom is a defense, money is a defence, And the advantage of the knowledge of wisdom is, She reviveth her possessors.
