if you seek her like silver,
and search for her like hidden treasure, Bible see other translations

“hidden treasure.” In biblical times banks and safe places for money and valuables did not readily exist, so it was the custom for people to find hiding places for their valuables. This has turned out to be a boon for archaeologists and is one reason that wonderful and valuable things are regularly dug out of the earth.
