Not that I say that it is not, but that is a treasure
that is subject to fire, water, kings, robbers, enemies and unwanted heirs.
But there are seven treasures that are not subject to such things. What seven?
The treasure of faith, virtue, conscientiousness, fear of blame, learning, generosity and wisdom. These seven are not subject to fire, water, kings, robbers, enemies and unwanted heirs.
