Reply to "The use of 'are' followed by of"

Hi, Diana, and welcome to the G.E,

@Diana Gaus posted:

I found a sentence like this: These benefits are of important values.

I was wondering why there should be 'of' after are?

I see that the sentence above is grammatically wrong. 'Be' of + a noun phrase is equivalent to 'be' + adj. 'Value' in this structure is used as an uncountable noun.
