Proverbs 8:10–11; Proverbs 8:18–19; Proverbs 24:3–4

10  zTake my instruction instead of silver,

and knowledge rather than choice gold,

11  afor wisdom is better than jewels,

and ball that you may desire cannot compare with her.


18  nRiches and honor are with me,

oenduring wealth and orighteousness.

19  My fruit is pbetter than qgold, even fine gold,

and my yield than rchoice silver.


By ywisdom a house is built,

and by understanding it is established;

by knowledge the rooms are filled

with all zprecious and pleasant riches.
