Proverbs 8:11

Context

8:11 For wisdom is better than rubies,

and desirable things cannot be compared 5  to her.

1 tn Heb “all of your desires cannot compare with her.”

2 tn Heb “your desires.” The 2nd person masculine singular suffix on the noun probably functions as subjective genitive.

3 tn The imperfect tense verb יָסַד (yasad, “to establish be like; to resemble”) has a potential nuance here: “can be compared with.”

4 tn Heb “All of your desires do not compare with her.”

5 tn The verb יִשְׁווּ (yishvu, from שָׁוָה, shavah) can be rendered “are not comparable” or in a potential nuance “cannot be compared” with her.
