Proverbs 8:10-11

Context

8:10 Receive my instruction 1  rather than 2  silver,

and knowledge rather than choice gold.

8:11 For wisdom is better than rubies,

and desirable things cannot be compared 3  to her.

1 tn Heb “discipline.” The term refers to instruction that trains with discipline (e.g., Prov 1:2).

2 tn Heb “and not” (so KJV, NASB); NAB “in preference to.”

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