“Receiue my instruction, and not siluer: and knowledge rather then choise gold.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. For my mouth shall speake truth, and wickednesse is an abomination to my lippes. 8. All the words of my mouth are in righteousnes, there is nothing froward or peruerse in them. 9. They are all plaine to him that vnderstandeth: and right to them that find knowledge. 10. Receiue my instruction, and not siluer: and knowledge rather then choise gold. 11. For wisedome is better then rubies: and all the things that may be desired, are not to be compared to it. 12. I wisedome dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inuentions. 13. The feare of the Lord is to hate euill: pride and arrogancie, and the euill way, and the froward mouth doe I hate.
