Proverbs 8:10-12 American Standard Version (ASV)

10 Receive my instruction, and not silver;
And knowledge rather than choice gold.
11 For wisdom is better than rubies;
And all the things that may be desired are not to be compared unto it.

12 I wisdom have made prudence my dwelling,
And find out [a]knowledge and discretion.
