Proverbs 8:18 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Ver. 12 follows Proverbs 8:11 equals Proverbs 3:15 as a justification of this estimating of wisdom above all else in worth. Regarding אני with Gaja, vid., the rule which the accentuation of this word in the three so-called metrical books follows in Merx' Archiv, 1868, p. 203 (cf. Baer's Torath Emeth, p. 40). We translate: ego sapientia involo sollertiam, for the verb שׁכן is construed with the accusative of the object, Proverbs 2:21; Proverbs 10:30; Proverbs 37:3 (cf. גוּר, Psalm 5:5), as well as with ב, Genesis 26:2, Psalm 69:37. Wisdom inhabits prudence, has settled down, as it were, and taken up her residence in it, is at home in its whole sphere, and rules it. Bertheau not unsuitably compares οἰκῶν with μόνος ἔχων, 1 Timothy 6:16. Regarding מזמּות, vid., Proverbs 1:4; Proverbs 5:2. It denotes well-considered, carefully thought out designs, plans, conclusions, and דּעת is here the knowledge that is so potent. This intellectual power is nothing beyond wisdom, it is in her possession on every occasion; she strives after it not in vain, her knowledge is defined according to her wish. Wisdom describes herself here personally with regard to that which she bestows on men who receive her.
