Proverbs 8: 7-12 KJV:
7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
