1Wisdom reacheth from one end to another mightily: and sweetly doth she order all things. 2I loved her, and sought her out from my youth, I desired to make her my spouse, and I was a lover of her beauty. 3In that she is conversant with God, she magnifieth her nobility: yea, the Lord of all things himself loved her.4For she is privy to the mysteries of the knowledge of God, and a lover of his works. 5If riches be a possession to be desired in this life; what is richer than wisdom, that worketh all things? 6And if prudence work; who of all that are is a more cunning workman than she?
