12So shall my works be acceptable, and then shall I judge thy people righteously, and be worthy to sit in my father's seat. 13For what man is he that can know the counsel of God? or who can think what the will of the Lord is? 14For the thoughts of mortal men are miserable, and our devices are but uncertain. 15For the corruptible body presseth down the soul, and the earthy tabernacle weigheth down the mind that museth upon many things.16And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with labour do we find the things that are before us: but the things that are in heaven who hath searched out? 17And thy counsel who hath known, except thou give wisdom, and send thy Holy Spirit from above? 18For so the ways of them which lived on the earth were reformed, and men were taught the things that are pleasing unto thee, and were saved through wisdom.
