2And ordained man through thy wisdom, that he should have dominion over the creatures which thou hast made, 3And order the world according to equity and righteousness, and execute judgment with an upright heart: 4Give me wisdom, that sitteth by thy throne; and reject me not from among thy children: 5For I thy servant and son of thine handmaid am a feeble person, and of a short time, and too young for the understanding of judgment and laws.6For though a man be never so perfect among the children of men, yet if thy wisdom be not with him, he shall be nothing regarded. 7Thou hast chosen me to be a king of thy people, and a judge of thy sons and daughters: 8Thou hast commanded me to build a temple upon thy holy mount, and an altar in the city wherein thou dwellest, a resemblance of the holy tabernacle, which thou hast prepared from the beginning.
