15 For justice is perpetual and immortal, 16 But the wicked with works and words have called it to them and. esteeming it a friend have fallen away and have made a covenant with it. because they are worthy to be of the part thereof, 1 For they have said reasoning with themselves but not right The time of. our life is short and tedious and in the end of a man there is no remedy. and no man hath been known to have returned from hell. 2 For we are born of nothing and after this we shall be as if we had not. been for the breath in our nostrils is smoke and speech a spark to move. 3 Which being put out our body shall be ashes and our spirit shall be. poured abroad as soft air and our life shall pass away as the trace of a. cloud and shall be dispersed as a mist which is driven away by the beams. of the sun and overpowered with the heat thereof, 4 And our name in time shall be forgotten and no man shall have any. remembrance of our works, 5 For our time is as the passing of a shadow and there is no going back of. our end for it is fast sealed and no man returneth. 6 Come therefore and let us enjoy the good things that are present and let. us speedily use the creatures as in youth, 7 Let us fill ourselves with costly wine and ointments and let not the.
flower of the time pass by us, 8 Let us crown ourselves with roses before they be withered let no meadow. escape our riot, 9 Let none of us go without his part in luxury let us everywhere leave. tokens of joy for this is our portion and this our lot. 10 Let us oppress the poor just man and not spare the widow nor honour the. ancient grey hairs of the aged, 11 But let our strength be the law of justice for that which is feeble is found. to be nothing worth, 12 Let us therefore lie in wait for the just because he is not for our turn and. he is contrary to our doings and upbraideth us with transgressions of the. law and divulgeth against us the sins of our way of life. 13 He boasteth that he hath the knowledge of God and calleth himself the. son of God,14 He is become a censurer of our thoughts.
15 He is grievous unto us even to behold for his life is not like other men s. and his ways are very different, 16 We are esteemed by him as triflers and he abstaineth from our ways as. from filthiness and he preferreth the latter end of the just and glorieth that. he hath God for his father, 17 Let us see then if his words be true and let us prove what shall happen to. him and we shall know what his end shall be, 18 For if he be the true son of God he will defend him and will deliver him. from the hands of his enemies, 19 Let us examine him by outrages and tortures that we may know his. meekness and try his patience, 20 Let us condemn him to a most shameful death for there shall be respect.
had unto him by his words, 21 These things they thought and were deceived for their own malice. blinded them, 22 And they knew not the secrets of God nor hoped for the wages of justice. nor esteemed the honour of holy souls, 23 For God created man incorruptible and to the image of his own likeness. he made him, 24 But by the envy of the devil death came into the world. 25 And they follow him that are of his side, 1 But the souls of the just are in the hand of God and the torment of death.
shall not touch them, 2 In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die and their departure was. taken for misery, 3 And their going away from us for utter destruction but they are in peace. 4 And though in the sight of men they suffered torments their hope is full of. immortality, 5 Afflicted in few things in many they shall be well rewarded because God. hath tried them and found them worthy of himself, 6 As gold in the furnace he hath proved them and as a victim of a holocaust. he hath received them and in time there shall be respect had to them. 7 The just shall shine and shall run to and fro like sparks among the reeds. 8 They shall judge nations and rule over people and their Lord shall reign. 9 They that trust in him shall understand the truth and they that are faithful. in love shall rest in him for grace and peace is to his elect. 10 But the wicked shall be punished according to their own devices who. have neglected the just and have revolted from the Lord. 11 For he that rejecteth wisdom and discipline is unhappy and their hope is. vain and their labours without fruit and their works unprofitable. 12 Their wives are foolish and their children wicked. 13 Their offspring is cursed for happy is the barren and the undefiled that. hath not known bed in sin she shall have fruit in the visitation of holy. 14 And the eunuch that hath not wrought iniquity with his hands nor thought. wicked things against God for the precious gift of faith shall be given to. him and a most acceptable lot in the temple of God. 15 For the fruit of good labours is glorious and the root of wisdom never. 16 But the children of adulterers shall not come to perfection and the seed of. the unlawful bed shall be rooted out, 17 And if they live long they shall be nothing regarded and their last old age.
shall be without honour, 18 And if they die quickly they shall have no hope nor speech of comfort in. the day of trial,19 For dreadful are the ends of a wicked race. 1 O how beautiful is the chaste generation with glory for the memory. thereof is immortal because it is known both with God and with men. 2 When it is present they imitate it and they desire it when it hath. withdrawn itself and it triumpheth crowned for ever winning the reward. of undefiled conflicts, 3 But the multiplied brood of the wicked shall not thrive and bastard slips. shall not take deep root nor any fast foundation, 4 And if they flourish in branches for a time yet standing not fast they shall. be shaken with the wind and through the force of winds they shall be. rooted out, 5 For the branches not being perfect shall be broken and their fruits shall.
be unprofitable and sour to eat and fit for nothing. 6 For the children that are born of unlawful beds are witnesses of. wickedness against their parents in their trial, 7 But the just man if he be prevented with death shall be in rest. 8 For venerable old age is not that of long time nor counted by the number. of years but the understanding of a man is grey hairs. 9 And a spotless life is old age, 10 He pleased God and was beloved and living among sinners he was. translated, 11 He was taken away lest wickedness should alter his understanding or. deceit beguile his soul, 12 For the bewitching of vanity obscureth good things and the wandering of. concupiscence overturneth the innocent mind, 13 Being made perfect in a short space he fulfilled a long time.
14 For his soul pleased God therefore he hastened to bring him out of the. midst of iniquities but the people see this and understand not nor lay up. such things in their hearts, 15 That the grace of God and his mercy is with his saints and that he hath. respect to his chosen, 16 But the just that is dead condemneth the wicked that are living and youth. soon ended the long life of the unjust, 17 For they shall see the end of the wise man and shall not understand what. God hath designed for him and why the Lord hath set him in safety. 18 They shall see him and shall despise him but the Lord shall laugh them to. 19 And they shall fall after this without honour and be a reproach among the. dead for ever for he shall burst them puffed up and speechless and shall. shake them from the foundations and they shall be utterly laid waste they. shall be in sorrow and their memory shall perish, 20 They shall come with fear at the thought of their sins and their iniquities. shall stand against them to convict them, 1 Then shall the just stand with great constancy against those that have.
afflicted them and taken away their labours, 2 These seeing it shall be troubled with terrible fear and shall be amazed at. the suddenness of their unexpected salvation, 3 Saying within themselves repenting and groaning for anguish of spirit. These are they whom we had some time in derision and for a parable of. 4 We fools esteemed their life madness and their end without honour. 5 Behold how they are numbered among the children of God and their lot is. among the saints, 6 Therefore we have erred from the way of truth and the light of justice. hath not shined unto us and the sun of understanding hath not risen upon. 7 We wearied ourselves in the way of iniquity and destruction and have. walked through hard ways but the way of the Lord we have not known. 8 What hath pride profited us or what advantage hath the boasting of riches. brought us, 9 All those things are passed away like a shadow and like a post that. runneth on, 10 And as a ship that passeth through the waves whereof when it is gone by.
the trace cannot be found nor the path of its keel in the waters. 11 Or as when a bird flieth through the air of the passage of which no mark. can be found but only the sound of the wings beating the light air and. parting it by the force of her flight she moved her wings and hath flown. through and there is no mark found afterwards of her way. 12 Or as when an arrow is shot at a mark the divided air presently cometh. together again so that the passage thereof is not known. 13 So we also being born forthwith ceased to be and have been able to shew. no mark of virtue but are consumed in our wickedness. 14 Such things as these the sinners said in hell, 15 For the hope of the wicked is as dust which is blown away with the wind. and as a thin froth which is dispersed by the storm and a smoke that is. scattered abroad by the wind and as the remembrance of a guest of one. day that passeth by, 16 But the just shall live for evermore and their reward is with the Lord and. the care of them with the most High, 17 Therefore shall they receive a kingdom of glory and a crown of beauty at. the hand of the Lord for with his right hand he will cover them and with. his holy arm he will defend them, 18 And his zeal will take armour and he will arm the creature for the revenge. of his enemies, 19 He will put on justice as a breastplate and will take true judgment instead.
of a helmet,20 He will take equity for an invincible shield. 21 And he will sharpen his severe wrath for a spear and the whole world. shall fight with him against the unwise, 22 Then shafts of lightning shall go directly from the clouds as from a bow. well bent they shall be shot out and shall fly to the mark. 23 And thick hail shall be cast upon them from the stone casting wrath the. water of the sea shall rage against them and the rivers shall run together in. a terrible manner, 24 A mighty wind shall stand up against them and as a whirlwind shall. divide them and their iniquity shall bring all the earth to a desert and. wickedness shall overthrow the thrones of the mighty. 1 Wisdom is better than strength and a wise man is better than a strong. 2 Hear therefore ye kings and understand learn ye that are judges of the. ends of the earth, 3 Give ear you that rule the people and that please yourselves in multitudes. of nations, 4 For power is given you by the Lord and strength by the most High who.
will examine your works and search out your thoughts. 5 Because being ministers of his kingdom you have not judged rightly nor. kept the law of justice nor walked according to the will of God. 6 Horribly and speedily will he appear to you for a most severe judgment. shall be for them that bear rule, 7 For to him that is little mercy is granted but the mighty shall be mightily. 8 For God will not except any man s person neither will he stand in awe of. any man s greatness for he made the little and the great and he hath. equally care of all, 9 But a greater punishment is ready for the more mighty. 10 To you therefore O kings are these my words that you may learn. wisdom and not fall from it, 11 For they that have kept just things justly shall be justified and they that. have learned these things shall find what to answer. 12 Covet ye therefore my words and love them and you shall have. instruction, 13 Wisdom is glorious and never fadeth away and is easily seen by them. that love her and is found by them that seek her, 14 She preventeth them that covet her so that she first sheweth herself unto.
15 He that awaketh early to seek her shall not labour for he shall find her. sitting at his door, 16 To think therefore upon her is perfect understanding and he that watcheth. for her shall quickly be secure, 17 For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her and she sheweth. herself to them cheerfully in the ways and meeteth them with all. providence, 18 For the beginning of her is the most true desire of discipline. 19 And the care of discipline is love and love is the keeping of her laws and. the keeping of her laws is the firm foundation of incorruption. 20 And incorruption bringeth near to God, 21 Therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth to the everlasting kingdom. 22 If then your delight be in thrones and sceptres O ye kings of the people. love wisdom that you may reign for ever, 23 Love the light of wisdom all ye that bear rule over peoples.
24 Now what wisdom is and what was her origin I will declare and I will. not hide from you the mysteries of God but will seek her out from the. beginning of her birth and bring the knowledge of her to light and will. not pass over the truth, 25 Neither will I go with consuming envy for such a man shall not be. partaker of wisdom, 26 Now the multitude of the wise is the welfare of the whole world and a. wise king is the upholding of the people, 27 Receive therefore instruction by my words and it shall be profitable to. 1 I myself also am a mortal man like all others and of the race of him that. was first made of the earth and in the womb of my mother I was. fashioned to be flesh, 2 In the time of ten months I was compacted in blood of the seed of man. and the pleasure of sleep concurring, 3 And being born I drew in the common air and fell upon the earth that is.
made alike and the first voice which I uttered was crying as all others do. 4 I was nursed in swaddling clothes and with great cares. 5 For none of the kings had any other beginning of birth. 6 For all men have one entrance into life and the like going out. 7 Wherefore I wished and understanding was given me and I called upon. God and the spirit of wisdom came upon me, 8 And I preferred her before kingdoms and thrones and esteemed riches. nothing in comparison of her, 9 Neither did I compare unto her any precious stone for all gold in. comparison of her is as a little sand and silver in respect to her shall be. counted as clay, 10 I loved her above health and beauty and chose to have her instead of light. for her light cannot be put out, 11 Now all good things came to me together with her and innumerable riches. through her hands, 12 And I rejoiced in all these for this wisdom went before me and I knew.
not that she was the mother of them all, 13 Which I have learned without guile and communicate without envy and. her riches I hide not, 14 For she is an infinite treasure to men which they that use become the. friends of God being commended for the gift of discipline. 15 And God hath given to me to speak as I would and to conceive thoughts. worthy of those things that are given me because he is the guide of. wisdom and the director of the wise, 16 For in his hand are both we and our words and all wisdom and the. knowledge and skill of works, 17 For he hath given me the true knowledge of the things that are to know. the disposition of the whole world and the virtues of the elements. 18 The beginning and ending and midst of the times the alterations of their. courses and the changes of seasons, 19 The revolutions of the year and the dispositions of the stars.
20 The natures of living creatures and rage of wild beasts the force of winds. and reasonings of men the diversities of plants and the virtues of roots. 21 And all such things as are hid and not foreseen I have learned for. wisdom which is the worker of all things taught me. 22 For in her is the spirit of understanding holy one manifold subtile. eloquent active undefiled sure sweet loving that which is good quick. which nothing hindereth beneficent, 23 Gentle kind steadfast assured secure having all power overseeing all. things and containing all spirits intelligible pure subtile. 24 For wisdom is more active than all active things and reacheth everywhere. by reason of her purity, 25 For she is a vapour of the power of God and a certain pure emanation of. the glory of the almighty God and therefore no defiled thing cometh into. 26 For she is the brightness of eternal light and the unspotted mirror of God s. majesty and the image of his goodness, 27 And being but one she can do all things and remaining in herself the. same she reneweth all things and through nations conveyeth herself into. holy souls she maketh the friends of God and prophets. 28 For God loveth none but him that dwelleth with wisdom. 29 For she is more beautiful than the sun and above all the order of the stars. being compared with the light she is found before it. 30 For after this cometh night but no evil can overcome wisdom. 1 She reacheth therefore from end to end mightily and ordereth all things. 2 Her have I loved and have sought her out from my youth and have. desired to take her for my spouse and I became a lover of her beauty. 3 She glorifieth her nobility by being conversant with God yea and the Lord. of all things hath loved her, 4 For it is she that teacheth the knowledge of God and is the chooser of his. 5 And if riches be desired in life what is richer than wisdom which maketh. all things, 6 And if sense do work who is a more artful worker than she of those things.
7 And if a man love justice her labours have great virtues for she teacheth. temperance and prudence anad justice and fortitude which are such. things as men can have nothing more profitable in life. 8 And if a man desire much knowledge she knoweth things past and. judgeth of things to come she knoweth the subtilties of speeches and the. solutions of arguments she knoweth signs and wonders before they be. done and the events of times and ages, 9 I purposed therefore to take her to me to live with me knowing that she. will communicate to me of her good things and will be a comfort in my. cares and grief, 10 For her sake I shall have glory among the multitude and honour with the. ancients though I be young, 11 And I shall be found of a quick conceit in judgment and shall be admired. in the sight of the mighty and the faces of princes shall wonder at me. 12 They shall wait for me when I hold my peace and they shall look upon me. when I speak and if I talk much they shall lay their hands on their mouths. 13 Moreover by the means of her I shall have immortality and shall leave. behind me an everlasting memory to them that come after me. 14 I shall set the people in order and nations shall be subject to me. 15 Terrible kings hearing shall be afraid of me among the multitude I shall. be found good and valiant in war, 16 When I go into my house I shall repose myself with her for her. conversation hath no bitterness nor her company any tediousness but joy. and gladness, 17 Thinking these things with myself and pondering them in my heart that.
to be allied to wisdom is immortality, 18 And that there is great delight in her friendship and inexhaustible riches in. the works of her hands and in the exercise of conference with her. wisdom and glory in the communication of her words I went about. seeking that I might take her to myself, 19 And I was a witty child and had received a good soul. 20 And whereas I was more good I came to a body undefiled. 21 And as I knew that I could not otherwise be continent except God gave it. and this also was a point of wisdom to know whose gift it was I went to. the Lord and besought him and said with my whole heart. 1 God of my fathers and Lord of mercy who hast made all things with thy. 2 And by thy wisdom hast appointed man that he should have dominion. over the creature that was made by thee, 3 That he should order the world according to equity and justice and. execute justice with an upright heart, 4 Give me wisdom that sitteth by thy throne and cast me not off from. among thy children, 5 For I am thy servant and the son of thy handmaid a weak man and of.
short time and falling short of the understanding of judgment and laws. 6 For if one be perfect among the children of men yet if thy wisdom be not. with him he shall be nothing regarded, 7 Thou hast chosen me to be king of thy people and a judge of thy sons and. 8 And hast commanded me to build a temple on thy holy mount and an altar. in the city of thy dwelling place a resemblance of thy holy tabernacle. which thou hast prepared from the beginning, 9 And thy wisdom with thee which knoweth thy works which then also. was present when thou madest the world and knew what was agreeable to. thy eyes and what was right in thy commandments, 10 Send her out of thy holy heaven and from the throne of thy majesty that. she may be with me and may labour with me that I may know what is. acceptable with thee, 11 For she knoweth and understandeth all things and shall lead me soberly in. my works and shall preserve me by her power, 12 So shall my works be acceptable and I shall govern thy people justly and.
shall be worthy of the throne of my father, 13 For who among men is he that can know the counsel of God or who can. think what the will of God is, 14 For the thoughts of mortal men are fearful and our counsels uncertain. 15 For the corruptible body is a load upon the soul and the earthly habitation. presseth down the mind that museth upon many things. 16 And 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 shall search out, 17 And who shall know thy thought except thou give wisdom and send thy. Holy Spirit from above, 18 And so the ways of them that are upon earth may be corrected and men. may learn the things that please thee, 19 For by wisdom they were healed whosoever have pleased thee O Lord.
from the beginning,Chapter 10, 1 She preseved him that was first formed by God the father of the world. when he was created alone, 2 And she brought him out of his sin and gave him power to govern all. 3 But when the unjust went away from her in his anger he perished by the. fury wherewith he murdered his brother, 4 For whose cause when water destroyed the earth wisdom healed it again. directing the course of the just by contemptible wood. 5 Moreover when the nations had conspired together to consent to. wickedness she knew the just and preserved him without blame to God. and kept him strong against the compassion for his son. 6 She delivered the just man who fled from the wicked that were perishing. when the fire came down upon Pentapolis, 7 Whose land for a testimony of their wickedness is desolate and smoketh. to this day and the trees bear fruits that ripen not and a standing pillar of. salt is a monument of an incredulous soul, 8 For regarding not wisdom they did not only slip in this that they were.
ignorant of good things but they left also unto men a memorial of their. folly so that in the things in which they sinned they could not so much as. 9 But wisdom hath delivered from sorrow them that attend upon her. 10 She conducted the just when he fled from his brother s wrath through the. right ways and shewed him the kingdom of God and gave him the. knowledge of the holy things made him honourable in his labours and. accomplished his labours, 11 In the deceit of them that overreached him she stood by him and made. him honourable, 12 She kept him safe from his enemies and she defended him from seducers. and gave him a strong conflict that he might overcome and know that. wisdom is mightier than all, 13 She forsook not the just when he was sold but delivered him from sinners. she went down with him into the pit, 14 And in bands she left him not till she brought him the sceptre of the. kingdom and power against those that oppressed him and shewed them. to be liars that had accused him and gave him everlasting glory. 15 She delivered the just people and blameless seed from the nations that. oppressed them, 16 She entered into the soul of the servant of God and stood against dreadful.
kings in wonders and signs, 17 And she rendered to the just the wages of their labours and conducted. them in a wonderful way and she was to them for a covert by day and for. the light of stars by night, 18 And she brought them through the Red Sea and carried them over through. a great water, 19 But their enemies she drowned in the sea and from the depth of hell she. brought them out Therefore the just took the spoils of the wicked. 20 And they sung to thy holy name O Lord and they praised with one accord. thy victorious hand, 21 For wisdom opened the mouth of the dumb and made the tongues of. infants eloquent,Chapter 11, 1 She prospered their works in the hands of the holy prophet.
2 They went through wildernesses that were not inhabited and in desert. places they pitched their tents, 3 They stood against their enemies and revenged themselves of their. adversaries, 4 They were thirsty and they called upon thee and water was given them. out of the high rock and a refreshment of their thirst out of the hard stone. 5 For by what things their enemies were punished when their drink failed. them while the children of Israel abounded therewith and rejoiced. 6 By the same things they in their need were benefited. 7 For instead of a fountain of an ever running river thou gavest human. blood to the unjust, 8 And whilst they were diminished for a manifest reproof of their murdering. the infants thou gavest to thine abundant water unlooked for. 9 Shewing by the thirst that was then how thou didst exalt thine and didst. kill their adversaries, 10 For when they were tried and chastised with mercy they knew how the. wicked were judged with wrath and tormented, 11 For thou didst admonish and try them as a father but the others as a.
severe king thou didst examine and condemn, 12 For whether absent or present they were tormented alike. 13 For a double affliction came upon them and a groaning for the. remembrance of things past, 14 For when they heard that by their punishments the others were benefited. they remembered the Lord wondering at the end of what was come to.
