1All wisdom is from the Lord,
and with him it remains for ever.
2 The sand of the sea, the drops of rain,
and the days of eternitywho can count them?
3 The height of heaven, the breadth of the earth,
the abyss, and wisdom*who can search them out?
4 Wisdom was created before all other things,
and prudent understanding from eternity.*
6 The root of wisdomto whom has it been revealed?
Her subtletieswho knows them?*
8 There is but one who is wise, greatly to be feared,
seated upon his thronethe Lord.
9 It is he who created her;
he saw her and took her measure;
he poured her out upon all his works,
10 upon all the living according to his gift;
he lavished her upon those who love him.*
