|Wisdom 7: 7 - 11
||Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me; I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me.
||I preferred her to scepters and thrones, and I accounted wealth as nothing in comparison with her.
||Neither did I liken to her any priceless gem, because all gold is but a little sand in her sight, and silver will be accounted as clay before her.
||I loved her more than health and beauty, and I chose to have her rather than light, because her radiance never ceases.
||All good things came to me along with her, and in her hands uncounted wealth.
