Wisdom is brilliant, she never fades.
By those who love her, she is readily seen,
By those who seek her, she is readily found.
She anticipates those who desire her by making herself
Whoever gets up early to seek her will have no trouble
But will find her sitting at the door.
Meditating on her is understanding in its perfect form,
And anyone keeping awake for her will soon be free from
For she herself searches everywhere for those who are
worthy of her,
Benevolently appearing to them on their ways,
Anticipating their every thought.
For wisdom begins with sincere desire for instruction,
care for instruction means loving her, loving her means keeping her
Attention to her laws guarantees incorruptibility,
And incorruptibility brings us near to God;
The desire for Wisdom thus leads to sovereignty.
