(Cp Prov 8:1–36)
12 Wisdom is radiant and unfading,
and she is easily discerned by those who love her,
and is found by those who seek her.
for she will be found sitting at the gate.
and one who is vigilant on her account will soon be free from care,
and she graciously appears to them in their paths,
and meets them in every thought.
17 The beginning of wisdoma is the most sincere desire for instruction,
and concern for instruction is love of her,
and giving heed to her laws is assurance of immortality,
honor wisdom, so that you may reign forever.
