"she sheweth herself ..."

A lenght of scripture from the lost books of the bible. Thought I would share with my friends ♥



"Covet ye, therefore, my words, and love them, and you shall have instruction.
. Wisdom is glorious, and never fadeth away, and is easily seen by them that love her, and is found by them that seek her.
She preventeth them that covet her, so that she first sheweth herself unto them.
He that awaketh early to seek her, shall not labour: for he shall find her sitting at his door.
To think, therefore, upon her, is perfect understanding: and he that watcheth for her, shall quickly be secure.
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.
For the beginning of her is the most true desire of discipline.
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:
And incorruption bringeth near to God.
Therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth to the everlasting kingdom.
If then your delight be in thrones, and sceptres, O ye kings of the people, love wisdom, that you may reign for ever.
Love the light of wisdom, all ye that bear rule over peoples.
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:
Neither will I go with consuming envy: for such a man shall not be partaker of wisdom.
Now the multitude of the wise is the welfare of the whole world: and a wise king is the upholding of the people.
Receive, therefore, instruction by my words, and it shall be profitable to you."

~The Book of Wisdom 6:12-27- The Jerusalem Bible
