Sirarch 1: 1-4, 9-11
1:1 All wisdom is from the Lord God, and has always been with him, and is before all time.
1:2 Who has numbered the sand of the sea, and the drops of the rain, and the days of the world? Who has measured the height of heaven, and the breadth of the earth, and the depth of the abyss?
1:3 Who has examined the wisdom of God, which precedes all things?
1:4 Wisdom was created before all things, and the understanding of prudence is before all time.
1:9 He created wisdom through the Holy Spirit, and he saw her, and numbered her, and measured her.
1:10 And he poured her over all his works, and over all flesh, to the extent of his favor, and he has offered her to those who love him.
1:11 The fear of the Lord is glory, and honor, and rejoicing, and a crown of exultation.
