Wisdom 1: 1-7
1:1 Love justice, you who judge the land. Think of the Lord in goodness and seek him in simplicity of heart.
1:2 For he is found by those who do not test him, yet he reveals himself to those who have faith in him.
1:3 For perverse thoughts separate from God. But his virtue, when it is tested, corrects the foolish.
1:4 For wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subdued by sin.
1:5 For the holy spirit of instruction will flee from falsehood, and he will withdraw himself from thoughts that are without understanding, and he will not be reached when iniquity overcomes.
1:6 For the spirit of wisdom is benevolent, and will not release the evil speaker from his talk, because God is a witness of his temperament, and a true examiner of his heart, and an auditor of his words.
1:7 For the spirit of the Lord has filled the world, and he who contains all things, retains knowledge of every voice.
