[Wisdom of Solomon 7:21-29]
 I learnt it all, hidden  or manifest, for I was taught by he whose skill made all things, wisdom. For in wisdom there is a spirit intelligent and holy, unique in its kind yet made up of many parts, subtle, free-moving, lucid, spotless, clear,  invulnerable, loving what is good, eager, unhindered, beneficent, kindly towards men, steadfast, unerring, touched by care, all-powerful, all-surveying,  and permeating all intelligent, pure, and delicate spirits. For wisdom moves more easily than motion itself, she pervades and permeates  all things because she is so pure. Like a fine mist she rises from the power of God, a pure effluence from the glory of the Almighty; so nothing defiled  can enter into her by stealth. She is the brightness that streams from everlasting light, the flawless mirror of the active power of God and the image  of his goodness. She is but one, yet can do everything; herself unchanging, she makes all things new; age after age she enters into holy souls, and makes  them God's friends and prophets, for nothing is acceptable to God but the  man who makes his home with wisdom. She is more radiant than the sun, and surpasses every constellation; compared with the light of day, she is found  excelling.
