Wisdom - Chapter 10
2 and gave him the strength to subjugate all things.
3 But when in his wrath a wicked man deserted her, he perished in his fratricidal fury.
5 Again, when, concurring in wickedness, the nations had been thrown into confusion, she singled out the upright man, preserved him blameless before God and fortified him against pity for his child.
6 She it was who, while the godless perished, saved the upright man as he fled from the fire raining down on the Five Cities,
9 But Wisdom delivered her servants from their ordeals.
10 The upright man, fleeing from the anger of his brother, was led by her along straight paths. She showed him the kingdom of God and taught him the knowledge of holy things. She brought him success in his labours and gave him full return for all his efforts;
13 She did not forsake the upright man when he was sold, but snatched him away from sin;
14 she accompanied him down into the pit, nor did she abandon him in his chains until she had brought him the sceptre of a kingdom and authority over his despotic masters, thus exposing as liars those who had traduced him, and giving him honour everlasting.
15 It was Wisdom who delivered a holy people, a blameless race, from a nation of oppressors.
21 for Wisdom opened the mouths of the dumb and made eloquent the tongues of babes.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
