Wisdom - Chapter 6
2 hear this, you who govern great populations, taking pride in your hosts of subject nations!
4 If therefore, as servants of his kingdom, you have not ruled justly nor observed the law, nor followed the will of God,
5 he will fall on you swiftly and terribly. On the highly placed a ruthless judgement falls;
6 the lowly are pardoned, out of pity, but the mighty will be mightily tormented.
7 For the Lord of all does not cower before anyone, he does not stand in awe of greatness, since he himself has made small and great and provides for all alike;
9 So, monarchs, my words are meant for you, so that you may learn wisdom and not fall into error;
11 Set your heart, therefore, on what I have to say, listen with a will, and you will be instructed.
15 Meditating on her is understanding in its perfect form, and anyone keeping awake for her will soon be free from care.
17 For Wisdom begins with the sincere desire for instruction, care for instruction means loving her,
20 the desire for Wisdom thus leads to sovereignty.
21 If then thrones and sceptres delight you, monarchs of the nations, honour Wisdom, so that you may reign for ever.
22 What Wisdom is and how she was born, I shall now explain; I shall hide no mysteries from you, but shall follow her steps from the outset of her origin, setting out what we know of her in full light, without departing from the truth.
25 Learn, therefore, from my words; the gain will be yours.
