Praise for wisdom (Sir 24:1-24:2)

“Wisdom will praise herself.

She tells of her glory

In the midst of her people.

In the assembly of the Most High

She opens her mouth.

In the presence of the hosts

She tells of her glory.”

Sirach tells of the praise for wisdom. This is a female personification of wisdom. She will praise herself. She will tell of her glory among her own people at the assembly of the Most High God. She will open her mouth in the presence of all God’s legions. She will tell us all about her glory.
