Wisdom lives with me (Wis 8:9-8:9)

“Therefore I determined to take her

To live with me.

I knew

That she would give me good counsel.

She would give me encouragement in cares.

She would give me encouragement in grief.”

The wisdom author wanted wisdom to live (συμβίωσιν) with him.   She would then provide good counsel and encouragement whenever there were serious cares or in times of grief.
