The presence of wisdom (Wis 7:27-7:30)

“Although she is but one,

She can do all things.

While remaining in herself,

She renews all things.

In every generation

She passes into holy souls.

She makes them friends of God,

She makes them friends of prophets.

God loves nothing so much

As the person who lives with wisdom.

She is more beautiful

Than the sun.

She excels

Every constellation of the stars.

Compared with the light

She is found to be superior.

It is succeeded by the night.

But against wisdom

Evil does not prevail.”

Wisdom is one, but can do all things, while remaining in herself. She renews all things. In every generation, she makes holy souls become friends of God and prophets (φίλους Θεοῦ καὶ προφήτας). God loves (ἀγαπᾷ ὁ Θεὸς) the person who lives with wisdom (τὸν σοφίᾳ), since she is more beautiful than the sun. She excels every constellation of stars. She is superior to light. Evil will not prevail against wisdom. Once again, many of these same things have been said about the Christian Holy Spirit.
