Immortal spirit (Wis 12:1-12:2)

“Your immortal spirit is in all things.

Therefore you correct little by little

Those who trespass.

You remind them.

You warn them

Of the things through which they sin.

Thus they may be freed from wickedness.

They put their trust in you!

O Lord!”

God’s immortal spirit is in all things (σου πνεῦμά ἐστιν ἐν πᾶσι). This is almost pantheistic. God corrects little by little those who trespass against him. He reminds them and warns them about sin. Thus they may stay away from wickedness, if they put their trust in the Lord (Κύριε). Once again, this a prayer addressed to the Lord, God.
