I prayed, and pru­dence was given me; I pleaded, and the spirit of wis­dom came to me. I pre­ferred her to scepter and throne, and deemed riches noth­ing in com­par­i­son with her, nor did I liken any price­less gem to her; be­cause all gold, in view of her, is a lit­tle sand, and be­fore her, sil­ver is to be ac­counted mire. Be­yond health and come­li­ness I loved her, and I chose to have her rather than the light, be­cause the splen­dor of her never yields to sleep. Yet all good things to­gether came to me in her com­pany, and count­less riches at her hands. (Wis­dom 7:7-11)
