Apocrypha: The Wisdom of Solomon VII: 24- VIII:1

24 For wisdom is more mobile than any motion; yeah, she pervadeth and penetrateth all things by reason of her pureness.
25 For she is a ¹breath of the power of God and a clear effluence of the glory of the Almighty;
therefore can nothing defiled find entrance into her.
26 For she is an effulgence from everlasting light, and an unspotted mirror of the working of God, and an image of his goodness.
27 And she, being one, hath power to do all things; and remaining in herself reneweth all things:
and from generation to generation passing into holy souls she maketh men friends of God and prophets.
28 For nothing doth God love save him that dwelleth with wisdom.
29 For she is fairer than the sun, and above ²all constellation of the stars: being compared with light, she is found to be before it;
30 for ³to the light of day succeedeth night, but against wisdom evil doth not prevail;
1 But she ⁴reacheth from one end of the world to the other with full strength, and ordereth all things graciously.

¹ Gr. vapour. ² Gr. every arrangement of stars. ³ Gr. to this. ⁴Or, reacheth from end onward unto end mightily.
