God crowns a Sister in Faith with . . . A Righteous Reputation
I wisdom dwell with prudence and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the froward mouth do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
Now, therefore, hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain the favor of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
