A reading from the book of Wisdom.
Wisdom is radiant and unfading,
easily discerned by those who love her,
and found by those who seek her.
Quick to anticipate those who desire her,
Wisdom makes herself known to them.
Watch for her at dawn and you will not be disappointed,
you will find her waiting at your gates.
The very thought of Wisdom is understanding fully grown;
keep vigil for her sake
and you will soon be free of all care,
for Wisdom walks about seeking those who are worthy of her,
and graciously appears in their paths
and meets them in every thought.
The Word of God recorded in the book of Wisdom.
