1 A Psalm of David himself. The Fourth Sabbath. The Lord is the God of retribution. The God of retribution acts in order to deliver.
2 Lift yourself up, for you judge the earth. Repay the arrogant with retribution.
3 How long will sinners, O Lord, how long will sinners glory?
4 How long will they utter and speak iniquity? How long will all who work injustice speak out?
5 They have humiliated your people, O Lord, and they have harassed your inheritance.
1 All wisdom is from the Lord God, and has always been with him, and is before all time.
2 Who has numbered the sand of the sea, and the drops of the rain, and the days of the world? Who has measured the height of heaven, and the breadth of the earth, and the depth of the abyss?
3 Who has examined the wisdom of God, which precedes all things?
4 Wisdom was created before all things, and the understanding of prudence is before all time.
5 The Word of God on high is the source of wisdom, whose steps are eternal commandments.
6 To whom has the root of wisdom been revealed, and who has recognized her astuteness?
7 To whom has the discipline of wisdom been revealed and made manifest? And who has understood the multiplicity of her steps?
8 The most high omnipotent Creator is One, and he is the mighty King, and he is exceedingly to be feared, sitting upon his throne, and he is the sovereign God.
9 He created wisdom through the Holy Spirit, and he saw her, and numbered her, and measured her.
10 And he poured her over all his works, and over all flesh, to the extent of his favor, and he has offered her to those who love him.
