81She reacheth, therefore, from end to end mightily, and ordereth all things sweetly.adtingit enim a fine usque ad finem fortiter et disponit omnia suaviter
82Her have I loved, and have sought her out from my youth, and have desired to take for my spouse, and I became a lover of her beauty.hanc amavi et exquisivi a iuventute mea et quaesivi sponsam mihi adsumere et amator factus sum formae illius
83She glorifieth her nobility by being conversant with God: yea, and the Lord of all things hath loved her.generositatem glorificat contubernium habens Dei sed et omnium Dominus dilexit illam
84For it is she that teacheth the knowledge of God and is the chooser of his works.doctrix est enim disciplinae Dei et electrix operum illius
85And if riches be desired in life, what is richer than wisdom, which maketh all things?et si divitiae appetuntur in vita quid sapientiae locupletius quae omnia operatur
86And if sense do work: who is a more artful worker than she of those things that are?si autem sensus operatur quis horum quae sunt magis quam illa est artifex
87And if a man love justice: her labours have great virtues: for she teacheth temperance, and prudence, and justice, and fortitude, which are such things as men can have nothing more profitable in life.et si iustitiam quis diligit labores huius magnas habent virtutes sobrietatem enim et sapientiam docet et iustitiam et virtutem quibus utilius nihil est in vita hominibus
88And if a man desire much knowledge: she knoweth things past, and judgeth of things to come: she knoweth the subtilties of speeches, and the solutions of arguments: she knoweth signs and wonders before they be done, and the events of times and ages.et si multitudinem scientiae desiderat quis scit praeterita et de futuris aestimat scit versutias sermonum et dissolutiones argumentorum signa et monstra scit antequam fiant et eventus temporum et saeculorum
89I purposed, therefore, to take her to me to live with me: knowing that she will communicate to me of her good things, and will be a comfort in my cares and grief.proposui ergo hanc adducere mihi ad convivendum sciens quoniam communicabit mecum de bonis et erit adlocutio cogitationis et taedii mei
810For her sake I shall have glory among the multitude, and honour with the ancients, though I be young:habebo propter hanc claritatem ad turbas et honorem apud seniores iuvenis
811And I shall be found of a quick conceit in judgment, and shall be admired in the sight of the mighty, and the faces of princes shall wonder at me.acutus inveniar in iudicio et in conspectu potentium admirabilis ero et facies principum mirabuntur me
812They shall wait for me when I hold my peace, and they shall look upon me when I speak; and if I talk much, they shall lay their hands on their mouth.tacentem me sustinebunt et loquentem me respicient et sermocinante plura manus ori suo inponent
813Moreover, by the means of her I shall have immortality: and shall leave behind me an everlasting memory to them that come after me.propterea habebo per hanc inmortalitatem et memoriam aeternam his qui post me futuri sunt relinquam
814I shall set the people in order: and nations shall be subject to me.disponam populos et nationes mihi erunt subiectae
815Terrible kings hearing, shall be afraid of me: among the multitude I shall be found good, and valiant in war.timebunt me audientes reges horrendi in multitudine videbor bonus et in bello fortis
816When I go into my house, I shall repose myself with her: for her conversation hath no bitterness, nor her company any tediousness, but joy and gladness.intrans in domum meam conquiescam cum illa non enim habet amaritudinem conversatio illius nec taedium convictus ipsius sed laetitiam et gaudium
817Thinking these things with myself, and pondering them in my heart, that to be allied to wisdom is immortality,haec cogitans apud me et commemorans in corde meo quoniam inmortalitas est in cogitatione sapientiae
818And that there is great delight in her friendship, and inexhaustible riches in the works of her hands, and in the exercise of conference with her, wisdom, and glory in the communication of her words: I went about seeking, that I might take her to myself.et in amicitia illius delectatio bona et in operibus manuum illius honestas sine defectione et in certamine loquellae illius sapientia et praeclaritas in communicatione sermonum ipsius circuibam quaerens ut mihi illam adsumerem
819And I was a witty child, and had received a good soul.puer autem eram ingeniosus et sortitus sum animam bonam
820And whereas I was more good, I came to a body undefiled.et cum essem magis bonus veni ad corpus incoinquinatum
821And as I knew that I could not otherwise be continent, except God gave it, and this also was a point of wisdom, to know whose gift it was, I went to the Lord, and besought him, and said with my whole heart:et ut scivi quoniam aliter non possum esse continens nisi Deus det et hoc ipsum erat sapientiae scire cuius esset hoc donum adii Dominum et deprecatus sum illum et dixi ex totis praecordiis meis
