Wisdom 7:26-30

Good News Bible (Catholic edition in Septuagint order)

26She is a reflection of eternal light, a perfect mirror of God's activity and goodness. 27Even though Wisdom acts alone, she can do anything. She makes everything new, although she herself never changes. From generation to generation she enters the souls of holy people, and makes them God's friends and prophets. 28There is nothing that God loves more than people who are at home with Wisdom. 29Wisdom is more beautiful than the sun and all the constellations. She is better than light itself, 30because night always follows day, but evil never overcomes Wisdom.
