  1. These things says the man to them that trust in God; and I cease.

  2. For I am the most simple of all men, and there is not in me the wisdom of men.
  3. God has taught me wisdom, and I know the knowledge of the holy.
  4. Who has gone up to heaven, and come down? who has gathered the winds in his [a] bosom? who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? who has dominion of all the ends of the earth? what is his name? or what is the name of his children?
  5. For all the words of God are tried in the fire, and he defends those that reverence him.
  6. Add not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be made a liar.

  7. Two things I ask of thee; take not favour from me before I die.
  8. Remove far from me vanity and falsehood: and give me not wealth or poverty; but appoint me what is needful and sufficient:
  9. lest I be filled and become false, and say, Who see me? or be poor and steal, and swear vainly by the name of God.

  10. Deliver not a servant into the hands of his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be utterly destroyed.
  11. A wicked generation curse their father, and do not bless their mother.
  12. A wicked generation judge themselves to be just, but do not cleanse their way.
  13. A wicked generation have lofty eyes, and exalt themselves with their eyelids.
  14. A wicked generation have swords for teeth and jaw-teeth as knives, so as to destroy and devour the lowly from the earth, and the poor of them from among men.

[a] Or, fold of his robe.
