Wherefore set your affection upon my words; desire them, and ye shall be instructed.
 Wisdom is glorious, and never fadeth away: yea, she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her.
 She preventeth them that desire her, in making herself first known unto them.
 Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors.
 To think therefore upon her is perfection of wisdom: and whoso watcheth for her shall quickly be without care.
 For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her, sheweth herself favourably unto them in the ways, and meeteth them in every thought.
 For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love;
 And love is the keeping of her laws; and the giving heed unto her laws is the assurance of incorruption;
 And incorruption maketh us near unto God:
 Therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth to a kingdom.
 If your delight be then in thrones and sceptres, O ye kings of the people, honour wisdom, that ye may reign for evermore.
2 Corinthians 6:1-10
 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;
 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;
 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
