Wisdom of Solomon 6:12-21
 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.
 In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.
 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.
 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.
 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.
 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.
 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.
 The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.
2 Corinthians 4:10-5:5
 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
 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?
