And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him." 3.1. Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman: ‘Yea, hath God said: Ye shall not eat of any tree of the garden?’" 3.2. And the woman said unto the serpent: ‘of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;" 3.3. but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said: Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.’" 3.4. And the serpent said unto the woman: ‘Ye shall not surely die;" 3.5. for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as God, knowing good and evil.’" 3.6. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat; and she gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat." 3.7. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made themselves girdles." 3.8. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden toward the cool of the day; and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden." 3.9. And the LORD God called unto the man, and said unto him: ‘Where art thou?’" 3.10. And he said: ‘I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.’" 3.13. And the LORD God said unto the woman: ‘What is this thou hast done?’ And the woman said: ‘The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.’" 3.14. And the LORD God said unto the serpent: ‘Because thou hast done this, cursed art thou from among all cattle, and from among all beasts of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life." 3.15. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; they shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise their heel.’" 3.17. And unto Adam He said: ‘Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying: Thou shalt not eat of it; cursed is the ground for thy sake; in toil shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life." 3.18. Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field." 3.19. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.’" 3.20. And the man called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living." 3.21. And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them." 3.22. And the LORD God said: ‘Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.’" 3.23. Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken." 3.24. So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way to the tree of life." 4.1. And the man knew Eve his wife; and she conceived and bore Cain, and said: ‘I have agotten a man with the help of the LORD.’" 22.1. And it came to pass after these things, that God did prove Abraham, and said unto him: ‘Abraham’; and he said: ‘Here am I.’"

For the thing which I did fear is come upon me, And that which I was afraid of hath overtaken me." 28.18. No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal; Yea, the price of wisdom is above rubies." 38.1. Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:" 38.2. Who is this that darkeneth counsel By words without knowledge?" 38.3. Gird up now thy loins like a man; For I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto Me." 42.5. I had heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear; But now mine eye seeth Thee;" 42.6. Wherefore I abhor my words, and repent, Seeing I am dust and ashes." 42.10. And the LORD changed the fortune of Job, when he prayed for his friends; and the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before."

To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion;" 1.5. That the wise man may hear, and increase in learning, And the man of understanding may attain unto wise counsels;" 1.7. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; But the foolish despise wisdom and discipline." 2.16. To deliver thee from the strange woman, Even from the alien woman that maketh smooth her words;" 2.17. That forsaketh the lord of her youth, And forgetteth the covet of her God." 2.18. For her house sinketh down unto death, And her paths unto the shades;" 2.19. None that go unto her return, Neither do they attain unto the paths of life;" 3.13. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, And the man that obtaineth understanding." 3.14. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, And the gain thereof than fine gold." 3.15. She is more precious than rubies; And all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her." 3.16. Length of days is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honour." 3.17. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace." 3.19. The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; By understanding He established the heavens." 4.5. Get wisdom, get understanding; Forget not, neither decline from the words of my mouth;" 4.6. Forsake her not, and she will preserve thee; Love her, and she will keep thee." 4.8. Extol her, and she will exalt thee; She will bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her." 4.9. She will give to thy head a chaplet of grace; A crown of glory will she bestow on thee.’" 4.10. Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; And the years of thy life shall be many." 4.11. I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in paths of uprightness." 4.12. When thou goest, thy step shall not be straitened; And if thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble." 4.13. Take fast hold of instruction, let her not go; Keep her, for she is thy life." 5.1. My son, attend unto my wisdom; Incline thine ear to my understanding;" 5.2. That thou mayest preserve discretion, And that thy lips may keep knowledge." 5.3. For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;" 5.4. But her end is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword." 5.5. Her feet go down to death; Her steps take hold on the nether-world;" 5.6. Lest she should walk the even path of life, Her ways wander, but she knoweth it not." 5.7. Now therefore, O ye children, hearken unto me, And depart not from the words of my mouth." 5.8. Remove thy way far from her, And come not nigh the door of her house;" 5.9. Lest thou give thy vigour unto others, And thy years unto the cruel;" 5.10. Lest strangers be filled with thy strength, And thy labours be in the house of an alien;" 5.11. And thou moan, when thine end cometh, When thy flesh and thy body are consumed," 5.12. And say: ‘How have I hated instruction, And my heart despised reproof;" 5.13. Neither have I hearkened to the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!" 5.14. I was well nigh in all evil In the midst of the congregation and assembly.’" 5.15. Drink waters out of thine own cistern, And running waters out of thine own well." 5.16. Let thy springs be dispersed abroad, And courses of water in the streets." 5.17. Let them be only thine own, And not strangers’with thee." 5.18. Let thy fountain be blessed; And have joy of the wife of thy youth." 5.19. A lovely hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; With her love be thou ravished always." 5.20. Why then wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, And embrace the bosom of an alien?" 5.21. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He maketh even all his paths." 5.22. His own iniquities shall ensnare the wicked, And he shall be holden with the cords of his sin." 5.23. He shall die for lack of instruction; And in the greatness of his folly he shall reel." 6.24. To keep thee from the evil woman, From the smoothness of the alien tongue." 6.25. Lust not after her beauty in thy heart; Neither let her captivate thee with her eyelids." 6.26. For on account of a harlot a man is brought to a loaf of bread, But the adulteress hunteth for the precious life." 6.27. Can a man take fire in his bosom, And his clothes not be burned?" 6.28. Or can one walk upon hot coals, And his feet not be scorched?" 6.29. So he that goeth in to his neighbour’s wife; Whosoever toucheth her shall not go unpunished." 6.30. Men do not despise a thief, if he steal To satisfy his soul when he is hungry;" 6.31. But if he be found, he must restore sevenfold, He must give all the substance of his house." 6.32. He that committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding; He doeth it that would destroy his own soul." 6.33. Wounds and dishonour shall he get, And his reproach shall not be wiped away. ." 6.34. For jealousy is the rage of a man, And he will not spare in the day of vengeance." 6.35. He will not regard any ransom; Neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts." 7.15. Therefore came I forth to meet thee, To seek thy face, and I have found thee." 8.5. O ye thoughtless, understand prudence, And, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart." 8.11. For wisdom is better than rubies, And all things desirable are not to be compared unto her." 8.12. I wisdom dwell with prudence, And find out knowledge of devices." 8.13. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, And the froward mouth, do I hate." 8.17. I love them that love me, And those that seek me earnestly shall find me." 8.22. The LORD made me as the beginning of His way, The first of His works of old." 8.23. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, Or ever the earth was." 8.24. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; When there were no fountains abounding with water." 8.25. Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills was I brought forth;" 8.26. While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields, Nor the beginning of the dust of the world." 8.27. When He established the heavens, I was there; When He set a circle upon the face of the deep," 8.28. When He made firm the skies above, When the fountains of the deep showed their might," 8.29. When He gave to the sea His decree, That the waters should not transgress His commandment, When He appointed the foundations of the earth;" 8.30. Then I was by Him, as a nursling; And I was daily all delight, Playing always before Him," 8.31. Playing in His habitable earth, And my delights are with the sons of men." 8.35. For whoso findeth me findeth life, And obtaineth favour of the LORD." 9.1. Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars;" 9.2. She hath prepared her meat, she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table." 9.3. She hath sent forth her maidens, she calleth, upon the highest places of the city:" 9.4. ’Whoso is thoughtless, let him turn in hither’; as for him that lacketh understanding, she saith to him:" 9.5. 'Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled." 9.6. Forsake all thoughtlessness, and live; and walk in the way of understanding." 9.10. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the All-holy is understanding." 9.13. The woman Folly is riotous; She is thoughtless, and knoweth nothing." 9.14. And she sitteth at the door of her house, On a seat in the high places of the city," 9.15. To call to them that pass by, Who go right on their ways:" 9.16. ’Whoso is thoughtless, let him turn in hither’; And as for him that lacketh understanding, she saith to him:" 9.17. ’Stolen waters are sweet, And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.’" 9.18. But he knoweth not that the shades are there; that her guests are in the depths of the nether-world." 12.4. A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband; But she that doeth shamefully is as rottenness in his bones." 15.23. A man hath joy in the answer of his mouth; And a word in due season, how good is it!" 15.32. He that refuseth correction despiseth his own soul; But he that hearkeneth to reproof getteth understanding." 16.6. By mercy and truth iniquity is expiated; And by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil." 16.16. How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! Yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver." 17.16. Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool To buy wisdom, seeing he hath no understanding?" 18.15. The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; And the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge." 19.8. He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul; He that keepeth understanding shall find good." 19.14. House and riches are the inheritance of fathers; But a prudent wife is from the LORD." 23.23. Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding." 31.1. The words of king Lemuel; the burden wherewith his mother corrected him."
8. Hebrew Bible, Psalms, 139.13 (9th cent. BCE - 3rd cent. BCE)

15. Anon., Testament of Levi, 13.1, 13.7, 13.9 (2nd cent. BCE - 2nd cent. CE)

13.1. And now, my children, I command you: Fear the Lord your God with your whole heart, And walk in simplicity according to all His law. 13.7. Get wisdom in the fear of God with diligence; For though there be a leading into captivity, And cities and lands be destroyed, And gold and silver and every possession perish, The wisdom of the wise nought can take away, Save the blindness of ungodliness, and the callousness (that comes) of sin. 13.9. Whosoever teaches noble things and does them, Shall be enthroned with kings, As was also Joseph my brother.

1.1. All wisdom comes from the Lord and is with him for ever. 1.1. The fear of the Lord delights the heart,and gives gladness and joy and long life. 4.17. For at first she will walk with him on tortuous paths,she will bring fear and cowardice upon him,and will torment him by her discipline until she trusts him,and she will test him with her ordices. 9.14. As much as you can, aim to know your neighbors,and consult with the wise. 9.15. Let your conversation be with men of understanding,and let all your discussion be about the law of the Most High. 51.3. and didst deliver me,in the greatness of thy mercy and of thy name,from the gnashings of teeth about to devour me,from the hand of those who sought my life,from the many afflictions that I endured 51.3. Do your work before the appointed time,and in Gods time he will give you your reward. 51.13. While I was still young, before I went on my travels,I sought wisdom openly in my prayer. 51.14. Before the temple I asked for her,and I will search for her to the last. 51.15. From blossom to ripening grape my heart delighted in her;my foot entered upon the straight path;from my youth I followed her steps. 51.16. I inclined my ear a little and received her,and I found for myself much instruction. 51.17. I made progress therein;to him who gives wisdom I will give glory. 51.18. For I resolved to live according to wisdom,and I was zealous for the good;and I shall never be put to shame. 51.19. My soul grappled with wisdom,and in my conduct I was strict;I spread out my hands to the heavens,and lamented my ignorance of her. 51.21. My heart was stirred to seek her,therefore I have gained a good possession. 51.22. The Lord gave me a tongue as my reward,and I will praise him with it. 51.23. Draw near to me, you who are untaught,and lodge in my school. 51.24. Why do you say you are lacking in these things,and why are your souls very thirsty? 51.25. I opened my mouth and said,Get these things for yourselves without money. 51.26. Put your neck under the yoke,and let your souls receive instruction;it is to be found close by. 51.27. See with your eyes that I have labored little and found myself much rest. 51.28. Get instruction with a large sum of silver,and you will gain by it much gold. 51.29. May your soul rejoice in his mercy,and may you not be put to shame when you praise him.

6.12. Wisdom is radiant and unfading,and she is easily discerned by those who love her,and is found by those who seek her. 6.14. He who rises early to seek her will have no difficulty,for he will find her sitting at his gates. 6.23. neither will I travel in the company of sickly envy,for envy does not associate with wisdom. 7.1. I also am mortal, like all men,a descendant of the first-formed child of earth;and in the womb of a mother I was molded into flesh 7.7. Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me;I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. 7.28. for God loves nothing so much as the man who lives with wisdom. 8.2. I loved her and sought her from my youth,and I desired to take her for my bride,and I became enamored of her beauty. 8.3. She glorifies her noble birth by living with God,and the Lord of all loves her. 8.4. For she is an initiate in the knowledge of God,and an associate in his works. 8.9. Therefore I determined to take her to live with me,knowing that she would give me good counsel and encouragement in cares and grief. 8.16. When I enter my house, I shall find rest with her,for companionship with her has no bitterness,and life with her has no pain, but gladness and joy. 8.18. and in friendship with her, pure delight,and in the labors of her hands, unfailing wealth,and in the experience of her company, understanding,and renown in sharing her words,I went about seeking how to get her for myself. 8.21. But I perceived that I would not possess wisdom unless God gave her to me -- and it was a mark of insight to know whose gift she was -- so I appealed to the Lord and besought him,and with my whole heart I said: 9.1. O God of my fathers and Lord of mercy,who hast made all things by thy word 9.4. give me the wisdom that sits by thy throne,and do not reject me from among thy servants. 9.9. With thee is wisdom, who knows thy works and was present when thou didst make the world,and who understand what is pleasing in thy sight and what is right according to thy commandments.
24. Mishnah, Avot, 1.6 (1st cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

2.23. and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness;" and he was called the friend of God.
26. New Testament, Ephesians, 5.21-5.33 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

5.21. subjecting yourselves one to another in the fear of Christ. 5.22. Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 5.23. For the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ also is the head of the assembly, being himself the savior of the body. 5.24. But as the assembly is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their own husbands in everything. 5.25. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; 5.26. that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word 5.27. that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 5.28. Even so ought husbands also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 5.29. For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord also does the assembly; 5.30. because we are members of his body, of his flesh and bones. 5.31. For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will be joined to his wife. The two will become one flesh. 5.32. This mystery is great, but I speak concerning Christ and of the assembly. 5.33. Nevertheless each of you must also love his own wife even as himself; and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
27. New Testament, John, 1.1-1.3 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

1.1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1.2. The same was in the beginning with God. 1.3. All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made.
