Nature of Sophia
[7*22] For in her there is a spirit that is intelligent, holy, unique,
manifold, subtle, active, lucid, pure, simple, invulnerable, loving the
good, eager, irresistible,
 beneficent, kindly, steadfast, certain, tranquil, all-powerful,
overseeing all, and pervading all wise, pure and sublime spirits.
 For wisdom is more dynamic than any motion; because of her pureness
she pervades and penetrates all things.
 For she is a ray of the power of Theos, and a pure emanation of the
glory of the Almighty; therefore nothing defiled gains entrance into her.
 For she is the radiance of eternal light, the spotless mirror of the
working of Theos, and the image of his goodness.
 Though she is but one, she can do all things, and while remaining in
herself, she renews all things; in every generation she passes into holy
souls and generates friends of Theos, and prophets.
 For Theos loves nothing so much as the man who lives with wisdom.
 For she is fairer than the sun, and outshines every constellation of
the stars. Compared with the light she is found to excel.
 For after this comes the night, but against wisdom evil does not
[8*1] She reaches from end to end mightily and orders all things well.
~Wisdom of Solomon~
