Wisdom 2:12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

12 [a]Let us lie in wait for the righteous one, because he is annoying to us;
    he opposes our actions,
Reproaches us for transgressions of the law[b]
    and charges us with violations of our training.

Footnotes:

  1. 2:12–5:23 From 2:12 to 5:23 the author draws heavily on Is 52–62, setting forth his teaching in a series of characters or types taken from Isaiah and embellished with additional details from other texts. The description of the “righteous one” in 2:12–20 seems to undergird the New Testament passion narrative.
  2. 2:12 Law: the law of Moses; “training” has the same meaning.
