Sirach 51:19
My whole being grappled with her, and I was brought to perfection in my performance of the Law. I spread out my hands toward heaven, and I kept in mind my ignorance of her.
I prayed for her before the temple, and unto the very end I will seek after her, and she flourished as a grape soon ripe.
I fought for Wisdom and was strict in my conduct. When I prayed, I sadly confessed how far short of Wisdom I fell.
I burned with desire for her, never relenting. I became preoccupied with her, never weary of extolling her. I spread out my hands to the heavens and I came to know her secrets.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
My soul wrestled together therein; and I was confirmed in doing it. I stretched forth mine hands on high; and my soul shined in the wisdom of him, and he lightened mine uncunnings (or he enlightened my unknowings, or my ignorances). [My soul wrestled in it; and in doing it I am confirmed. My hands I straight(en)ed out into high; and in the wisdom of him wailed my soul, and mine uncunnings (or my ignorances) he lighted.]
