Wisdom 14:2
Desire for profit led to the ship’s planning, and wisdom was the artisan who built it,
For this the desire of gain devised, and the workman built it by his skill.
Someone designed the ship out of a desire for profit, and a craftsman built it with skill.
For the urge for profits devised this latter, and Wisdom the artisan produced it.
For it was desire for gain that planned that vessel, and wisdom was the artisan who built it;
For it was desire for gain that planned that vessel, and wisdom was the artisan who built it;
For it was desire for gain that planned that vessel, and wisdom was the artisan who built it;
For it was desire for gain that planned that vessel, and wisdom was the artisan who built it;
For it was desire for gain that planned that vessel, and wisdom was the craftsman who built it;
For it was desire for gain that planned that vessel, and wisdom was the craftsman who built it;
For why covetousness to get money found (or was the reason to create) that idol; and a craftsman made it by his wisdom. [That forsooth covetousness of winning or purchasing thought out; and a craftsman forged (it) by his wisdom.]
