Wisdom 14:5
Your will is that the works of your wisdom be fruitful. This is the only reason in the end why humans can entrust their lives to cheap pieces of wood and can reach land safely by riding the breaking surf on a ship that is no more than a raft.
But that the works of thy wisdom might not be idle: therefore men also trust their lives even to a little wood, and passing over the sea by ship are saved.
It is your will that the things you have made by your wisdom should be put to use. And so people can cross the sea in a boat and come safely to land, because they trust their lives to that small piece of wood.
But you will that the products of your Wisdom be not idle; therefore people trust their lives even to most frail wood, and were safe crossing the waves on a raft.
It is your will that works of your wisdom should not be without effect; therefore people trust their lives even to the smallest piece of wood, and passing through the billows on a raft they come safely to land.

but that the works of thy wisdom should not be void, for this thing men betake their lives, yea, to a little tree, and they pass (over) the sea, and be delivered (or saved) by a ship. [but that the works of thy wisdom were not be void, for that also men taking their lives to a little tree, and passing (over) the sea, by a ship be delivered.]
