Wisdom 19:3

For they having yet mourning betwixt the hands, and they beweeping at the sepulchres of dead men, took to them(selves) another thought of uncunning, (or of unknowing, or of ignorance); and they pursued those Hebrews, as fleers away, which they praying had sent forth. [Yet forsooth among the hands having wailing, and weeping at the monuments of the dead, another thinking of uncunning they took to them; and whom praying they had thrown away, them as fugitives they pursued.]
