Wisdom 8:7
If anyone loves to do what is right, laboring with Wisdom will produce every virtue. She trains persons to learn moderation and practical wisdom. She teaches them what is right and how to exercise courage. Nothing is more advantageous than these when it comes to human existence.
And if a man love justice: her labours have great virtues; for she teacheth temperance, and prudence, and justice, and fortitude, which are such things as men can have nothing more profitable in life.
Do you love justice? All the virtues are the result of Wisdom's work: justice and courage, self-control and understanding. Life can offer us nothing more valuable than these.
Or if one loves righteousness, whose works are virtues, She teaches moderation and prudence, righteousness and fortitude, and nothing in life is more useful than these.
And if anyone loves righteousness, her labors are virtues; for she teaches self-control and prudence, justice and courage; nothing in life is more profitable for mortals than these.

And if a man loveth rightfulness, the travails of this wisdom have great virtues; for it teacheth soberness, and prudence, and rightfulness, and virtue; and nothing is profitabler than these in life to men. [And if rightwiseness a man loveth, the travails of this have great virtues; soberness forsooth and prudence it teacheth, and rightwiseness, and virtue; than the which more profitable nothing is in life to men.]
