Wisdom 9:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 9

Solomon’s Prayer[a]

[b]God of my ancestors, Lord of mercy,
    you who have made all things by your word
And in your wisdom have established humankind
    to rule the creatures produced by you,


  1. 9:1–18 The author presents his version of Solomon’s prayer (1 Kgs 3:6–9; 2 Chr 1:8–10).
  2. 9:1–2 The author identifies Wisdom with the word of God just as he again identifies Wisdom with the spirit of God in v. 17. All three are alternate ways of expressing God’s activity in relationship with the world and its inhabitants.
