Wisdom of Solomon 1 
An exhortation to seek God sincerely, Who cannot be deceived, and desires not our death.

1:1 Love righteousness, ye that be judges of the earth: think of the Lord with a good (heart,) and in simplicity of heart seek Him.
1:2 For He will be found of them that tempt Him not; and shows Himself unto such as do not distrust Him. 1:3 For froward thoughts separate from God: and His power, when it is tried, reproves the unwise. 1:4 For into a malicious soul wisdom shall not enter; nor dwell in the body that is subject unto sin. 1:5 For the Holy Spirit of discipline will flee deceit, and remove from thoughts that are without understanding, and will not abide when unrighteousness cometh in. 1:6   For wisdom is a loving spirit; and will not acquit a blasphemer of his words: for God is witness of his reins, and a true beholder of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue. 1:7   For the Spirit of the Lord fills the world: and that which contains all things hath knowledge of the voice. 1:8 Therefore he that speaks unrighteous things cannot be hid: neither shall vengeance, when it punishes, pass by him. 1:9 For inquisition shall be made into the counsels of the ungodly: and the sound of his words shall come unto the Lord for the manifestation of his wicked deeds. 1:10 For the ear of jealousy hears all things: and the noise of murmurings is not hid. 1:11 Therefore beware of murmuring, which is unprofitable; and refrain  your tongue from backbiting: for there is no word so secret, that shall go for naught: and the mouth that belies slays the soul. 1:12 Seek not death in the error of your life: and pull not upon yourselves destruction with the works of your hands. 1:13 For God made not death: neither hath He pleasure in the destruction of the living. 1:14 For He created all things, that they might have their being: and the generations of the world were healthful; and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor the kingdom of death upon the earth: 1:15  (For righteousness is immortal:) 1:16 But ungodly men with their works and words called it to them: for when they thought to have it their friend, they consumed to  naught, and made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it.
