Wisdom Led the Israelites out of Egypt


A holy people and blameless race

wisdom delivered from a nation of oppressors.


She entered the soul of a servant of the Lord,

and withstood dread kings with wonders and signs.


She gave to holy people the reward of their labors;

she guided them along a marvelous way,

and became a shelter to them by day,

and a starry flame through the night.


She brought them over the Red Sea,

and led them through deep waters;


but she drowned their enemies,

and cast them up from the depth of the sea.


Therefore the righteous plundered the ungodly;

they sang hymns, O Lord, to your holy name,

and praised with one accord your defending hand;


for wisdom opened the mouths of those who were mute,

and made the tongues of infants speak clearly.
