Chapter 39, Hokhma Summary and Analysis

Hokhma is the Hebrew word for wisdom. The account of Hokhma (Wisdom) is from a text that was removed from the Bible. Wisdom is personified as female. The virtues of loving and knowing Wisdom are extolled in this text. Wisdom knows all. She does not make herself known to the spiteful. She teaches the knowledge of all there is to know in the world. She is a mirror of the active power of God, but she also decides what God will do. Wisdom sits by the throne of God, yet they also say that she is the Holy Spirit.
