Wisdom of Solomon Chapter 13
1 Surely vain are all men by nature, who are ignorant of God, and could not out of the good things that are seen know him that is: neither by considering the works did they acknowledge the workmaster;
10 But miserable are they, and in dead things is their hope, who call them gods, which are the works of men's hands, gold and silver, to shew art in, and resemblances of beasts, or a stone good for nothing, the work of an ancient hand.
11 Now a carpenter that felleth timber, after he hath sawn down a tree meet for the purpose, and taken off all the bark skilfully round about, and hath wrought it handsomely, and made a vessel thereof fit for the service of man's life;
13 And taking the very refuse among those which served to no use, being a crooked piece of wood, and full of knots, hath carved it diligently, when he had nothing else to do, and formed it by the skill of his understanding, and fashioned it to the image of a man;
18 For health he calleth upon that which is weak: for life prayeth to that which is dead; for aid humbly beseecheth that which hath least means to help: and for a good journey he asketh of that which cannot set a foot forward:

This is a fantastic book that plainly sums up discipline to wisdom with riches being the resulting factor. It further talks about spiritual, intellectual and material wealth in addition to divine protection. I really loved this book and learned a lot from it. It is clear the wicked will be punished in like manner to their sins and that was a great revelation together with canivalism, child sacrifices that we are seeing today. I was doing some research on strongs and came accross sea monsters and solomon describes quite amazing beasts so I wonder what is the correlation with Leviathan if there is any?
