Lady wisdom as the created co-creator in Syriac proverbs 8: 22-31
Moss, Alan 2003. Lady wisdom as the created co-creator in Syriac proverbs 8: 22-31. Australian Ejournal of Theology.
The characteristics of Wisdom in the Syriac translation of the Bible may be explored by comparing the Syriac text with the two recognised sources, Hebrew and Greek. In the main, Syriac Wisdom is very similar to Hebrew Wisdom and many of the Greek innovations are not employed. She was made before the universe to work with God and to be close to humans. In Syriac her role in creation is more evidently in parallel God's own constructive activity. Canonical Wisdom in Syriac may be understood as a distinct biblical portrait, not as a collage of sources.
