I am the daughter of fortitude,
& ravished every hour, from my youth,
for behold, I am understanding,
& science dwelleth in me :
& the heavens oppress me,
They covet and desire me with infinite appetite
few or none that are earthly have embraced me
for I am shadowed with the circle of the sun :
and covered with the morning clouds:
My feet are swifter than the winds,
& my hands are sweeter than the morning dew.
My garments are from the beginning:
& my dwelling place is in my self.
The lion knoweth not where I walk :
neither do the beasts of the field understand me.
I am deflowered & yet a virgin.
I sanctify & am not sanctified
happy is he that embraceth me.
for in the night season I am sweet,
in the day full of pleasure
my company is a harmony of many cymbals
And my lips sweeter than health itself.
I am a harlot for such as ravish me :
and a virgin with such as know me not :
for lo I am loved of many :
& I am a lover to many:
and as many as come unto me as they should do,
have their entertainment.
Purge your streets o you sons of men,
& wash your houses clean
Make your selves holy, & put on righteousness
Cast out your old strumpets, & burn their clothes
Abstain from the company of other women that are defiled,
that are sluttish, & not so handsome, & beautiful as I.
And then will I come & dwell amongst you.
And behold I will bring forth Children unto you:
& they shall be the sons of comfort
I will open my garments, & stand naked before you
that your love may be more enflamed toward me.
As yet, I walk in the clouds,
As yet, I am carried with the winds :
And can not descend unto you for the multitude of your abominations,
& the filthy loathsomeness of your dwelling places.
Behold these fowre, who is he, that shall say, they have sinned :
or unto whom shall they make account?
Not unto you, you sons of men, nor unto your children :
for unto the lord belongeth the Judgment of his servants
Now therefore, let the earth give forth her fruits unto you :
And let the mountains forsake their barrenness
where your footsteps shall remain.
happy is he that saluteth you :
& cursed is he that holdeth up his hands against you.
& power shall be given unto you from hence forth to resist your enemies :
& the lord shall always here you in the times of your troubles.
And I am sent unto you to play the harlot with you :
And am to enrich you with the spoils of other men :
prepare for me, for I come shortly.
Provide your Chambers for me that they may be sweet & cleanly :
for I will make a dwelling place amongst you :
and I will be common with the father & the son,
yea and with all them that truly favoreth you
for my youth, is in her flower
and my strength is not to be extinguished with man.
Strong am I above & below.
Therefore, provide for me. for behold I now salute you.
And let peace be amongst you :
for I am the Daughter of Comfort.
Disclose not my secrets unto women :
nether let them understand how sweet I am.
For all things belongeth not unto every one.
I come unto you again!
