Ecclesiasticus (Douay Rheims, Latin Vulgate, ancient songs based off) = Book of Sirach

O Wisdom which camest out of the Most High, reaching from end to end and ordering all things mightily and sweetly: come and teach us the way of prudence.

Ecclesias. 24.5 I came out of the mouth of the most High, the firstborn before all creatures: Douay-Rheims 1899

Wis 8:1 She reacheth therefore from end to end mightily, and ordereth all things sweetly.[1]

Is 11:2-3

And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: the spirit of wisdom, and of understanding, the spirit of counsel, and of fortitude, the spirit of knowledge, and of godliness.

And he shall be filled with the spirit of the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge according to the sight of the eyes, nor reprove according to the hearing of the ears.

VII. December 18 (Exodus 3.2; 20.1) (Is 11:4-5; 33:32)

O Adonai, and Leader of the house of Israel, who didst appear to Moses in the flame of the burning bush, and didst give unto him the law on Sinai: come and with an outstretched arm redeem us.

Exodus 3: And the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he saw that the bush was on fire and was not burnt.

Exodus 20 And the Lord spoke all these words: [Decalogue]

I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage…….

Adonai Lord, Lord Master, sovereignty,  used in place of YHWH as a name of God

Is 11: But he shall judge the poor with justice, and shall reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: land he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.

And justice shall be the girdle of his loins: and faith the girdle of his reins.

Is 33: 22 For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king: he will save us.

VIII. December 19 (Isaias 11.10) (Is 11:1)

O Root of Jesse, which standest for an ensign of the people, before whom kings shall keep silence, whom the Gentiles shall beseech: come and deliver us, and tarry not.

Is 11: 10 In that day the root of Jesse, who standeth for an ensign of the people, him the Gentiles shall beseech, and his sepulchre shall be glorious.

Is 11 And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse, and a flower shall rise up out of his root.

  1. December 20 (Isaias 22.22; Apocalypse 3.7; Luke 1.79) (Is 22:22)

O Key of David, and Sceptre of the house of Israel, that shuttest and no man openeth: come and bring the prisoner forth from the prison-house, and him that sitteth in darkness and in the shadow of death.

Is 22 And I will lay the key of the house of David upon his shoulder: and he shall open, and none shall shut: and he shall shut, and none shall open.

(Apocalypse) Rev 3:7 And to the angel of the church of Philadelphia, write: These things saith the Holy One and the true one, he that hath the key of David; he that openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth, and no man openeth:

Luke 1: 79 To enlighten them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death: to direct our feet into the way of peace.

Is 22:22 And I will lay the key of the house of David upon his shoulder: and he shall open, and none shall shut: and he shall shut, and none shall open.

Paul signs and wonders, Greeks wisdom. All there in Christ. Signs, wisdom all in Him. Christ crucified is our glory. Wisdom Lord, Root of Jesse,

St. Joseph barren branch burst forth into flower.
