Verbum – Structure and Content of the Book of Wisdom:

“The history of salvation, the history of the mercy of God towards his people, cannot but fill us with gratitude and trust in him. This simple message, which runs right through the book of Wisdom, reminds us of what Jesus told his disciples when he was about to leave them: ‘I am with you always, to the close of the age’ (Mt 28:20b).”
Michael Adams, trans., Wisdom Books, The Navarre Bible (Dublin; New York: Four Courts Press; Scepter Publishing, 2004), 379.
