Abstract:The personification of Wisdom is one of the most intriguing topics of Old Testament scholarship. Scholars have debated a great deal about the origin of personified Wisdom and her theological significance within wisdom literature. She is a figure described through many different allusions. Lady Wisdom is portrayed as more beautiful than the sun or any constellation (Wis 7:29), as Yhwh's partner in creation (Prov 8:22-30; Wis 8:4; 9:9), as Yhwh's delight (Prov 8:30), as a lover (Prov 8:17; Wis 6:12), and as wife (Wis 7:28; 8:2, 17). The many-sided characteristics of Lady Wisdom are nowhere better illustrated than in Sirach 24. This dissertation will provide a detailed study of the tradition-historical background of the imagery in Sirach 24. Chapter One discusses such preliminary matters as the text of Sirach 24, the date and place of composition, and the literature dealing with the origins of personified Wisdom. Chapter Two presents a rhetorical analysis of the text so as to bring out the imagery of the text. Chapter Three focuses on the motifs of the tree and the goddess in the Ancient Near East and the Hebrew Scriptures. Chapter Four centers on an exegetical analysis of Sirach 24 to determine the theological significance of the vegetative, ornamental, and perennial imagery associated with Lady Wisdom there. Through his depiction of Lady Wisdom as Law, Ben Sira reminds his contemporaries that they still are the chosen people of Yhwh, who remains present to them in the personification of Lady Wisdom residing in the Jerusalem Temple. Lady Wisdom/Law is presented as the means though which the Jewish people find their identity and the true source of their fulfillment as a people.
