Wisdom of Solomon 17:12

“For feare is nothing else, but a betraying of the succours which reason offereth.”

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 17:12

9. For though no terrible thing did feare them: yet being skared with beasts that passed by, and hissing of serpents, 10. They died for feare, denying that they saw the ayre, which could of no side be auoided. 11. For wickednesse condemned by her owne witnesse, is very timorous, and being pressed with conscience, alwayes forecasteth grieuous things. 12. For feare is nothing else, but a betraying of the succours which reason offereth. 13. And the expectation from within being lesse, counteth the ignorance more then the cause which bringeth the torment. 14. But they sleeping the same sleepe that night which was indeed intolerable, and which came vpon them out of the bottomes of ineuitable hell: 15. Were partly vexed with monstrous apparitions, and partly fainted, their heart failing them: for a suddaine feare and not looked for, came vpon them.
