***

Her name is “Wisdom”

But she was not wise in life

Guilty of envy

***

NOTE: Sapia, a woman whose name means “Wisdom” is here because she was envious in life. She repented late in late and has been able to climb the mountain earlier than she would have because Peter the Combseller, who will not sell a defective comb, prayed for her.
