Adam: She guarded the first formed father of the world, and delivered him out of his transgression. She gave him strength to get dominion over all things. But when an unrighteous man (Cain) fell away from her in his anger, he perished himself in the rage wherewith he killed his brother. Noah: Wisdom saved the earth, which was flooding because of him, guiding the righteous man's course by a poor piece of wood.
