From the Book of Enoch, The First Parable, (pages 56-62:

42.1 Wisdom found no place where she could dwell, and her dwelling was
in Heaven.
42.2 Wisdom went out, in order to dwell among the sons of men, but did
not find a dwelling; wisdom returned to her place, and took her seat in the
midst of the Angels.
42.3 And iniquity came out from her chambers; those whom she did not
seek she found, and dwelt among them, like rain in the desert, and like dew
on the parched ground.
