Doesn’t wisdom call out? Doesn’t understanding make her voice heard?
They take their stand. They cry out at the entry of the city, at the main entrance they call out:
“My cry is to all mankind, people. You who are inexperienced. Learn to be shrewd, you who are foolish develop common sense. Listen, for I will speak of noble things and what my lips say is right, for my mouth speaks the truth and wickedness is detestable to my lips.
All the words of my mouth are righteous, there is nothing deceptive or perverse.
They are all clear to the perceptive, right to those that discover knowledge.
Receive my instruction rather than silver and knowledge rather than pure gold for wisdom is better than jewels and nothing can compare to it.”
