Wisdom’s Announcement

Does not wisdom call out?

Does not understanding raise its voice?

Wisdom takes its stand on high ground,

by the wayside where the roads meet,

near the gates to the city.

At the entrance wisdom sings its song,

“I am calling to all of you,

and my appeal is to all people.

You gullible people, learn how to be sensible.

You fools, get a heart that has understanding.a

Listen! I am speaking about noble things,

and my lips will say what is right.

My mouth expresses the truth,

and wickedness is disgusting to my lips.
