20  eWisdom crieth without;

She uttereth her voice in the streets:

21  She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in eethe openings of the gates:

In the city she uttereth her words, saying,

22  How long, ye fsimple ones, will ye love simplicity?

And the gscorners delight in their scorning,

And fools hhate knowledge?

23  Turn you at my reproof:

Behold, iI will jpour out my spirit unto you,

I will make known my words unto you.

24  kBecause I have called, and ye lrefused;

I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25  But ye have mset at nought all my counsel,

And nwould none of my reproof:

26  I also will olaugh at your calamity;

I will omock when your fear cometh;

27  When your fear cometh as pdesolation,

And your destruction cometh as a whirlwind;

When distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28  qThen shall they call upon me, but I will not answer;

They shall rseek me early, but they shall not find me:

29  For that they hhated knowledge,

And did not schoose the fear of the Lord:

30  They uwould none of my counsel:

They tdespised all my reproof.

31  Therefore shall they eat of uthe fruit of their own way,

And be wfilled with their own devices.

32  For the ||xturning away of the simple shall slay them,

And the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

33  But ywhoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely,

And zshall be quiet from fear of evil.
