Doesn't Wisdom call out? Doesn't Understanding make her voice heard?
At the heights overlooking the road, at the crossroads, she takes her stand.
Beside the gates at the entry toa the city, at the main entrance, she cries out:b4
"People, I call out to you; my cry is to mankind.
Learn to be shrewd, you who are inexperienced; develop common sense, you who are foolish.
Listen, for I speak of noble things, and what my lips say is right.
For my mouth tells the truth, and wickedness is detestable to my lips.
