She crieth in the chief place of concourse , in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
Because I have called , and ye refused ; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded ;
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer ; they shall seek me early , but they shall not find me:
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
Doth not wisdom cry ? and understanding put forth her voice?
Unto you, O men, I call ; and my voice is to the sons of man.
She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,
To call passengers who go right on their ways:
But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.
The wise in heart shall be called prudent : and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.
Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find ?
Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard .
He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.
Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which bewrayeth itself.
