Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Does not wisdom call, does not understanding raise her voice? 1 Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?
2 On the heights beside the way, in the paths she takes her stand; 2 On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
3 beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud: 3 beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud:
4 "To you, O men, I call, and my cry is to the sons of men. 4 "To you, O men, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind.
5 O simple ones, learn prudence; O foolish men, pay attention. 5 You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, gain understanding.
6 Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right; 6 Listen, for I have worthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right.
