ESV 20 Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice; NIV 20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; ESV 21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks: NIV 21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech: ESV 22 "How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? NIV 22 "How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? ESV 23 If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you. NIV 23 If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you. ESV 24 Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded, NIV 24 But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand, ESV 25 because you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof, NIV 25 since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke, ESV 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when terror strikes you, NIV 26 I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you-- ESV 27 when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. NIV 27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. ESV 28 Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but will not find me. NIV 28 "Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me. ESV 29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD, NIV 29 Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD, ESV 30 would have none of my counsel and despised all my reproof, NIV 30 since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, ESV 31 therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way, and have their fill of their own devices. NIV 31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. ESV 32 For the simple are killed by their turning away, and the complacency of fools destroys them; NIV 32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; ESV 33 but whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster." NIV 33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm."
