Does not wisdom call out?1 Does not understanding raise her voice?
At the highest point along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
beside the gate leading into the city, at the entrance, she cries aloud:24
"To you, O people, I call out;3 I raise my voice to all humankind.
You who are simple,4 gain prudence;5 you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.a6
Listen, for I have trustworthy things to say; I open my lips to speak what is right.
My mouth speaks what is true,6 for my lips detest wickedness.
