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.
