20Wisdom cries out in the street; in the squares she raises her voice.21At the busiest corner she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:22"How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge?23Give heed to my reproof; I will pour out my thoughts to you; I will make my words known to you.24Because I have called and you refused, have stretched out my hand and no one heeded,25and because you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof,26I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when panic strikes you,27when panic strikes you like a storm, and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.28Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but will not find me.29Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord,30would have none of my counsel, and despised all my reproof,31therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way and be sated with their own devices.32For waywardness kills the simple, and the complacency of fools destroys them;33but those who listen to me will be secure and will live at ease, without dread of disaster."
27Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?"28And they answered him, "John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets."29He asked them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered him, "You are the Messiah." 30And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him.31Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.32He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.33But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things."34He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.35For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.36For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life?37Indeed, what can they give in return for their life?38Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."
