Proverbs 1:20-33

CEB 20 Wisdom shouts in the street; in the public square she raises her voice. NRS 20 Wisdom cries out in the street; in the squares she raises her voice. CEB 21 Above the noisy crowd, she calls out. At the entrances of the city gates, she has her say: NRS 21 At the busiest corner she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks: CEB 22 "How long will you clueless people love your naïveté, mockers hold their mocking dear, and fools hate knowledge? NRS 22 "How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? CEB 23 You should respond when I correct you. Look, I'll pour out my spirit on you. I'll reveal my words to you. NRS 23 Give heed to my reproof; I will pour out my thoughts to you; I will make my words known to you. CEB 24 I invited you, but you rejected me; I stretched out my hand to you, but you paid no attention. NRS 24 Because I have called and you refused, have stretched out my hand and no one heeded, CEB 25 You ignored all my advice, and you didn't want me to correct you. NRS 25 and because you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof, CEB 26 So I'll laugh at your disaster; I'll make fun of you when dread comes over you, NRS 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when panic strikes you, CEB 27 when terror hits you like a hurricane, and your disaster comes in like a tornado, when distress and oppression overcome you. NRS 27 when panic strikes you like a storm, and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you. CEB 28 Then they will call me, but I won't answer; they will seek me, but won't find me NRS 28 Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently, but will not find me. CEB 29 because they hated knowledge and didn't choose the fear of the LORD. NRS 29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord, CEB 30 They didn't want my advice; they rejected all my corrections. NRS 30 would have none of my counsel, and despised all my reproof, CEB 31 They will eat from the fruit of their way, and they'll be full of their own schemes. NRS 31 therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way and be sated with their own devices. CEB 32 The immature will die because they turn away; smugness will destroy fools. NRS 32 For waywardness kills the simple, and the complacency of fools destroys them; CEB 33 Those who obey me will dwell securely, untroubled by the dread of harm." NRS 33 but those who listen to me will be secure and will live at ease, without dread of disaster."
