Proverbs 1:20-33

NCV 20 Wisdom is like a woman shouting in the street; she raises her voice in the city squares. NIV 20 Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; NCV 21 She cries out in the noisy street and shouts at the city gates: NIV 21 on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech: NCV 22 "You fools, how long will you be foolish? How long will you make fun of wisdom and hate knowledge? NIV 22 “How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? NCV 23 If only you had listened when I corrected you, I would have told you what's in my heart; I would have told you what I am thinking. NIV 23 Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings. NCV 24 I called, but you refused to listen; I held out my hand, but you paid no attention. NIV 24 But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, NCV 25 You did not follow my advice and did not listen when I corrected you. NIV 25 since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, NCV 26 So I will laugh when you are in trouble. I will make fun when disaster strikes you, NIV 26 I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you— NCV 27 when disaster comes over you like a storm, when trouble strikes you like a whirlwind, when pain and trouble overwhelm you. NIV 27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. NCV 28 "Then you will call to me, but I will not answer. You will look for me, but you 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, NCV 29 It is because you rejected knowledge and did not choose to respect the Lord. NIV 29 since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD. NCV 30 You did not accept my advice, and you rejected my correction. NIV 30 Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, NCV 31 So you will get what you deserve; you will get what you planned for others. NIV 31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. NCV 32 Fools will die because they refuse to listen; they will be destroyed because they do not care. NIV 32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; NCV 33 But those who listen to me will live in safety and be at peace, without fear of injury." NIV 33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.”
