Proverbs 1:20
Wisdom cries without; she utters her voice in the streets:
Wisdom Calls Aloud

20Wisdom cries without; she utters her voice in the streets: 21She cries in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she utters her words, saying, 22How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? 23Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit to you, I will make known my words to you. 24Because I have called, and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; 25But you have set at nothing all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: 26I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes; 27When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish comes on you. 28Then shall they call on me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: 29For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: 30They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. 31Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. 32For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. 33But whoever listens to me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
