Bible: Proverbs 8:1-7

The Appeal of Wisdom 1 

8:1 Does not wisdom call out?

Does not understanding raise her voice?

8:2 At the top 2  of the elevated places along the way,

at the intersection 3  of the paths she takes her stand;

8:3 beside the gates opening into 4  the city,

at the entrance of the doorways she cries out: 5 

8:4To you, O people, 6  I call out,

and my voice calls 7  to all mankind. 8 

8:5 You who are naive, discern 9  wisdom!

And you fools, understand discernment! 10 

8:6 Listen, for I will speak excellent things, 11 

and my lips will utter 12  what is right.

8:7 For my mouth 13  speaks truth, 14 

and my lips 15  hate wickedness. 16
