Proverbs 1:20-33 - The Call Of Lady Wisdom
she raises her voice in the public squares.
she speaks at the entrance of the city gates:
How long will you mockers
and you fools hate knowledge?
then I will pour out my spirit on you
and teach you my words.
extended my hand and no one paid attention,
and did not accept my correction,
I will mock when terror strikes you,
and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
when trouble and stress overcome you.
they will search for me, but won’t find me.
didn’t choose to fear the Lord,
and rejected all my correction,
and be glutted with their own schemes.
and the complacency of fools will destroy them.
and be free from the fear of danger.”
