  • 1 Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice?
    2 On the heights beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand;
    3 beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud:
    4 "To you, O men, I call, and my cry is to the children of man.
    5 O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense.
    6 Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right,
    7 for my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
    8 All the words of my mouth are righteous; there is nothing twisted or crooked in them.
    9 They are all straight to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge.
    10 Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold,
    11 for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.
    12 "I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, and I find knowledge and discretion.
    13 The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
    14 I have counsel and sound wisdom; I have insight; I have strength.
    15 By me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just;
    16 by me princes rule, and nobles, all who govern justly.
    17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
    18 Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness.
    19 My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver.
    20 I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice,
    21 granting an inheritance to those who love me, and filling their treasuries.

Thinking & Understanding
Solomon personifies wisdom. Unlike the adulteress who seduces quietly in a secluded place, wisdom speaks loudly in public. Wisdom offers knowledge, prudence, and discernment so that we may distinguish deceit from truth and live in an upright way (vv. 1-12). Wisdom begins with hating evil and fearing God and makes us depart from pride, arrogance, wicked deeds, and false words. Those who love and seek wisdom will gain wisdom, and those who gain wisdom will enjoy honour, glory, riches, and smooth paths (vv. 13-21).


Who is God?
Vv. 1-3 Wisdom openly invites all people onto the path of life. Even in this very moment, God’s word is clearly teaching us wrong from right and demonstrating the proper path. Whether or not we listen is up to us. Am I responding sensitively to the call of wisdom?


What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 17-21 If we seek riches, we will become corrupt, but if we seek wisdom, we will become rich. Let’s become people who seek God, the giver of blessings, more than we seek blessings from God.


Prayer
Lord, help me to love and fear you above all else and to live humbly seeking wisdom.
