A Damocles sword is hanging by a thread over the nations of this world and great terror is about to fall on same because the collective love lies instead of the truth. (r. a. note)
Wisdom calls aloud in the streets, she raises her voice in the public squares; she calls out at the street corners, she delivers her message at the city gates.
You simple (deceived, led astray) people, how much longer will you cling to your simple (mindless, witless) ways? How much longer will mockers revel in their mocking and fools (wise in their own eyes) go on hating knowledge?
Pay attention to my warning. To you I will pour out my heart and tell you what I have to say.
Since I have called and you have refused me, since I have beckoned and no one has taken notice, since you have ignored all my advice and rejected all my warnings, I, for my part, shall laugh at your distress, I shall jeer when terror befalls you, when terror befalls you, like a storm, when your distress arrives, like a whirlwind, when ordeal and anguish bear down on you.
Then they will call me, but I shall not answer, they will look eagerly for me and will not find me.
They have hated knowledge, they have not chosen the fear of the LORD (I AM) they have taken no notice of my advice.
They have spurned all my warnings – so they will have to eat the fruits of their own ways of life, and choke themselves with their own scheming.
For the errors of the simple lead to their death, the complacency of fools works their own ruin; but whoever listens to me may live secure, will have quiet, fearing no mischance.’
My child, if you take my words to heart, if you set store by my commandments, tuning your ear to wisdom, tuning your heart to understanding, yes, if your plea is for clear perception, if you cry out for understanding,
if you look for it as though for silver, search for it as though for buried treasure, then you will understand what the fear of the LORD ( I AM) is, and discover the knowledge of God.
For the LORD himself is giver of wisdom, from his mouth issue knowledge and understanding. He reserves his advice for the honest, a shield to those whose ways are sound.
He stands guard over the paths of equity, he keeps watch over the way of those faithful to him. Then you will understand uprightness, equity and fair dealing, the paths that lead to happiness.
When wisdom comes into your heart and knowledge fills your soul with delight, then prudence will be there to watch over you, and understanding will be your guardian
— from those who leave the paths of honesty to walk the roads of darkness: those who find their joy in doing wrong, and their delight in deceitfulness, whose tracks are twisted, and the paths that they tread crooked.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning (the root) of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures for ever.”
The Creator God calls all to repent, be baptized (immersed in water) in Messiah’s name, and keep God’s commandments, laws, judgments, his weekly Sabbath and annual Holy Day Sabbaths, as did the Christ, the son of the great I AM – the Creator-God (r. a note)
