Wisdom Calls

Wisdom has built her house; she has set up its seven pillars. She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table. She has sent out her servants, and she calls from the highest point of the city, “Let all who are simple come to my house!” To those who have no sense she says, “Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed.

La Sagesse a bâti sa maison, Elle a taillé ses sept colonnes. Elle a égorgé une bête, mêlé son vin Et dressé sa table. Elle a envoyé ses servantes, elle crie Sur les points culminants des hauteurs de la ville: Quiconque est stupide, qu’il fasse un détour par ici! A celui qui est dépourvu de sens, elle dit: Venez, mangez de mon pain Et buvez du vin que j’ai mêlé.

Wisdom is calling – can you hear her?
