Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square;
King James Bible
Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
American Standard Version
Wisdom crieth aloud in the street; She uttereth her voice in the broad places;
Young's Literal Translation
Wisdom in an out-place crieth aloud, In broad places she giveth forth her voice,
Proverbs 1:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Wisdom crieth - Here wisdom is again personified, as it is frequently, throughout this book; where nothing is meant but the teachings given to man, either by Divine revelation or the voice of the Holy Spirit in the heart. And this voice of wisdom is opposed to the seducing language of the wicked mentioned above. This voice is everywhere heard, in public, in private, in the streets, and in the house. Common sense, universal experience, and the law of justice written on the heart, as well as the law of God, testify against rapine and wrong of every kind.
