Let us read from the OT.
I’m only gonna be doing part of the OT - not the whole thing.

The OT can be divided into four sections. They are;
The Law,
The History,
The Wisdom,
The Prophecy.

(
I realize this division is not always true.
But this is what I will use for the time being.
)

We will be reading the Wisdom Books. Because there are some things there that people don’t know about.

“The Wisdom of the Jews”

Consisting of the eighteenth thru the twenty-second Books of the OT, which are;
Job,
Psalms,
Proverbs,
Ecclesiastes,
Song of Solomon.

And once again, they will not be done in order.

Proverbs 1

11. If they say, "Come along with us; let's lie in wait for someone's blood, let's waylay some harmless soul;

14. throw in your lot with us, and we will share a common purse"--

“WISDOM CALLS”

Proverbs 1
20. Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares;
21. at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech:
22. "How long will you simple ones love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?

Comments.
Wisdom needs to be treated gently.
She comes to one at a high cost.
But she is priceless beyond cost.
Indeed, life itself.

25. since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke,
26. I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you--
27. when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
