"Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?" (Prov. 8:1)—Moffatt suggests: "Is it not Wisdom calling, Knowledge raising her voice?" Smith has: "Does not Wisdom call, and Reason lift up her voice?"
"O men ... sons of man" (Prov. 8:4)—The word translated "men" is "ishim" (that is, men, as distinguished from women); while "man" represents "adam" (meaning "mankind" or "the human race"). In Hebrew idiom the phrase "sons of man" is equivalent to mankind in general.
"Froward or perverse" (Prov. 8:8)—Both of these words mean literally "twisted," and so the translation "tortuous or twisted" has been suggested. Moffatt prefers to render "false or wrong," apparently taking both words in the metaphorical sense of morally twisted.
