This is symbolic of Jesus Christ the wisdom of God (1Co 1:24) sending out His apostles and ministers to cry unto men to repent and come into His church (Mar 6:7, 12; Act 9:15 c/w Act 22:15, 21 c/w Act 26:16-20). a.

She cries in the top of high places, along the roads that are well traveled, and at the entry of the city to gain access to the most amount of people as possible (Pro 1:20-21; Pro 8:2-3). iii. The Lord sent the apostles into all the world, to all nations, and to the uttermost parts of the earth to call men into His kingdom (Mat 28:19; Mar 16:15, 20; Act 1:8). iv. He sent his ministers in the highways and hedges to compel men to come to the feast in His house which He prepared for them (Mat 22:8-10; Luk 14:16-23).
