She has sent out her female servants;
she calls out from the tops of the heights of the town, Bible

“sent out her servant–girls.” The Hebrew word naarah (#05291 נַעֲרָה) generally refers to a young unmarried girl, who in this case, because they are the young women belonging to Wisdom, are her “servant-girls” or perhaps better in the culture, her “slave girls.” Because it could be hard to tell when a feast would be ready, it was customary, particularly in a small town or village, for the wealthy person who was hosting a feast to send out his servants to let everyone know it was time to come to the feast (cp. Matt. 22:3).
