Proverbs 9:1 Wisdom hath builded her house; She hath hewn out her seven pillars: Proverbs 9:2 She hath killed her beasts; She hath mingled her wine; She hath also furnished her table: Proverbs 9:3 She hath sent forth her maidens; She crieth upon the highest places of the city:
and doctrine of wisdom.
Proverbs 9:4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: As for him that is void of understanding, she saith to him, Proverbs 9:5 Come, eat ye of my bread, And drink of the wine which I have mingled. Proverbs 9:6 Leave off, ye simple ones, and live; And walk in the way of understanding. Proverbs 9:7 He that correcteth a scoffer getteth to himself reviling; And he that reproveth a wicked man [getteth] himself a blot. Proverbs 9:8 Reprove not a scoffer, lest he hate thee: Reprove a wise man, and he will love thee. Proverbs 9:9 Give [instruction] to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: Teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning. Proverbs 9:10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, And the years of thy life shall be increased. Proverbs 9:12 If thou art wise, thou art wise for thyself; And if thou scoffest, thou alone shalt bear it.
Proverbs 9:13 The foolish woman is clamorous; [She is] simple, and knoweth nothing. Proverbs 9:14 And she sitteth at the door of her house, On a seat in the high places of the city, Proverbs 9:15 To call to them that pass by, Who go right on their ways:
and error of folly.
Proverbs 9:16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither; And as for him that is void of understanding, she saith to him, Proverbs 9:17 Stolen waters are sweet, And bread [eaten] in secret is pleasant. Proverbs 9:18 But he knoweth not that the dead are there; That her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
