Proverbs 9:1 Wysdome hath buylded her selfe an house, & hewen out seuen pyllers: Proverbs 9:2 she hath kylled her vitayles, poured out her wyne, & prepared her table. Proverbs 9:3 She hath sent forth her maydens to crye vpon the hyest place of þe citie:
and doctrine of wisdom.
Proverbs 9:4 Who so is ignoraunt, let hym come hither. And to the vnwise she sayd: Proverbs 9:5 O come on your way, eat my bred, & drinke my wyne, which I haue poured out for you. Proverbs 9:6 Forsake ignoraunce, & ye shall lyue: & se þt ye go in the way of vnderstandinge. Proverbs 9:7 Who so reproueth a scornefull personne, getteth hym self dishonour: & he that rebuketh þe vngodly stayneth him self. Proverbs 9:8 Reproue not a scorner, lest he owe þe euel wil: but rebuke a wise man, & he wil loue the. Proverbs 9:9 Geue a discrete man but an occasion, & he wilbe the wiser, teache a righteous man, and he will increase. Proverbs 9:10 The feare of the Lorde is the beginning of wisdome, and the knowledge of holy thinges is vnderstandynge. Proverbs 9:11 For thorow me thy dayes shalbe prolonged, and the yeares of thy lyfe shalbe manye. Proverbs 9:12 If thou be wyse thy wysdome shall do thy selfe good: but if thou thynckeste scorne therof, it shalbe thyne owne harme.
Proverbs 9:13 A folysh restles woman, ful of words, and such one as hath no knowledge, Proverbs 9:14 sitteth in the dores of her house vpon a stoole aboue in the cytye, Proverbs 9:15 to cal such as go by, & walke streght in their waies,
and error of folly.
Proverbs 9:16 Who so is ignorant (sayeth she) let him come hyther, and to the vnwyse she sayeth: Proverbs 9:17 stollen waters are swete, and the bread that is preuely eaten, hath a good tast. Proverbs 9:18 But they consyder not that death is there, and that her gestes go doune to hell.
