Proverbs 9:1 Wisdom hath built 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 Whoever [is] simple, let him turn in hither: [as for] him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Proverbs 9:5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine [which] I have mingled. Proverbs 9:6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding. Proverbs 9:7 He that reproveth a scorner, getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked [man getteth] himself a blot. Proverbs 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he shall hate thee: rebuke 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 just [man], and he will increase in learning. Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy [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 shalt be wise for thyself: but [if] thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear [it].
Proverbs 9:13 A foolish woman [is] clamorous: [she is] simple, and knoweth nothing. Proverbs 9:14 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, Proverbs 9:15 To call passengers who go right on their ways:
and error of folly.
Proverbs 9:16 Whoever [is] simple, let him turn in hither: and [as for] him that wanteth 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; [and that] her guests [are] in the depths of hell.
