Proverbs 9

9:1 Wisedome hath builded her house: she hath hewen out her seuen pillars. 9:2 She hath killed her beastes; she hath mingled her wine: she hath also furnished her table. 9:3 She hath sent forth her maidens; she cryeth vpon the highest places of the citie. 9:4 Who so is simple, let him turne in hither: as for him that wanteth vnderstanding, she sayth to him: 9:5 Come, eate of my bread, and drinke of the wine, which I haue mingled. 9:6 Forsake the foolish, and liue; and goe in the way of vnderstanding. 9:7 He that reproueth a scorner, getteth to himselfe shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man, getteth himselfe a blot. 9:8 Reproue not a scorner, lest hee hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and hee will loue thee. 9:9 Giue instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a iust man, and he will increase in learning. 9:10 The feare of the Lord is the beginning of wisedome: and the knowledge of the holy is vnderstanding. 9:11 For by me thy dayes shall be multiplied: and the yeeres of thy life shalbe increased. 9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thy selfe: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt beare it. 9:13 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, & knoweth nothing. 9:14 For she sitteth at the doore of her house on a seate, in the high places of the Citie: 9:15 To call passengers who go right on their wayes: 9:16 Who so is simple, let him turne in hither: and as for him that wanteth vnderstanding, she saith to him; 9:17 Stollen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. 9:18 But hee knoweth not that the dead are there, and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
