Proverbs 9

9:1 Wisdom hath builded her house, She hath hewn out her pillars--seven. 9:2 She hath slaughtered her slaughter, She hath mingled her wine, Yea, she hath arranged her table. 9:3 She hath sent forth her damsels, She crieth on the tops of the high places of the city: 9:4 `Who [is] simple let him turn aside hither.' Whoso lacketh heart: she hath said to him, 9:5 `Come, eat of my bread, And drink of the wine I have mingled. 9:6 Forsake ye, the simple, and live, And be happy in the way of understanding. 9:7 The instructor of a scorner Is receiving for it--shame, And a reprover of the wicked--his blemish. 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee, Give reproof to the wise, and he loveth thee. 9:9 Give to the wise, and he is wiser still, Make known to the righteous, And he increaseth learning. 9:10 The commencement of wisdom [is] the fear of Jehovah, And a knowledge of the Holy Ones [is] understanding. 9:11 For by me do thy days multiply, And added to thee are years of life. 9:12 If thou hast been wise, thou hast been wise for thyself, And thou hast scorned--thyself bearest [it] .  9:13 A foolish woman [is] noisy, Simple, and hath not known what. 9:14 And she hath sat at the opening of her house, On a throne--the high places of the city, 9:15 To call to those passing by the way, Who are going straight [on] their paths. 9:16 `Who [is] simple let him turn aside hither.' And whoso lacketh heart--she said to him, 9:17 `Stolen waters are sweet, And hidden bread is pleasant.' 9:18 And he hath not known that Rephaim [are] there, In deep places of Sheol her invited ones!
