020:009:001
Wisdom hath builded her house,
she hath hewn out her seven pillars:


020:009:002
She hath killed her beasts;
she hath mingled her wine;
she hath also furnished her table.


020:009:003
She hath sent forth her maidens:
she crieth upon the highest places of the city,


020:009:004
Whoso is simple,
let him turn in hither:
as for him that wanteth understanding,
she saith to him,


020:009:005
Come,
eat of my bread,
and drink of the wine which I have mingled.


020:009:006
Forsake the foolish,
and live;
and go in the way of understanding.


020:009:007
He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame:
and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.


020:009:008
Reprove not a scorner,
lest he hate thee:
rebuke a wise man,
and he will love thee.


020:009:009
Give instruction to a wise man,
and he will be yet wiser:
teach a just man,
and he will increase in learning.


020:009:010
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:
and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.


020:009:011
For by me thy days shall be multiplied,
and the years of thy life shall be increased.


020:009:012
If thou be wise,
thou shalt be wise for thyself:
but if thou scornest,
thou alone shalt bear it.


020:009:013
A foolish woman is clamorous:
she is simple,
and knoweth nothing.


020:009:014
For she sitteth at the door of her house,
on a seat in the high places of the city,


020:009:015
To call passengers who go right on their ways:


020:009:016
Whoso is simple,
let him turn in hither:
and as for him that wanteth understanding,
she saith to him,


020:009:017
Stolen waters are sweet,
and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.


020:009:018
But he knoweth not that the dead are there;
and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
