Proverbs 9

9:1 Wisdom hath built her house, she hath hewn out her seven
9:2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she
 hath also furnished her table.
9:3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest
 places of the city,
9:4 Whoever [is] simple, let him turn in hither: [as for] him
 that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
9:5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine [which] I have
9:6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of
9:7 He that reproveth a scorner, getteth to himself shame: and
 he that rebuketh a wicked [man getteth] himself a blot.
9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he shall hate thee: rebuke a
 wise man, and he will love thee.
9:9 Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will be yet
 wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning.
9:10 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: and the
 knowledge of the holy [is] understanding.
9:11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of
 thy life shall be increased.
9:12 If thou art wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but [if]
 thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear [it].
9:13 A foolish woman [is] clamorous: [she is] simple, and
 knoweth nothing.
9:14 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the
 high places of the city,
9:15 To call passengers who go right on their ways:
9:16 Whoever [is] simple, let him turn in hither: and [as for]
 him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
9:17 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread [eaten] in secret is
9:18 But he knoweth not that the dead [are] there; [and that]
 her guests [are] in the depths of hell.
