Chapter 9 Scripture

  • 1  Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:

  • 2  She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.

  • 3  She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,

  • 4  Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

  • 5  Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

  • 6  Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

  • 7  He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.

  • 8  Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.

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

  • 10  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

  • 11  For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.

  • 12  If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

  • 13  A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.

  • 14  For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,

  • 15  To call passengers who go right on their ways:

  • 16  Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

  • 17  Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.

  • 18  But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
