Proverbs 9 : 1 - 11

Chapter 9

1Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars;
2She has slaughtered her meat, She has mixed her wine, She has also furnished her table.
3She has sent out her maidens, She cries out from the highest places of the city,
4"Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!" As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
5"Come, eat of my bread And drink of the wine I have mixed.
6Forsake foolishness and live, And go in the way of understanding.
7"He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself, And he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself.
8Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you; Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
9Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still 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 One is understanding.
11For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you.
