Proverbs 9

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.
