King James Bible : Proverbs : Chapter 9


9:1
Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
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
Whoso 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 mingled.
9:6
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
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 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 be 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
Whoso 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 pleasant.
9:18
But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
