Bible: Proverbs 9
The Consequences of Accepting Wisdom or Folly 1
9:1 Wisdom has built her house;
she has carved out its seven pillars. 2
9:2 She has prepared her meat, 3 she has mixed her wine;
she also has arranged her table. 4
9:3 She has sent out her female servants;
she calls out on the highest places 5 of the city.
9:4 “Whoever is naive, let him turn in here,”
9:5 “Come, eat 9 some of my food,
and drink some of the wine I have mixed. 10
and proceed 13 in the way of understanding.”
whoever reproves a wicked person receives 17 abuse.
reprove a wise person and he will love you.
9:11 For because 28 of me your days will be many,
and years will be added 29 to your life.
9:12 If you are wise, you are wise to your own advantage, 30
9:14 So she sits at the door of her house,
on a seat at the highest point of the city,
who go straight 42 on their way.
9:16 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here,”
she says to those who lack understanding. 43
9:17 “Stolen waters 44 are sweet,
and food obtained in secret 45 is pleasant!”
that her guests are in the depths of the grave. 48
