Bible: Proverbs 9:1-6

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.

9:4Whoever is naive, let him turn in here,”

she says 6  to those 7  who lack understanding. 8 

9:5Come, eat 9  some of my food,

and drink some of the wine I have mixed. 10 

9:6 Abandon your foolish ways 11  so that you may live, 12 

and proceed 13  in the way of understanding.”
