Wisdom’s Invitation1Wisdom has a built her house,
She has hewn out her seven pillars;
2She has ▼
▼ Lit slaughtered her slaughter, c prepared her food, she has d mixed her wine;
She has also e set her table;
3She has f sent out her maidens, she g calls
From the h tops of the heights of the city:
4 i “Whoever is ▼naive, let him turn in here!”
To him who k lacks ▼
▼ Lit heartunderstanding she says,
5“Come m eat of my food
And drink of the wine I have mixed.
▼ Or Forsake the simple ones“Forsake your folly and o live,
And p proceed in the way of understanding.”
7He who q corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself,
And he who reproves a wicked man gets ▼
▼ Lit a blemishinsults for himself.
8 s Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you,
t Reprove a wise man and he will love you.
9Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser,
Teach a righteous man and he will u increase his learning.
10The v fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11For w by me your days will be multiplied,
And years of life will be added to you.
12If you are wise, you are wise x for yourself,
And if you y scoff, you alone will bear it.
▼ Or foolish womanwoman of folly is aa boisterous,
She is ▼naive and ac knows nothing.
14She sits at the doorway of her house,
On a seat by ad the high places of the city,
15Calling to those who pass by,
Who are making their paths straight:
16 ae “Whoever is ▼naive, let him turn in here,”
And to him who lacks ▼
▼ Lit heartunderstanding she says,
17“Stolen water is sweet;
And ah bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18But he does not know that the ▼
▼ Lit departed spiritsdead are there,
That her guests are in the aj depths of Sheol.
