Proverbs 9:1-12 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Wisdom hath built her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars; 2 she hath slaughtered her cattle, a she hath mingled her wine, she hath also prepared b her table; 3 she hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the summits of the high places of the city, 4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither. To him that is void of understanding, c she saith, 5 Come, eat ye of my bread, and drink of the wine that I have mingled. 6 Forsake follies d and live, and go in the way of intelligence. 7 He that instructeth a scorner getteth to himself shame; and he that reproveth a wicked [man] [getteth] to himself a blot. 8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee; reprove a wise [man], and he will love thee. 9 Impart to a wise [man], and he will become yet wiser; teach a righteous [man], and he will increase learning. 10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of e wisdom; and the knowledge of the Holy f is intelligence. 11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and years of life shall be added to thee. 12 If thou art wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself; and if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.
