Wisdom’s Banquet

1 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn her seven pillars. 2 She has slaughtered her slaughtering, mixed her wine, [and] also set her table. 3 She has sent her servant girls,a she calls upon the wings of the high places of town, 4 "Whoever [is] simple, let him turn here." As for the one who lacks {sense},b she says to him, 5 "Come, eat with my bread; drink with the wine I have mixed. 6 Lay aside simplicity and live; walk in the way of understanding." 7 He who corrects a scoffer gains abuse for himself, and he who rebukes the wicked {gets hurt}.c 8 Do not rebuke a scoffer, lest he hate you; rebuke the wise and he will love you. 9 Give to a wise one and he will become more wise; {teach}d a righteous one and he will increase learning.
