Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn her seven pillars.
She has slaughtered her animals, she has mixed her wine, she has also set her table.
She has sent out her servant-girls, she calls from the highest places in the town,
"You that are simple, turn in here!" To those without sense she says,
"Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed.
Lay aside immaturity, a and live, and walk in the way of insight."
Whoever corrects a scoffer wins abuse; whoever rebukes the wicked gets hurt.
A scoffer who is rebuked will only hate you; the wise, when rebuked, will love you.
