RHE 1 Wisdom hath built herself a house, she hath hewn her out seven pillars. NIV 1 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out its seven pillars. RHE 2 She hath slain her victims, mingled her wine, and set forth her table. NIV 2 She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table. RHE 3 She hath sent her maids to invite to the tower, and to the walls of the city: NIV 3 She has sent out her maids, and she calls from the highest point of the city. RHE 4 Whosoever is a little one, let him come to me. And to the unwise she said: NIV 4 "Let all who are simple come in here!" she says to those who lack judgment. RHE 5 Come, eat my bread, and drink the wine which I have mingled for you. NIV 5 "Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed. RHE 6 Forsake childishness, and live, and walk by the ways of prudence. NIV 6 Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of understanding. RHE 7 He that teacheth a scorner, doth an injury to himself; and he that rebuketh a wicked man, getteth himself a blot. NIV 7 "Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse. RHE 8 Rebuke not a scorner, lest he hate thee. Rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. NIV 8 Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you. RHE 9 Give an occasion to a wise man, and wisdom shall be added to him. Teach a just man, and he shall make haste to receive it. NIV 9 Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. RHE 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is prudence. NIV 10 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. RHE 11 For by me shall thy days be multiplied, and years of life shall be added to thee. NIV 11 For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. RHE 12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be so to thyself: and if a scorner, thou alone shalt bear the evil. NIV 12 If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer." RHE 13 A foolish woman and clamorous, and full of allurements, and knowing nothing at all, NIV 13 The woman Folly is loud; she is undisciplined and without knowledge. RHE 14 Sat at the door of her house, upon a seat, in a high place of the city, NIV 14 She sits at the door of her house, on a seat at the highest point of the city, RHE 15 To call them that pass by the way, and go on their journey: NIV 15 calling out to those who pass by, who go straight on their way. RHE 16 He that is a little one, let him turn to me. And to the fool she said: NIV 16 "Let all who are simple come in here!" she says to those who lack judgment. RHE 17 Stolen waters are sweeter, and hidden bread is more pleasant. NIV 17 "Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious!" RHE 18 And he did not know that giants are there, and that her guests are in the depths of hell. NIV 18 But little do they know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of the grave.
