Proverbs 9:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 She has sent out her maids, and she calls1 from the highest point of the city.2 4 "Let all who are simple3 come in here!" she says to those who lack judgment.4 5 "Come,5 eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed.6 6 Leave your simple ways and you will live;7 walk in the way of understanding.8 7 "Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse.9 8 Do not rebuke a mocker10 or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you.11 9 Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.12 10 "The fear of the LORD 13 is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One14 is understanding.15 11 For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.16 12 If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer." 13 The woman Folly is loud;17 she is undisciplined and without knowledge.18
