"Come,1 eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed.26
Leave your simple ways and you will live;3 walk in the way of understanding.47
"Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse.58
Do not rebuke a mocker6 or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you.79
Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.810
"The fear of the LORD 9 is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One10 is understanding.1111
For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.1212
If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer."
The woman Folly is loud;13 she is undisciplined and without knowledge.1414
She sits at the door of her house, on a seat at the highest point of the city,1515
calling out16 to those who pass by, who go straight on their way.
