Geneva Study Bible
   1: Wisdom hath builded her house; She hath hewn out her seven pillars:
   2: She hath killed her beasts; She hath mingled her wine; She hath also furnished her table:
   3: She hath sent forth her maidens; She crieth upon the highest places of the city:
   4: Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: As for him that is void of understanding, she saith to him,
   5: Come, eat ye of my bread, And drink of the wine which I have mingled.
   6: Leave off, ye simple ones, and live; And walk in the way of understanding.
   7: He that correcteth a scoffer getteth to himself reviling; And he that reproveth a wicked man [getteth] himself a blot.
   8: Reprove not a scoffer, lest he hate thee: Reprove a wise man, and he will love thee.
   9: Give [instruction] to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: Teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.
   10: The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
   11: For by me thy days shall be multiplied, And the years of thy life shall be increased.
   12: If thou art wise, thou art wise for thyself; And if thou scoffest, thou alone shalt bear it.
   13: The foolish woman is clamorous; [She is] simple, and knoweth nothing.
   14: And she sitteth at the door of her house, On a seat in the high places of the city,
   15: To call to them that pass by, Who go right on their ways:
   16: Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither; And as for him that is void of understanding, she saith to him,
   17: Stolen waters are sweet, And bread [eaten] in secret is pleasant.
   18: But he knoweth not that the dead are there; That her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
