Geneva Study Bible
   1: Wisdom has built her house. She has carved out her seven pillars.
   2: She has prepared her meat. She has mixed her wine. She has also set her table.
   3: She has sent out her maidens. She cries from the highest places of the city:
   4: "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!" As for him who is void of understanding, she says to him,
   5: "Come, eat some of my bread, Drink some of the wine which I have mixed!
   6: Leave your simple ways, and live. Walk in the way of understanding."
   7: He who corrects a mocker invites insult. He who reproves a wicked man invites abuse.
   8: Don't reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you. Reprove a wise man, and he will love you.
   9: Instruct a wise man, and he will be still wiser. Teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.
   10: The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom. The knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
   11: For by me your days will be multiplied. The years of your life will be increased.
   12: If you are wise, you are wise for yourself. If you mock, you alone will bear it.
   13: The foolish woman is loud, Undisciplined, and knows nothing.
   14: She sits at the door of her house, On a seat in the high places of the city,
   15: To call to those who pass by, Who go straight on their ways,
   16: "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here." As for him who is void of understanding, she says to him,
   17: "Stolen water is sweet. Food eaten in secret is pleasant."
   18: But he doesn't know that the dead are there, That her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
