Geneva Study Bible
   1: Wisdom hath builded her house, She hath hewn out her pillars -- seven.
   2: She hath slaughtered her slaughter, She hath mingled her wine, Yea, she hath arranged her table.
   3: She hath sent forth her damsels, She crieth on the tops of the high places of the city:
   4: 'Who [is] simple? let him turn aside hither.' Whoso lacketh heart: she hath said to him,
   5: 'Come, eat of my bread, And drink of the wine I have mingled.
   6: Forsake ye, the simple, and live, And be happy in the way of understanding.
   7: The instructor of a scorner Is receiving for it -- shame, And a reprover of the wicked -- his blemish.
   8: Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee, Give reproof to the wise, and he loveth thee.
   9: Give to the wise, and he is wiser still, Make known to the righteous, And he increaseth learning.
   10: The commencement of wisdom [is] the fear of Jehovah, And a knowledge of the Holy Ones [is] understanding.
   11: For by me do thy days multiply, And added to thee are years of life.
   12: If thou hast been wise, thou hast been wise for thyself, And thou hast scorned -- thyself bearest [it].
   13: A foolish woman [is] noisy, Simple, and hath not known what.
   14: And she hath sat at the opening of her house, On a throne -- the high places of the city,
   15: To call to those passing by the way, Who are going straight [on] their paths.
   16: 'Who [is] simple? let him turn aside hither.' And whoso lacketh heart -- she said to him,
   17: 'Stolen waters are sweet, And hidden bread is pleasant.'
   18: And he hath not known that Rephaim [are] there, In deep places of Sheol her invited ones!
