Proverbs 9
New Living Translation
9Wisdom has built her house; she has carved its seven columns.H2454H1129H1004H2672H7651H5982 2She has prepared a great banquet, mixed the wines, and set the table.H2873H2874H4537H3196H6186H7979 3She has sent her servants to invite everyone to come. She calls out from the heights overlooking the city.H7971H5291H7121H1610H4791H7176 4“Come in with me,” she urges the simple. To those who lack good judgment, she says,H6612H5493H2638H3820H559 5“Come, eat my food, and drink the wine I have mixed.H3212H3898H3899H8354H3196H4537 6Leave your simple ways behind, and begin to live; learn to use good judgment.”H5800H6612H2421H833H1870H998 7Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get an insult in return. Anyone who corrects the wicked will get hurt.H3256H3887H3947H7036H3198H7563H3971 8So don’t bother correcting mockers; they will only hate you. But correct the wise, and they will love you.H3198H3887H8130H3198H2450H157 9Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more.H5414H2450H2449H3045H6662H3254H3948 10Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.H3374H3068H8462H2451H1847H6918H998 11Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life.H3117H7235H8141H2416H3254 12If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.H2449H2449H3887H5375

Folly Calls for a Hearing

13The woman named Folly is brash. She is ignorant and doesn’t know it.H3687H802H1993H6615H1077H3045H4100 14She sits in her doorway on the heights overlooking the city.H3427H6607H1004H3678H4791H7176 15She calls out to men going by who are minding their own business.H7121H5674H1870H3474H734 16“Come in with me,” she urges the simple. To those who lack good judgment, she says,H6612H5493H2638H3820H559 17“Stolen water is refreshing; food eaten in secret tastes the best!”H1589H4325H4985H3899H5643H5276 18But little do they know that the dead are there. Her guests are in the depths of the grave.H3045H7496H7121H6012H7585
