Proverbs 9:1 Wysdome hath buylded her house, and hewen out seuen pillers: Proverbs 9:2 She hath kylled her victuals, powred out her wine, and prepared her table: Proverbs 9:3 She hath sent foorth her maydens to crye vpon the highest place of the citie,
and doctrine of wisdom.
Proverbs 9:4 Who so is without knowledge, let him come hither: And to the vnwise she said, Proverbs 9:5 O come on your way, eate my bread, and drinke my wine [whiche] I haue powred out for you. Proverbs 9:6 Forsake foolishnes, and ye shall lyue: and see that ye go in the way of vnderstandyng. Proverbs 9:7 Whoso reproueth a scornefull person, getteth him selfe dishonour: and he that rebuketh the vngodly, stayneth hym selfe. Proverbs 9:8 Reproue not a scorner, lest he owe thee euyll will: but rebuke a wyse man, and he wyll loue thee. Proverbs 9:9 Geue a discrete man but an occasion, and he wyll be the wyser: teache a righteous man, and he wyll encrease in knowledge. Proverbs 9:10 The feare of the Lorde is the beginning of wisdome: and the knowledge of holy thinges, is vnderstanding. Proverbs 9:11 For thorowe me thy dayes shalbe prolonged, and the yeres of thy life shall be many. Proverbs 9:12 If thou be wise, thy wysdome shal do thy selfe good: but if thou thinkest scorne therof, it shalbe thine owne harme.
Proverbs 9:13 A foolishe retchlesse woman full of wordes, and suche a one as hath no knowledge, Proverbs 9:14 Sitteth at the doore of her house, and in the hye places of the citie, Proverbs 9:15 To call such as go by, and that walke straight in their wayes.
and error of folly.
Proverbs 9:16 Who so is ignoraunt [sayeth she] let hym come hyther: and to the vnwyse she saith, Proverbs 9:17 Stolen waters are sweete, & the bread that is priuily eaten, hath a good taste. Proverbs 9:18 And he doth not consider that they are but dead whiche be there, and that her ghestes are in the deepe of hell.
