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