1 Wisdom hath built her [a]house, and hewn out her [b]seven pillars.
2 She hath killed her victuals, drawn her wine, and [c]prepared her table.
3 She hath sent forth her [d]maidens, and crieth upon the highest places of the city, saying,
4 Who so is [e]simple, let him come hither, and to him that is destitute of wisdom, she saith,
5 Come, and eat of my [f]meat, and drink of the wine that I have drawn.
6 Forsake your way, ye foolish, and ye shall live: and walk in the way of understanding.
7 He that reproveth a scorner, purchaseth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh the wicked, getteth himself a [g]blot.
