Proverbs 9 - King James 3 - The Literal Traslation

The Way of Wisdom

1. Wisdom has built her house; she has carved out her seven pillars;

2. she has slaughtered her slaughter; she has mixed her wine; she has also set her table.

3. She has sent out her maidens; she cries on the heights of the city;

4. One who is of simplicity, turn in here; one lacking heart, she says to him,

5. Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine I have mixed.

6. Forsake simplicity, and live, and go straight in the way of understanding.

7. He rebuking one scorning takes shame for himself, and one reproving a wicked one has his own blemish.

8. Do not reprove one scorning, lest he hate you; reprove a wise one, and he will love you.

9. Give to a wise one, and he will be more wise; cause a just one to know and he will add to learning.

10. The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy Ones is understanding.

11. For by Me your days shall increase and shall be added to you the years of life.

12. If you are wise, you shall be wise for yourself, but if you scorn, you alone shall bear it.

The Way of Folly

13. A woman of foolishness is noisy; one of simplicity, and she knows not what.

14. And she sits at the door of her house, in a seat in the high places of the city,

15. to call those passing in the way, who are going straight on their paths:

16. One of simplicity turn aside here. And to the one lacking heart, she says to him:

17. Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.

18. But he does not know that the departed spirits are there; In the depths of Sheol are her called ones.
