1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
9:1 ¶ Wisdom, hath builded her house, hath hewn out her seven pillars;
9:2 hath slaughtered her beasts, hath mingled her wine, hath even set in order her table;
9:3 hath sent forth her maidens, She crieth aloud, upon the tops of the heights of the city:
9:4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither, as for him that lacketh sense, she saith to him
9:5 Come, feed on my food, and drink of the wine I have mingled;
9:6 Forsake the simple ones, and live, and advance in the way of understanding.
9:7 He that rebuketh a scoffer, getteth to himself contempt, and, he that reproveth a lawless man, [getteth to himself] his shame.
9:8 Do not reprove a scoffer, lest he hate thee, Reprove a wise man, and he will love thee.
9:9 Give to a wise man, and he will be wiser still, Inform a righteous man, and he will increase learning.
9:11 For, by me, shall be multipliedthy days, and there be added to theethe years of life.
9:12 If thou art wise, thou art wise for thyself, but, if thou scoff, alone, shalt thou bear it.
9:13 ¶ The woman Stupidity, is boisterous, so simple that she knoweth not what she would do;
9:14 So she sitteth at the entrance of her house, upon a seat, in the heights of the city;
9:15 To invite them who pass by the way, who are going straight on in their paths:
9:16 Whoso is simple, let him turn aside hither, and, as for him that lacketh sense, she saith to him:
9:17 Stolen waters, will be sweet,and a secret meal, will be pleasant;
9:18 But he knoweth not, that the shades are there; In the depths of hades, are her guests.
