Proverbs 9 Text (WEB)
  1. Wisdom has built her house. She has carved out her seven pillars.
  2. She has prepared her meat. She has mixed her wine. She has also set her table.
  3. She has sent out her maidens. She cries from the highest places of the city:
  4. "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!" As for him who is void of understanding, she says to him,
  5. "Come, eat some of my bread, Drink some of the wine which I have mixed!
  6. Leave your simple ways, and live. Walk in the way of understanding."
  7. He who corrects a mocker invites insult. He who reproves a wicked man invites abuse.
  8. Don't reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you. Reprove a wise man, and he will love you.
  9. Instruct a wise man, and he will be still wiser. Teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.
  10. The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom. The knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
  11. For by me your days will be multiplied. The years of your life will be increased.
  12. If you are wise, you are wise for yourself. If you mock, you alone will bear it.
  13. The foolish woman is loud, Undisciplined, and knows nothing.
  14. She sits at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,
  15. To call to those who pass by, who go straight on their ways,
  16. "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here." as for him who is void of understanding, she says to him,
  17. "Stolen water is sweet. Food eaten in secret is pleasant."
  18. But he doesn't know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.

Proverbs 9 Text (Latin)
  1. Sapientia ædificavit sibi domum : excidit columnas septem.
  2. Immolavit victimas suas, miscuit vinum, et proposuit mensam suam.
  3. Misit ancillas suas ut vocarent ad arcem et ad mœnia civitatis.
  4. Si quis est parvulus, veniat ad me. Et insipientibus locuta est :
  5. Venite, comedite panem meum, et bibite vinum quod miscui vobis.
  6. Relinquite infantiam, et vivite, et ambulate per vias prudentiæ.
  7. Qui erudit derisorem, ipse injuriam sibi facit, et qui arguit impium, sibi maculam generat.
  8. Noli arguere derisorem, ne oderit te ; argue sapientem, et diliget te.
  9. Da sapienti occasionem, et addetur ei sapientia ; doce justum, et festinabit accipere.
  10. Principium sapientiæ timor Domini, et scientia sanctorum prudentia.
  11. Per me enim multiplicabuntur dies tui, et addentur tibi anni vitæ.
  12. Si sapiens fueris, tibimetipsi eris ; si autem illusor, solus portabis malum.
  13. Mulier stulta et clamosa, plenaque illecebris, et nihil omnino sciens,
  14. sedit in foribus domus suæ, super sellam in excelso urbis loco,
  15. ut vocaret transeuntes per viam, et pergentes itinere suo :
  16. qui est parvulus declinet ad me. Et vecordi locuta est :
  17. Aquæ furtivæ dulciores sunt, et panis absconditus suavior.
  18. Et ignoravit quod ibi sint gigantes, et in profundis inferni convivæ ejus.
Proverbs 9 Text (KJV)
  1. Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
  2. She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
  3. She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,
  4. Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
  5. Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.
  6. Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
  7. He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.
  8. Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
  9. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
  10. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
  11. For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
  12. If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.
  13. A foolish woman is clamourous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.
  14. For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,
  15. To call passengers who go right on their ways:
  16. Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
  17. Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.
  18. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
