Proverbs 9
New American Standard Bible 1995Hebrew Study Bible
1Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars;1חָ֭כְמוֹת בָּנְתָ֣ה בֵיתָ֑הּ חָצְבָ֖ה עַמּוּדֶ֣יהָ שִׁבְעָֽה׃
2She has prepared her food, she has mixed her wine; She has also set her table;2טָבְחָ֣ה טִ֭בְחָהּ מָסְכָ֣ה יֵינָ֑הּ אַ֝֗ף עָֽרְכָ֥ה שֻׁלְחָנָֽהּ׃
3She has sent out her maidens, she calls From the tops of the heights of the city:3שָֽׁלְחָ֣ה נַעֲרֹתֶ֣יהָ תִקְרָ֑א עַל־ גַּ֝פֵּ֗י מְרֹ֣מֵי קָֽרֶת׃
4"Whoever is naive, let him turn in here!" To him who lacks understanding she says,4מִי־ פֶ֭תִי יָסֻ֣ר הֵ֑נָּה חֲסַר־ לֵ֝֗ב אָ֣מְרָה לּֽוֹ׃
5"Come, eat of my food And drink of the wine I have mixed.5לְ֭כוּ לַחֲמ֣וּ בְֽלַחֲמִ֑י וּ֝שְׁת֗וּ בְּיַ֣יִן מָסָֽכְתִּי׃
6"Forsake your folly and live, And proceed in the way of understanding."6עִזְב֣וּ פְתָאיִ֣ם וִֽחְי֑וּ וְ֝אִשְׁר֗וּ בְּדֶ֣רֶךְ בִּינָֽה׃
7He who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself, And he who reproves a wicked man gets insults for himself.7יֹ֤סֵ֨ר ׀ לֵ֗ץ לֹקֵ֣חַֽ ל֣וֹ קָל֑וֹן וּמוֹכִ֖יחַ לְרָשָׁ֣ע מוּמֽוֹ׃
8Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you, Reprove a wise man and he will love you.8אַל־ תּ֣וֹכַח לֵ֭ץ פֶּן־ יִשְׂנָאֶ֑ךָּ הוֹכַ֥ח לְ֝חָכָ֗ם וְיֶאֱהָבֶֽךָּ׃
9Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.9תֵּ֣ן לְ֭חָכָם וְיֶחְכַּם־ ע֑וֹד הוֹדַ֥ע לְ֝צַדִּ֗יק וְי֣וֹסֶף לֶֽקַח׃ פ
10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.10תְּחִלַּ֣ת חָ֭כְמָה יִרְאַ֣ת יְהוָ֑ה וְדַ֖עַת קְדֹשִׁ֣ים בִּינָֽה׃
11For by me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you.11כִּי־ בִ֭י יִרְבּ֣וּ יָמֶ֑יךָ וְיוֹסִ֥יפוּ לְּ֝ךָ֗ שְׁנ֣וֹת חַיִּֽים׃
12If you are wise, you are wise for yourself, And if you scoff, you alone will bear it.12אִם־ חָ֭כַמְתָּ חָכַ֣מְתָּ לָּ֑ךְ וְ֝לַ֗צְתָּ לְֽבַדְּךָ֥ תִשָּֽׂא׃
13The woman of folly is boisterous, She is naive and knows nothing.13אֵ֣שֶׁת כְּ֭סִילוּת הֹֽמִיָּ֑ה פְּ֝תַיּ֗וּת וּבַל־ יָ֥דְעָה מָּֽה׃
14She sits at the doorway of her house, On a seat by the high places of the city,14וְֽ֭יָשְׁבָה לְפֶ֣תַח בֵּיתָ֑הּ עַל־ כִּ֝סֵּ֗א מְרֹ֣מֵי קָֽרֶת׃
15Calling to those who pass by, Who are making their paths straight:15לִקְרֹ֥א לְעֹֽבְרֵי־ דָ֑רֶךְ הַֽ֝מְיַשְּׁרִ֗ים אֹֽרְחוֹתָֽם׃
16"Whoever is naive, let him turn in here," And to him who lacks understanding she says,16מִי־ פֶ֭תִי יָסֻ֣ר הֵ֑נָּה וַחֲסַר־ לֵ֝֗ב וְאָ֣מְרָה לּֽוֹ׃
17"Stolen water is sweet; And bread eaten in secret is pleasant."17מַֽיִם־ גְּנוּבִ֥ים יִמְתָּ֑קוּ וְלֶ֖חֶם סְתָרִ֣ים יִנְעָֽם׃
18But he does not know that the dead are there, That her guests are in the depths of Sheol.18וְֽלֹא־ יָ֭דַע כִּֽי־ רְפָאִ֣ים שָׁ֑ם בְּעִמְקֵ֖י שְׁא֣וֹל קְרֻאֶֽיהָ׃ פ
