House Of Seven Pillars
1 Wisdom has built her house;
she has set up its seven pillars.
It is often said that, in the scriptures,
seven is the number of fulfillment and perfection.
Wisdom is fulfilled and completed.
Wisdom is stable.
She is built on a perfect foundation.
An Unruly Woman Delivers The Senseless
To The Realm Of The Dead.
13 Folly is an unruly woman;
she is simple and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the door of her house,
on a seat at the highest point of the city,
15 calling out to those who pass by,
who go straight on their way,
16 “Let all who are simple come to my house!”
To those who have no sense she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet;
food eaten in secret is delicious!”
18 But little do they know that the dead are there,
that her guests are deep in the realm of the dead.
Folly is an unruly woman, simple and ignorant.
Her promises send stupid fools to their deaths.

Instructing The Wise And The Righteous
Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;
teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.
Instruction makes the wise wiser
and the righteous more knowledgeable.
Rebuke The Wise, Not The Mocker
Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you;
rebuke the wise and they will love you.
Mockers hate rebuke.
The Wise profit from it.
Your rebuke will be rewarded accordingly.
