A description of the experience
1 Sophia hath built 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 from 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 mixed.
6 Forsake the foolish and live, and go in the way of understanding.”
7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth for himself shame, and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a reproach.
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 be a scorner, thou alone shall bear it.
13 A foolish woman is clamorous; 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 passers by who go rightly on their ways:
16 “Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither.” And as for him that lacketh understanding, she saith to him,
17 “Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
