Proverbs 9:1-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
The Two Women Invite Passersby to Their Banquets
Woman Wisdom Issues Her Invitation
1 Wisdom has built her house,
she has set up her seven columns;
2 She has prepared her meat, mixed her wine,
yes, she has spread her table.
3 She has sent out her maidservants; she calls
from the heights out over the city:
4 “Let whoever is naive turn in here;
to any who lack sense I say,
5 Come, eat of my food,
and drink of the wine I have mixed!
6 Forsake foolishness that you may live;
advance in the way of understanding.”
