Proverbs 9:1-6

Wisdom built her house;
she has carved out her seven pillars.
She slaughtered her animals,
mixed her wine,
and set her table.
She sends out her female servants; she issues an invitation
from the top of the city heights:
“Whoever is naive turn aside here,”
she says to those who lack sense.
“Come, eat my food,
and drink the wine I have mixed.
Abandon your simplistic ways and live;
walk in the way of understanding.”
