1 ἡ σοφία ᾠκοδόμησεν ἑαυτῇ οἶκον καὶ ὑπήρεισεν στύλους ἑπτά 2 ἔσφαξεν τὰ ἑαυτῆς θύματα ἐκέρασεν εἰς κρατῆρα τὸν ἑαυτῆς οἶνον καὶ ἡτοιμάσατο τὴν ἑαυτῆς τράπεζαν 3 ἀπέστειλεν τοὺς ἑαυτῆς δούλους συγκαλούσα μετὰ ὑψηλοῦ κηρύγματος ἐπὶ κρατῆρα λέγουσα 4 ὅς ἐστιν ἄφρων ἐκκλινάτω πρός με καὶ τοῖς ἐνδεέσι φρενῶν εἶπεν 5 ἔλθατε φάγετε τῶν ἐμῶν ἄρτων καὶ πίετε οἶνον ὃν ἐκέρασα ὑμῖν 6 ἀπολείπετε ἀφροσύνην καὶ ζήσεσθε καὶ ζητήσατε φρόνησιν ἵνα βιώσητε καὶ κατορθώσατε ἐν γνώσει σύνεσιν 1 See, where wisdom has built herself a house, carved out for herself those seven pillars of hers! 2 And now, her sacrificial victims slain, her wine mingled, her banquet spread, 3 this way and that her maidens are dispatched, to city keep and city wall, bidding her guests make haste. 4 Simple hearts, she says, draw near me; and to all that lack learning this is her cry, 5 Come and eat at my table, come and drink of the wine I have brewed for you; 6 say farewell to your childishness, and learn to live; follow all of you in the path that leads to discernment. 1

Sapientia ædificavit sibi domum:
excidit columnas septem.
2
Immolavit victimas suas, miscuit vinum,
et proposuit mensam suam.
3
Misit ancillas suas ut vocarent
ad arcem et ad mœnia civitatis.
4
Si quis est parvulus, veniat ad me.
Et insipientibus locuta est:
5
Venite, comedite panem meum,
et bibite vinum quod miscui vobis.
6
Relinquite infantiam, et vivite,
et ambulate per vias prudentiæ.
7 ὁ παιδεύων κακοὺς λήμψεται ἑαυτῷ ἀτιμίαν ἐλέγχων δὲ τὸν ἀσεβῆ μωμήσεται ἑαυτόν 8 μὴ ἔλεγχε κακούς ἵνα μὴ μισῶσίν σε ἔλεγχε σοφόν καὶ ἀγαπήσει σε 9 δίδου σοφῷ ἀφορμήν καὶ σοφώτερος ἔσται γνώριζε δικαίῳ καὶ προσθήσει τοῦ δέχεσθαι 7 (Rash souls there are, godless souls, that will not be taught or trained; who makes the attempt, gets only injury and abuse for his thanks. 8 With a rash fool never remonstrate; it will make him thy enemy; only the wise are grateful for a remonstrance. 9 Ever the wise profit by the opportunity to become wiser yet; ever the godly are the best learners.[1]) 7

Qui erudit derisorem, ipse injuriam sibi facit,
et qui arguit impium, sibi maculam generat.
8
Noli arguere derisorem, ne oderit te:
argue sapientem, et diliget te.
9
Da sapienti occasionem, et addetur ei sapientia;
doce justum, et festinabit accipere.
10 ἀρχὴ σοφίας φόβος κυρίου καὶ βουλὴ ἁγίων σύνεσις τὸ γὰρ γνῶναι νόμον διανοίας ἐστὶν ἀγαθῆς 11 τούτῳ γὰρ τῷ τρόπῳ πολὺν ζήσεις χρόνον καὶ προστεθήσεταί σοι ἔτη ζωῆς σου 12 υἱέ ἐὰν σοφὸς γένῃ σεαυτῷ σοφὸς ἔσῃ καὶ τοῖς πλησίον ἐὰν δὲ κακὸς ἀποβῇς μόνος ἀναντλήσεις κακά ὃς ἐρείδεται ἐπὶ ψεύδεσιν οὗτος ποιμανεῖ ἀνέμους ὁ {D'} αὐτὸς διώξεται ὄρνεα πετόμενα ἀπέλιπεν γὰρ ὁδοὺς τοῦ ἑαυτοῦ ἀμπελῶνος τοὺς δὲ ἄξονας τοῦ ἰδίου γεωργίου πεπλάνηται διαπορεύεται δὲ δ{I'} ἀνύδρου ἐρήμου καὶ γῆν διατεταγμένην ἐν διψώδεσιν συνάγει δὲ χερσὶν ἀκαρπίαν 10 True wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord; he best discerns, who has knowledge of holy things. 11 Long life I bring thee, and a full tale of years; 12 wisdom thyself shall profit, and misfortune fall only on the rash fools that earned it. 10
Principium sapientiæ timor Domini,
et scientia sanctorum prudentia.

Per me enim multiplicabuntur dies tui,
et addentur tibi anni vitæ.
12
Si sapiens fueris, tibimetipsi eris;
si autem illusor, solus portabis malum.

13 γυνὴ ἄφρων καὶ θρασεῖα ἐνδεὴς ψωμοῦ γίνεται ἣ οὐκ ἐπίσταται αἰσχύνην 14 ἐκάθισεν ἐπὶ θύραις τοῦ ἑαυτῆς οἴκου ἐπὶ δίφρου ἐμφανῶς ἐν πλατείαις 15 προσκαλουμένη τοὺς παριόντας καὶ κατευθύνοντας ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτῶν 16 ὅς ἐστιν ὑμῶν ἀφρονέστατος ἐκκλινάτω πρός με ἐνδεέσι δὲ φρονήσεως παρακελεύομαι λέγουσα 17 ἄρτων κρυφίων ἡδέως ἅψασθε καὶ ὕδατος κλοπῆς γλυκεροῦ 18 ὁ δὲ οὐκ οἶδεν ὅτι γηγενεῖς πα{R'} αὐτῇ ὄλλυνται καὶ ἐπὶ πέτευρον ᾅδου συναντᾷ ἀλλὰ ἀποπήδησον μὴ ἐγχρονίσῃς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ μηδὲ ἐπιστήσῃς τὸ σὸν ὄμμα πρὸς αὐτήν οὕτως γὰρ διαβήσῃ ὕδωρ ἀλλότριον καὶ ὑπερβήσῃ ποταμὸν ἀλλότριον ἀπὸ δὲ ὕδατος ἀλλοτρίου ἀπόσχου καὶ ἀπὸ πηγῆς ἀλλοτρίας μὴ πίῃς ἵνα πολὺν ζήσῃς χρόνον προστεθῇ δέ σοι ἔτη ζωῆς 13 Out upon her silly clamour, the woman that is so crafty, yet knowledge has none! 14 At her door she sits, her chair commanding the city’s height, 15 and cries aloud to such as pass by on their lawful errands. 16 Simple hearts, she says, draw near me, and to all that lack learning this is her cry, 17 Stolen waters are sweetest, and bread is better eating when there is none to see. 18 Who shall warn them that dead men are her company, no guest of hers but is guest of the dark world beneath? 13

Mulier stulta et clamosa,
plenaque illecebris, et nihil omnino sciens,
14
sedit in foribus domus suæ,
super sellam in excelso urbis loco,
15
ut vocaret transeuntes per viam,
et pergentes itinere suo:
16
Qui est parvulus declinet ad me.
Et vecordi locuta est:
17
Aquæ furtivæ dulciores sunt,
et panis absconditus suavior.
18
Et ignoravit quod ibi sint gigantes,
et in profundis inferni convivæ ejus.
