5 “Come, geat of my bread
kand walk in the way of insight.”
8 lDo not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you;
mreprove a wise man, and he will love you.

10 pThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and qthe knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
11 For by me ryour days will be multiplied,
12 sIf you are wise, you are wise for yourself;
she takes a seat on wthe highest places of the town,
who are xgoing straight on their way,
16 y“Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”
17 z“Stolen water is sweet,
