Proverbs 9:7-12 - Wisdom Prolongs Life

7 He instructing him mocking received to himself dishonor: and he reproving to the unjust one, his blemish. 8 Thou shalt not reprove him mocking, lest he shall hate thee: reprove to the wise one and he will love thee. 9 Thou shalt give to the wise one and he will be more wise: make known to the just one and he will add receiving.

10 The beginning of wisdom is the fear of Jehovah, and the knowledge of the holy ones is understanding. 11 For in me thy days shall be multiplied, and years of life shall be added to thee. 12 If thou wert wise, thou wert wise for thyself: and thou mockedst, thou alone shalt suffer.
