Unchecked Copy BoxPro 9:1 - Wisdom hath built her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 9:2 - she hath slaughtered her cattle, she hath mingled her wine, she hath also prepared her table;
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 9:3 - she hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the summits of the high places of the city,

Unchecked Copy BoxPro 9:15 - to call passers-by who go right on their ways:
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 9:16 - Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither. And to him that is void of understanding she saith,
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 9:17 - Stolen waters are sweet, and the bread of secrecy is pleasant.
Unchecked Copy BoxPro 9:18 - But he knoweth not that the dead are there; that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
