First Reading for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

Proverbs 9:1-6

Summary: Wisdom invites the naive and senseless to partake of her food and wine, urging them to abandon folly and embrace a life of understanding.

Invitation from Wisdom

Wisdom has built her house, she has set up her seven columns; she has dressed her meat, mixed her wine, yes, she has spread her table.

She has sent out her maidens; she calls from the heights out over the city: “Let whoever is simple turn in here; To the one who lacks understanding, she says, Come, eat of my food, and drink of the wine I have mixed! Forsake foolishness that you may live; advance in the way of understanding.”
