    If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

    World English Bible

    If you are wise, you are wise for yourself. If you mock, you alone will
    bear it.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 9:12

    If thou be wise, thou shalt be so to thyself: and if a scorner, thou alone shalt
    bear the evil.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    If thou
    art wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:12

    Si fueres sabio, para ti lo serás; mas si fueres burlador, pagarás tú solo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 9:12

    Verse 12. If thou be
    wise ] It is thy own interest to be religious. Though thy example may be very useful to thy neighbours and friends, yet the chief benefit is to thyself. But if thou scorn-refuse to receive-the doctrines of wisdom, and die in thy sins, thou alone shalt suffer the vengeance of an offended God.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. If thou be
    wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself , etc.] He is wise that harkens to Wisdom’s advice, that obeys her call, turns in to her house, and becomes her guest; and such an one is wise for himself, it is for his own good, profit, and advantage; for the good of his soul, for his present peace and comfort, and for his future bliss and happiness. It is not for her own sake that Wisdom presses her exhortations, and is so urgent on men to take her counsel and advice; it is for their own good; their wisdom is not profitable to her, but to themselves; they, and they only, reap the advantage and usefulness of it; (see Job 22:2,3). The Syriac and Arabic versions add, “and unto thy friends”; and the Septuagint version is, “if thou becomest wise to thyself, thou wilt be wise to neighbours”; they will receive some profit by it; but [if] thou scornest, thou alone shall bear [it] ; the evil, as the Vulgate Latin; the sin of scorning, and the punishment due unto it; it will bring no real hurt to Wisdom, or Christ, nor to his ministers, nor to his Gospel and ordinances, scoffed at; all the hurt will redound to the scoffer himself; and he alone shall bear it, and feel the smart of it, and all the dreadful consequences following upon it. The Septuagint version here adds the following clause, “he that trusteth in lies, he feedeth on winds; the same pursues birds flying; for he forsakes the ways of his own vineyard; he wanders from the paths of his own husbandry; he passes through a desert without water, and a land destined to thirst, and he gathers unfruitfulness with his hands;” and which are retained in the Syriac and Arabic version, but are not in the Hebrew text.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 -
    Christ has prepared ordinances to which his people are admitted, and by which nourishment is given here to those that believe in him, as wel as mansions in heaven hereafter. The ministers of the gospel go fort to invite the guests. The call is general, and shuts out none that d not shut out themselves. Our Saviour came, not to call the righteous but sinners; not the wise in their own eyes, who say they see. We mus keep from the company and foolish pleasures of the ungodly, or we neve can enjoy the pleasures of a holy life. It is vain to seek the compan of wicked men in the hope of doing them good; we are far more likely to be corrupted by them. It is not enough to forsake the foolish, we mus join those that walk in wisdom. There is no true wisdom but in the way of religion, no true life but in the end of that way. Here is the happiness of those that embrace it. A man cannot be profitable to God it is for our own good. Observe the shame and ruin of those who sligh it. God is not the Author of sin: and Satan can only tempt, he cannot force. Thou shalt bear the loss of that which thou scornest: it wil add to thy condemnation.
