Readings for the Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost: Proverbs 9:1-6

This Sunday's Old Testament reading comes from Proverbs 9:1-6 (NRSV): 

Wisdom has built her house, 
she has hewn her seven pillars. 
2    She has slaughtered her animals, she has mixed her wine, 
she has also set her table. 
3    She has sent out her servant-girls, she calls
from the highest places in the town, 
4    “You that are simple, turn in here!” 
To those without sense she says, 
5    “Come, eat of my bread
and drink of the wine I have mixed. 
6    Lay aside immaturity, and live, 
and walk in the way of insight.”
