Passage: Proverbs 9:1-18

Proverbs 9:1-18 – Woman Wisdom and Woman Folly

Summary

Listening to Woman Wisdom leads to life; listening to Woman Folly means death.

Analysis

Continuing with the theme of chapter 8, here are two contrasting pictures of Woman Wisdom and Woman Folly. Those who listen to the call of Woman Wisdom find life (v. 6); those who listen to Woman Folly end up as guests in the depths of Sheol (v. 18)! In between these two pictures is a restatement of the theme sounded in 1:7, this time with benefits of finding wisdom added (vv. 10-12).
