Proverbs 9

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 9 talks about wisdom and folly. We are told that wisdom, the fundamental tool for living, starts with the fear of God. And it is this fear that leas to a knowledge of Him.

16 “Let all who are simple come to my house!”
To those who have no sense she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet;
food eaten in secret is delicious!”

Interesting passage… how devious of this women. She invites those who are stupid to her home so she can take advantage of them. Stolen water is sweet and food not shared is delicious. Selfishness and our inner desires bring out the worst. This act lacks wisdom. God calls this women foolish

13 Folly is an unruly woman;
she is simple and knows nothing.
