The Way of Wisdom by Richard Sherrer 08/31/21 Wisdom versus Foolishness Proverbs 9:1-6
Wisdom has built her house, Which has seven towers; As she waits for her spouse, Patiently for hours. She has slaughtered her beast, While mixing her wine; Has prepared for a feast, When her beau comes to dine. She sends forth her maidens, To call from high places; The loneliness frightens ,Without his embraces. Whoever is simple, To let him turn in here; As she wears her wimple, To come and calm her fear. For he does lack some sense, Lacking understanding; But is a good defense, What life is demanding. Come here and eat her bread, Quench thirst and drink her wine; Feast of what she has fed, Being his concubine. Exit the simple ways, Leave the foolish and live; For insight all your days, So that God will forgive.
