Proverbs 9:12-18, Lacking Understanding


12If you are wise, you are wise for yourself,

And if you scoff, you alone will bear it.

13The woman of folly is boisterous,

She is naive and knows nothing.

14She sits at the doorway of her house,

On a seat by the high places of the city,

15Calling to those who pass by,

Who are making their paths straight:

16″Whoever is naive, let him turn in here,”

And to him who lacks understanding she says,

17″Stolen water is sweet;

And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”

18But he does not know that the dead are there,

That her guests are in the depths of Sheol.

Action: Who is the woman of folly? How could I avoid falling into her trap?
