1 John 1:9,“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

DoxologyPraise God, from whom all blessings flow;Praise Him, all creatures here below;Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.—Amen.


Three Main Parts:1) Wisdom’s final exhortation to receive her, vs. 1-6. 2) Introductory principles of wisdom applied, vs. 7-12.3) A final depiction of the adulterous woman “folly”, vs. 13-18


Rival Banquets:1. Preparation for the meal: “Wisdom” – vs. 1-3; “Folly: - vs. 13-15.a. Designation: “Wisdom” – vs. 1a; “Folly: - vs. 13a.

b activity attributes wisdom vs 1a 3 folly vs 13a 15 c calling wisdom vs 3a folly vs 1 5
b. Activity / attributes: “Wisdom” – vs. 1a-3; “Folly: - vs. 13a-15.c. Calling: “Wisdom” – vs. 3a; “Folly: - vs. 15
2 invitation wisdom vs 4 5 folly vs 16 17 a invitation to gullible wisdom vs 4a folly vs 16a
2. Invitation: “Wisdom” – vs. 4-5; “Folly: - vs. 16-17. a. Invitation to gullible: “Wisdom” – vs. 4a; “Folly: - vs. 16a.

b. Invitation to brainless: “Wisdom” – vs. 4b; “Folly: - vs. 16b.c. Offer of symbolic foods: “Wisdom” – vs. 5; “Folly: - vs. 17.

Both sit in the most noticeable places of the city, Prov 8:2, 3; 9:3, cf. vs. 14, and appeal to the naïve, Prov 8:6; 9:5, cf. vs. 16.

Yet “wisdom” offers rewards more valuable than the riches of this world, Prov 8:10, 11, 18, 19, and “folly” recommends the sweetness of “stolen waters” and the pleasantness of “bread eaten in secret”, vs. 17


The guests of “wisdom” receive many blessings, Prov 8:34-35, but those who turn to foolishness perish and pass into the depths of hell, vs. 18.


Prov 9:1,“Has built” BANAH, בָּנָה:“To build, construct or fashion.” Bring something into existence through a particular type of craftsmanship.

Used for the 2 wives of Jacob, Rachel and Leah, who were said to have “built the house of Israel,” Ruth 4:11.
Zech 6:13, a prophecy of our Lord as the “branch” who will “build the temple of the Lord”, as a King – Priest. Cf. Heb 6:20-7:1ff

“She has hewn out” CHATSAB, חָצַבIsa 51:1, “Look to the rock from which you were hewn and to the quarry from which you were dug.” cf. Hosea 6:5

“Seven Pillars” Cf Ex13:21-22; 26:32The Word of God beautifully fashioned into the “woman wisdom” (Proverbs) by our Lord.

This is not a religious feast, but one more on the lines with a wedding feast, as compared to the adulterous woman’s false worship preparation of Prov 7:14-18.


“She has mixed her wine” This mixing sometimes means to add water, the picture of our Lord on the Cross, when His blood was mixed with water at the piercing of His side, John 19:34.


“She has set her table” Always something planned or organized. Cf. Gen 22:9; Lev 1:7f, 12; 1 Kings 18:33 = Refs. to the completed work of Christ and the power of the Cross, the “Bride Price.”


The picture of flesh, wine and a table set reminds us of the communion table where we partake of the body and blood of our Lord, based on His strenuous activity accomplished upon the Cross..


… in the payment of the penalty of our sins. And by our partaking of the cup we are reconfirming our belief in Him; our acceptance of the marriage contract He has presented to us, His bride!
