Proverbs 8 Summary

The wise father, who's been teaching his son in these opening chapters of Proverbs, knows there are two woman vying for his son's attention. Yesterday, in chapter 7, we met the first woman, a seductive woman, dressed like a prostitute with crafty intent (7:10).

In chapter 8 we hear from Lady Wisdom, calling upon people to cling to her counsel and sound wisdom... insight... and strength (v14). While the world rushes after silver and gold, they miss that which is more valuable: wisdom's instruction (v10).
