Daily Wisdom 136: Proverbs 7:11-12

Proverbs 7:11–12 (NKJV) — 11 She was loud and rebellious, Her feet would not stay at home. 12 At times she was outside, at times in the open square, Lurking at every corner.

Two additional indicators of moral impurity. The immoral woman described here is loud and stubborn. These characteristics are exactly the opposite of those of the godly woman described in I Peter 3:4-5. Second, the immoral woman is aggressive in pursuit of evil. She does not wait for her victim to come to her; she actively seeks opportunities for immorality.

As we read through this section of Proverbs, we should keep in mind that the immoral woman figuratively represents folly, while the godly woman represents wisdom.
