The wise child (Prov 15:20-15:23)

“A wise child makes a glad father.

But foolish children despise their mothers.

Folly is a joy

To one who has no sense.

But a person of understanding

Walks straight ahead.

Without counsel,

Plans go wrong.

But with many advisers,

Plans succeed.

To make an apt answer

Is a joy to anyone.

How good it is

To have a word in season!”

A wise child makes their father happy. However, the foolish children despise their mothers. Foolishness can be a joy to those who have no sense. The understanding person walks straight ahead and never deviates. Plans work out better if you take counsel with many advisers. The right answer is a joy to anyone. It is very agreeable to have the right word at the right time.
