Wisdom and honey (Prov 24:13-24:14)

“My child!

Eat honey!

It is good.

The drippings of the honeycomb

Are sweet to your taste.

Know that wisdom is such to your soul.

If you find it,

You will find a future.

Your hope will not be cut off.”

There is nothing wrong with eating honey because it is good and tastes sweet. Wisdom is like honey to your soul because it is good. If you find wisdom, you will have a hopeful future.

Where is wisdom? (Job 12:11-12:12)

“Does not the ear test words?

Does the palate taste food?

Is wisdom with the aged?

Is understanding in length of days?”

Where can we find wisdom? Our ears hear words. Our palate tastes food. Are the aged those who have gained real wisdom simply because they have lived so long and experienced so much? Is not God’s wisdom greater than this?
