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.
