Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life
This makes me think of my awesome wife, which I am blessed to have. I don’t think of her because she always gives me instructions. I think of her because she grounds me and makes my life better. She has made me better in so many ways. I once asked her why she married me. She said because I loved her first, then she fell in love with me. What powerful words. For many years humans have given a female characteristic to things they love. Look at the United States of America. In songs we refer to it as a female, because most who know better that we are lucky to be born here. So why wouldn’t the scholars of old including King Solomon refer to wisdom as a her? We should love wisdom. She will make your life better.
