Summary: The Lady & the Tramp The Call of the Wild or The Call of the Wise Two Invitations

The Lady & the Tramp

The Call of the Wild or The Call of the Wise

Two Invitations

Proverbs 9:1-18 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:

2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.

3 She hath sent forth her maidens:

she crieth upon the highest places of the city,

4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.

8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.

9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy

is understanding.

11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied,

and the years of thy life shall be increased.

12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

13 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.

14 For she sitteth at the door of her house,

on a seat in the high places of the city,

15 To call passengers who go right on their ways:

16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither:

and as for him that wanteth understanding,

she saith to him,

17 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread

eaten in secret is pleasant.

18 But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

The Call of the Wild or The Call of the Wise


1. In his discourses on the value of seeking after wisdom, Solomon has varied his approach...

a. He makes his own appeal, as a father.

Proverbs 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

Proverbs 4:1 Hear, ye children, the instruction

of a father, and attend to know understanding.

b. He personifies wisdom as a lady who invites people to pay heed.

Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom crieth without;

she uttereth her voice in the streets:

Proverbs 8:1 Doth not wisdom cry?

and understanding put forth her voice?

2. His discourse presents a picture of two women, both extending invitations...
