"Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn out its seven pillars." (verse 1)
Chapter 8 verse 12 mentions what some people say is in reference to the seven pillars talked about here. The seven pillars have been known as 7 attributes of wisdom, not physical pillars from a house, they are the following:
3.Fear of the Lord
These first few verses are painting an image of wisdom and then comparing to the unwise, foolish who is talking to the people who, 'lack judgement'. Verse 10 says, "The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the holy one is understanding."
Fear of the Lord explained:
-Submitting to his discipline
-Worshipping him in awe
To fear the Lord is referred to in scripture as a positive quality. It acknowledges God's good intentions. It will bring us life.
"For through me, your days will be added to your life." (verse 11) I don't think he is necessarily talking about human days on earth, but eternity spent forever with God... which like yesterdays chapter is more precious than gold and silver.
