Proverbs 14&15

Proverbs 14&15

Proverb 14:1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
   My dictionary says that Buildeth means:  to build (literally and figuratively): - (begin to) build, obtain children, make, repair, set (up). And Plucketh it down means:   to pull down or in pieces, break, destroy: - beat down, break (down, through), destroy, overthrow, pluck down, pull down, ruin, throw down.
Which woman would we rather be? Wise or Foolish?

:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
   Just because we think a certain way is the best way, doesn't mean that it is.

15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
   When someone is angry at you, it doesn't help to get angry back. This is one of the hardest things to do, but we need to keep calm in that situation.

The next chapters are 2 Samuel 20-24.
