Pondering Proverbs 9:1 – Wisdom

Pondering Proverbs 9:1
“Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn her seven pillars.”

My take: Here we see wisdom is made of 7 parts or pillars. It is built, like anything substantial it takes planning and hard work.

The number 7 is used throughout Scripture quite intentionally. It most often represent ‘completion’ or ‘perfection’.

Key words: Wisdom, built, 7


  1. the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.

hewn [hyoon or, often, yoon]

  1. felled and roughly shaped by hewing :
    hewn logs.

My prayer: Lord, please give me the wisdom I need to thrive and help me to continue to expand my capacity each day.
