Psalm 1, palm, tree, tree of life

Proverbs about wise and foolish women

"The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands." Proverbs 14:1

"Wisdom has built her house,
She has hewn out her seven pillars;
She has slaughtered her meat,
She has mixed her wine,
She has also furnished her table..." Proverbs 9:1-2

"[A foolish woman says,]
'Stolen water is sweet,
And bread eaten in secret is pleasant.'
But he does not know that the dead are there,
That her guests are in the depths of hell." Proverbs 9:17-18

This reminds me of some comparisons I made on Bible people in the past:

Jehosheba / Athaliah and Noah / Lamech
