Proverbs 1:32

[ <1 minutes to read ]

For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
– Proverbs 1:32

[T]urning away points to the active refusal of wisdom (Proverbs 1:23). It is as though wisdom is considered and found detestable and discarded. Refusing wisdom is suicidal (Proverbs 8:36). Prosperity speaks of abundance and security. Every perceived gain by folly, no matter how small, only confirms fools in their way. Their way leads to destruction.
