Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
– Proverbs 7:24
Verses 24-27 conclude the chapter with the applied warning of wisdom. The conclusion begins with the familiar call to listen with intelligence and take heed to the words spoken. Again, we note the contrast with the words of wisdom and the words of folly. The adulteress use words of flattery and cunning to persuade. The mouth of the father speaks words of wisdom whereby the words of folly will not prevail.
