While Proverbs is mostly guy-talk and sometimes might seem a bit sexist, it really isn’t. The main theme of Proverbs – Wisdom – is personified as a wonderful godly woman (9:1-6).
Admittedly immoral women are a major father-to-son talking point (like in this chapter – :24 to the end) and there are some “pretty interesting” references to wives (like 21:9). Yet, overall, women are held in appropriate esteem – especially mothers and wives.
In fact, while father talks all the way through the book, Proverbs actually ends with a whole chapter of advice from the mother of King Lemuel (31:1). Once again, momma gets the last word!
