Proverbs 9:14

For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city.
– Proverbs 9:14

Folly imitates wisdom and the unwary discern little difference. Everything about wisdom was high and noble, from her seven-pillared house to her maidens to her expertly prepared feast. Everything about folly is common and ill-prepared. There is nothing about her preparations for a feast, which fits with the character of fools and their empty talk (Proverbs 14:23). She sits and calls whereas wisdom stands (Proverbs 8:2).
