The Foolish Woman

"A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing." Proverbs 9:13

The Webster's 1828 Dictionary lists the definition of "clamorous" as - "Speaking and repeating loud words; full of clamor; calling or demanding loudly or urgently; vociferous; noisy; bawling; loud; turbulent." Another word for it may be boisterous (loud, noisy, violent).

This woman spoken of in Proverbs 9 sits at the door of her house in the city calling to people passing by, being loud mouthed and obnoxious, saying things she ought not be saying. She's making a spectacle of herself by her behavior.

What a poor testimony to be called a "foolish woman". LORD let me not be a Foolish Woman!
