Job 17:14; Pr 2:2-4; Pr 4:6-8; So 8:1; Mt 12:49,50; Lu 11:27,28

NET © Notes

sn The metaphor is meant to signify that the disciple will be closely related to and familiar with wisdom and understanding, as close as to a sibling. Wisdom will be personified in the next two chapters, and so referring to it as a sister in this chapter certainly prepares for that personification.
