Proverbs 7:4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Say to Wisdom, “You are my sister!”[a]
    Call Understanding, “Friend!”

Footnotes:

  1. 7:4 You are my sister: “sister” and “brother” are examples of love language in the ancient Near East, occurring in Egyptian love poetry and Mesopotamian marriage songs. In Sg 4:9, 10, 12; 5:1, the man calls the woman, “my sister, my bride.” Intimate friendship with Woman Wisdom saves one from false and dangerous relationships.
