The scene in this chapter is more practical and grounded than some of the previous chapters about wisdom. The focus is on a man’s union with a woman. However, this is analogous to the student’s/son’s union to Lady Wisdom. And so the two are situations are tied together. Faithfulness to one’s wife and faithfulness to Lady Wisdom go hand-in-hand; the women are reflections of each other and faithfulness to one is faithfulness to the other.
