ABC:Proverbs 9

From BibleStrength

Verse 10

RationalWiki lists the following as a contradiction with the headline "Does fearing God make you wise?" and makes the following comments (italicized):[1]

The Bible makes clear that there is a godly wisdom which brings life, and a wisdom of this world that brings death. (1 Corinthians 1:20; 1 Corinthians 2:5-7; 1 Corinthians 3:18-19) I am not sure what Bible version RationalWiki is quoting from, as I can't find any version which reads this way. Had they quoted from the KJV (as is done with most other alleged contradictions mentioned on their list), it would have been apparent from Ecclesiastes 7:18 that the wisdom referred to in Ecclesiastes 7:16 is being contrasted with the fear of God in verse 18.
