(Proverbs 7:7 KJV) And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
The young man in question is just one in the midst of many. Twice there is reference to the foolishness of youth but what I kept missing was that the entire crowd were “simple” (naive NASB) (6612a). The boy was just a fish in the school. This is a reminder that in the world we are surrounded by people who are out of touch with reality. Some are ignorant by choice. Some are out of it because they can’t help it. Most are lacking in wisdom and significant knowledge.
Like the writer, we are observers. There often isn’t much we can do beyond watching. When we can, we should.
So? Relax. You are odd. You are unusual. You are part of the redeemed and the world does not like having that around.
