Why is wisdom called she? From a technical perspective, the Hebrew word for wisdom is CHoCHMaH. For the most part, nouns with an “aH” ending, are feminine, and wisdom fits this category. Unlike English, every Hebrew noun has a gender. Unlike French or Spanish which also have genders,God teaches us something about reality by giving each noun a gender. For instance, one of the most important aspects of being female is the ability to bring additional people into the world.Thus, when a noun is feminine, it likely indicates that the thing or idea being described has the capacity to reproduce. One of the qualities of wisdom is that it begets greater wisdom. Once you have a true understanding of any part of life, it is easier to get a greater understanding of another part of life. So, in effect, wisdom reproduces and as such is a word with feminine qualities.In the same way the city needs more people who will reproduce in all wisdom in all areas of life.Developmental transformation is possible in the city only when people practically produce and reproduce good.We must look for those people.We must empower those people.We must see those people succeed at all costs.This will the city a place like heaven on Earth.
