    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 9:14

    For she sitteth at the door of her house - Her conduct here marks at once her folly, impudence, and poverty. See above on Proverbs 7:6 (note), etc., where the reader will find a similar character.

    Barnes' Notes on Proverbs 9:14

    Contrast with Proverbs 9:1, etc. The foolish woman has her house, but it is no stately palace with seven pillars, like the home of Wisdom. No train of maidens wait on her, and invite her guests, but she herself sits at the door, her position as prominent as that of Wisdom, counterfeiting her voice, making the same offer to the same class (compare Proverbs 9:16 with Proverbs 9:4).

    Wesley's Notes on Proverbs 9:14

    9:14 At the door - Watching for occasions of sin.
