[b-hebrew] Prov 24

There are a couple of things in Prov 24 that are odd to me:
verse 7 has the word "corals" - but its translated "too high" or some such.
Now to me "corals" makes perfect sense because the line says "wisdom is like
coral for a fool"- how? simply put, attaining wisdom for a fool is like
obtaining coral for the poor.

the second difficulty is found in vv 10-12.  I just dont get it.  what is
being described here?
