Translated headword: senseless and foolish
Vetting Status: high
"Senseless" [a)/frwn] and "foolish" [a)/nous] are different. They say that a man who is called wise is foolish, for not wanting to understand what he should do, but they call ignorant someone who is uninitiated in wisdom but nevertheless dwells in wickedness. David said: "together the senseless man and the ignorant man will perish."[1]
