    Bible NKJV ^ | 900 B.C. | Solomon
    I found this commentary on Proverb 18:22, written by Z. Hunter of Dear Queens.. I like it, because it comes from a woman's point of view that I cannot begin to consider. SO of offer to you this commentary on; "He Who Finds A Good Wife" You may have heard of that popular scripture before. "He who finds a wife finds a good thing." It has two implications: 1. that the man is to do the finding (and consequently, the pursuing); and 2. that the wife is the good thing.I won't use this space to draft a sermon on...

    Proverb 28 (NKJV) The Righteous Are Bold as a Lion 01 The wicked flee when no one pursues, 00But the righteous are bold as a lion. 02 Because of the transgression of a land, many are its princes; 00But by a man of understanding and knowledge 00Right will be prolonged. 03 A poor man who oppresses the poor 00Is like a driving rain which leaves no food. 04 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, 00But such as keep the law contend with them. 05 Evil men do not understand justice, 00But those who seek the LORD understand...

    Proverb 27 (NKJV) My Son, Be Wise 01 Do not boast about tomorrow, 00 For you do not know what a day may bring forth. 02 Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; 00 A stranger, and not your own lips. 03 A stone is heavy and sand is weighty, 00 But a fool's wrath is heavier than both of them. 04 Wrath is cruel and anger a torrent, 00 But who is able to stand before jealousy? 05 Open rebuke is better 00 Than love carefully concealed. 06 Faithful are the wounds of a friend,...

    Proverb 26 (NKJV) Honor Is Not Fitting for a Fool 01 As snow in summer and rain in harvest, 00 So honor is not fitting for a fool. 02 Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, 00 So a curse without cause shall not alight. 03 A whip for the horse, 00 A bridle for the donkey, 00 And a rod for the fool's back. 04 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, 00 Lest you also be like him. 05 Answer a fool according to his folly, 00 Lest he be wise in his own...

    Proverb 25 (NKJV) Rule Your Spirit 01 These also are proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of 00 Judah copied: 02 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, 00 But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. 03 As the heavens for height and the earth for depth, 00 So the heart of kings is unsearchable. 04 Take away the dross from silver, 00 And it will go to the silversmith for jewelry. 05 Take away the wicked from before the king, 00 And his throne will be established in...

    Proverb 24 (NKJV)Do Not Envy Evil Men 01 Do not be envious of evil men, 00 Nor desire to be with them; 02 For their heart devises violence, 00 And their lips talk of troublemaking. 03 Through wisdom a house is built, 00 And by understanding it is established; 04 By knowledge the rooms are filled 00 With all precious and pleasant riches. 05 A wise man is strong, 00 Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength; 06 For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, 00 And in a multitude of counselors there is safety. 07...

    Proverb 23 (NKJV) Listen to Your Father 01 When you sit down to eat with a ruler, 00 Consider carefully what is before you; 02 And put a knife to your throat 00 If you are a man given to appetite. 03 Do not desire his delicacies, 00 For they are deceptive food. 04 Do not overwork to be rich; 00 Because of your own understanding, cease! 05 Will you set your eyes on that which is not? 00 For riches certainly make themselves wings; 00 They fly away like an eagle toward heaven. 06 Do not eat the...

    Proverb 22 (NKJV) The Value of a Good Name 01 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, 00 Loving favor rather than silver and gold. 02 The rich and the poor have this in common, 00 The LORD is the maker of them all. 03 A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, 00 But the simple pass on and are punished. 04 By humility and the fear of the LORD 00 Are riches and honor and life. 05 Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; 00 He who guards his soul...

    Proverb 20 (NKJV) Wine Is a Mocker 01 Wine is a mocker, 00 Strong drink is a brawler, 00 And whoever is led astray by it is not wise. 02 The wrath of a king is like the roaring of a lion; 00 Whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own life. 03 It is honorable for a man to stop striving, 00 Since any fool can start a quarrel. 04 The lazy man will not plow because of winter; 00 He will beg during harvest and have nothing. 05 Counsel in the heart of man is like...

    Proverb 18 (NKJV) The Name of the LORD Is a Strong Tower 01 A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; 00 He rages against all wise judgment. 02 A fool has no delight in understanding, 00 But in expressing his own heart. 03 When the wicked comes, contempt comes also; 00 And with dishonor comes reproach. 04 The words of a man's mouth are deep waters; 00 The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook. 05 It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, 00 Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment. 06 A fool's...

    What the Book of Proverbs Has to Say About the Current Age Msgr. Charles Pope • January 13, 2016 • In the Divine Office, we are currently reading from the Wisdom Tradition. Thus our daily fare consists of passages from Sirach, Wisdom, Proverbs, etc. Praise the Lord. They have a lot to say about the times in which we live.I’d like to review a few of the sayings in the Book of Proverbs. But before doing so, I’d like to explain the use of the word fool in the Wisdom Tradition (as contrasted with the wise one). Without a...

    Wisdom for Your Walk (Proverbs 9:1-10; Ephesians 5:6-21; John 6:51-69)If I had to sum up a theme running through our lessons for today, and one that will be helpful for you, it is that here you will find Wisdom for Your Walk. You see, the Old Testament lesson from Proverbs is the call of wisdom to walk in the way of insight. The Epistle reading from Ephesians calls us to walk as children of the light and to look carefully how we walk, not as unwise but as wise. And in the Holy Gospel for today, from John 6, we...
