Considering Proverbs 9:2

2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table. If we think of the above scripture in terms of the faithful church—both as a collective and as the Christian individual—what might we consider? What should our table be furnished with? Jesus has the answer. John 6:47-62 47 Verily, verily,Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 9:2”

Considering Proverbs 9:1

Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars: In previous Proverbs studies, we considered the differences between the strange woman and the wise woman and compared these two women to the faithful and unfaithful Christian church.

Considering Proverbs 8:25-31

25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: 26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. 27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: 28 When heContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 8:25-31”

Considering Proverbs 8:24

24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

And the Spirit of God moved uponContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 8:24”

Considering Proverbs 8:22-23

22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

Considering Proverbs 8:18-21

18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. 19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. 20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: 21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and IContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 8:18-21”

Considering Proverbs 8:17

17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

The idea I refer to isContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 8:17”

Considering Proverbs 8:14-16

14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. 15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. 16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.

Considering Proverbs 8:13

13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

I think this problemContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 8:13”
