Proverbs 11:18-23 The profits of the wicked are illusory;
but those who sow righteousness gain a true reward.
19 Genuine righteousness leads to life,
but the pursuer of evil goes to his own death.
20 The crooked-hearted are an abomination to Adonai,
but those sincere in their ways are his delight.
21 Depend on it: the evil will not go unpunished;
but the offspring of the righteous will escape. 22 Like a gold ring in the snout of a pig
is a beautiful woman
Proverbs 10:27-32 The fear of Adonai adds length to life,
but the years of the wicked are cut short.
28 What the righteous hope for will end in joy;
what the wicked expect will come to nothing.
29 The way of Adonai is a stronghold to the upright
but ruin to those who do evil.
30 The righteous will never be moved,
but the wicked will not remain in the land.
31 The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom,
but the perverse tongue will be cut off.
32 The li
Proverbs 9:7-12 “He who corrects a scoffer only gets insulted; reproving a wicked man becomes his blemish. 8 If you reprove a scoffer, he will hate you; if you reprove a wise man, he will love you. 9 Give to a wise man, and he grows still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will learn still more. 10 The fear of Adonai is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of holy ones is understanding. 11 For with me, your days will be increased; years will be added to your life. 12 If y
Proverbs 8:32-36 “Therefore, children, listen to me: happy are those who keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction, and grow wise; do not refuse it. 34 How happy the person who listens to me, who watches daily at my gates and waits outside my doors. 35 For he who finds me finds life and obtains the favor of Adonai. 36 But he who misses me harms himself; all who hate me love death.” HAPPY!!! So many people in the world are trying to find happiness. All they have to do is listen to wis
Proverbs 8:20-31 I follow the course of righteousness along the paths of justice, 21 to endow with wealth those who love me and fill their treasuries. 22 “Adonai made me as the beginning of his way, the first of his ancient works. 23 I was appointed before the world, before the start, before the earth’s beginnings. 24 When I was brought forth, there were no ocean depths, no springs brimming with water. 25 I was brought forth before the hills, before the mountains had settled
Proverbs 6:20-23 My son, obey your father’s command, and don’t abandon your mother’s teaching. 21 Bind them always on your heart, tie them around your neck. 22 When you walk, they will lead you; when you lie down, they will watch over you; and when you wake up, they will talk with you. 23 For the mitzvah is a lamp, Torah is light, and reproofs that discipline are the way to life. These are some of my favorite verses in Proverbs. There is no way to break this down because it a
Proverbs 6:12-19 A scoundrel, a vicious man,
lives by crooked speech,
13 winking his eyes, shuffling his feet,
pointing with his fingers.
14 With deceit in his heart,
he is always plotting evil and sowing discord.
15 Therefore disaster suddenly overcomes him;
unexpectedly, he is broken beyond repair. 16 There are six things Adonai hates,
seven which he detests:
17 a haughty look, a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that plots wicked schemes,
Proverbs 3:25-26 Don’t be afraid of sudden terror or destruction
caused by the wicked, when it comes;
26 for you can rely on Adonai;
he will keep your foot from being caught in a trap. It might take us a while to get through Proverbs when we only get two verses at a time, but as I said in the beginning, when we read a whole chapter we end up missing pieces that really are important! Take these two verse: Don't be afraid! One of the ??? times in the Bible that we are told to n
Proverbs 3:19-20 Adonai by wisdom founded the earth, by understanding he established the heavens, 20 by his knowledge the deep [springs] burst open and the dew condenses from the sky. What a treasure to find these verses today. Adonai founded the earth by WISDOM. That means He THOUGHT THROUGH what He was doing when He created it! Most wise people give thought to their next step. If Adonai showed wisdom, that means He CARES and WANTED to found the earth! He used UNDERSTANDING
Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, don’t despise Adonai’s discipline or resent his reproof; 12 for Adonai corrects those he loves like a father who delights in his son. Discipline... We all know it needs to happen. Very few actually enjoy it. As I read the verses above what I recognized as I read it today, is we need to understand more that our Father DELIGHTS in us. If that is the core of what we understand, than discipline is not as challenging to accept! Do you REALLY KNOW that Adon
