“The Love Of Christ Jesus”/Proverbs of Solomon XII

A Christ Filled Life – Getting To Know Jesus

“How I Got Over”, Vickie Winans.  Chorus:  How I got over, my soul looks back and wonders, how I got over.     

“Proverbs of Solomon”, XII, Proverbs 16:19) Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.  20) He that handleth a matter (or He that understandeth a matter) wisely shall find good:  and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.  21) The wise in heart shall be called prudent:  and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.  22) Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it:  but the instruction of fools is folly.  23) The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.  24) Pleasant words are as an homeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.  25) There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.  26) He that laboureth laboureth for himself, for his mouth craveth it of him.  27) An ungodly man (A man of Belial, a wicked, worthless man) diggeth up evil:  and in his lips there is as a burning fire.  28) A froward (disobedient) man soweth (sendeth forth) strife:  and a whisperer separateth chief friends.  29) A violent man enticeth his neighbor, and leadeth him into the way that is not good.  30) He shutteth his eyes to devise froward (disobedient) things:  moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.  31) The hoary (very old) head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.  32) He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.  33) The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the Lord. 

Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v26, We must labour for the meat which endureth to everlasting life, or we must perish.  v28, The whisperer separates friends:  what a hateful and common character!.  v33, Blessed are those that give themselves up to the will of God:  for He knows what is good for them.</
