“The Love Of Christ Jesus”/Proverbs of Solomon, XIX

A Christ Filled Life – Getting To Know Jesus

“More Than Enough”, Vickie Winan.  Chorus:  More than enough, more than enough, more than enough, for me.

“Proverbs of Solomon”, XIX, Proverbs 20:16) Take his garment that is surety (guarantee) for a stranger:  and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.  17) Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.  18) Every purpose is established by counsel:  and with good advice make war.  19) He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets:  therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.  20) Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.  21) An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed.  Habakkuk 2:6.  22) Say not thou, I will recompense (repay) evil; but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee.  23) Divers weights are an abomination unto the Lord; and a false balance is not good.  24) Man’s goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way?  Jeremiah 10:23.  25) It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is Holy, and after vows to make enquiry.  26) A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.  27) The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.  28) Mercy and truth preserve the king:  and his throne is upholden by mercy.  29) The glory of young men is their strength:  and the beauty of old men is the gray head.  30) The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil:  so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.

Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v16, Those ruin themselves who entangle themselves is rash suretiship (guarantees).  Also those who are in league with abandoned women.  v22, Wait on the Lord, attend His pleasure, and He will protect thee.  30) Severe rebukes sometimes do a great deal of good.

Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v25, Several proverbs warn against making rash promises about Holy things and then withdrawing the promises later (Ecclesiastes 5:1-7).  It is better never to vow than to vow and then change one’s mind. 

More to come and God Bless You.
