A Christ Filled Life – Getting To Know Jesus
“Near the Cross”, “Love Lifted Me”, Bishop Leonard Scott.
“More Proverbs of Solomon”, XXXI, Proverbs 29:1) He, that being often reproved (corrected) hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. 2) When the righteous are in authority (or increased), the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. 3) Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance. Philippians 2:22. 4) The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts (bribes) overthroweth it. 5) A man that flattereth his neighbor spreadeth a net for his feet. 6) In the transgression (sin) of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice. 7) The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it. 8) Scornful men bring a city into a snare (or set a city on fire): but wise men turn away wrath. 9) If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest (peace). 10) The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul. 11) A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth (control) it in till afterwords. 12) If a ruler hearken (listens) to lies, all his servants are wicked. 13) The poor and the deceitful (oppressor) man meet together: the Lord lighteneth (gives sight to) both their eyes. 14) The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established forever. Psalm 72:2. 15) The rod and reproof (correction) give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. 16) When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall. Psalm 37:36.
Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v5, Flatterers put men off their guard. v9, If a wise man dispute with a conceited wrangler (one who argues), he will be treated with anger; and no good is done. v12, One who loves flatterers and hearkens (listens) to slanderers, causes his servants to become liars and false accusers. v13, The Lord gives to both the comforts of this life.
