Bible commentary

Discussion for Proverbs 22

  • Hilary Williamson
    Proverbs happens to be my favorite book in the bible because it is filled with wisdom. So many teachings on how to live, what to do and what what not to do. It not only speaks to the saved, but to the unsaved also. The beauty about Proverbs is that you see that what he is says is true because there are scriptures in there that everyone can relate to and ones that we see happen to other people.

    1 Do what is right to keep our dignity
    2 Rich and poor God made them
    3 Humble ourselves, fear God and He will establish you
    4 We have hope in Jesus and in Him We'll hide.
    5 Children should be taught to fear God from an early age and they will not depart from it.
    6 Don,t borrow you will be a slave to the lender.
