Discussion for Proverbs 1:1

  • Rhonda on Proverbs 1:1
    Firstly, you cannot isolate a scripture if it is linked to a continuous reading or a message. Verse 29 is a part of the consequences of not taking the way of wisdom, that way of truth judgement and understanding. Verse 25 is the turning point, setting to zero Godly counsel and scoffing at the reproof of the right path. What you sow is what you reap. God loves us, but he is also our judge.

    Why did God not respect the offering of Cain?
  • Mishael on Cains Curse Genesis 4 5 - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Cain was firstborn but God rejected Cains offering. Maybe it was substandard?

    Abel was 2nd born and God was pleased with his offering and blessed him.

    Cain was indignant and disputed the event. God didn't change His mind.

    Cain slew Abel. He was cursed and marked for death. Later he married and had children.

    Eventually Lamech was born. By accident He slew Cain and lived long enough to survive the 70 times 7 times curse for killing Cain. He survived and later Noah would be born. Genesis 4:23

    Then Eve's 3rd born son, Seth, lived 912 years.
  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Hello Mishael, I'm not seeing where it says Lamech killed Cain. Genesis 4:23 says he killed a man, but it doesn't say who. It says it could be a young boy, if it was a young boy, then that eliminates Cain as a possibility, since Cain was older than Lamech. Otherwise, if it was a man and a boy- two people he killed- we still don't know who, unless it says somewhere else?
  • Mishael on Cains Death - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    I already posted the reply. Why else would what Lamech confessed to, be followed up with mention of Cains curse

    If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech, seventy and seven fold.

    Who knows IF Cain knew whoever killed him was going to suffer 70 times 7 years. That's hatred.

    Cains daughter gave birth to Lamech. Cain beat up his Grandson.

    Sounds like year 2020 huh?

    That question has been on that page a couple of days. I did my best.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Real sorry. My finger gets Fat at night.

    Verse 4:15-16 and 23-24
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Sorry, it's verse 15; 23-24. Center column says, for wounding and bruising me.

    There's a similar judgment in Ezekiel 9:4-6

    It's not described as a murder; it describes a fight.
