Bible Commentary for Proverbs 3:2

Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 3:2


3:1 My law - The law of God, which might be called his law, as the gospel is called Paul's gospel, #2Tim 2:8|, because delivered by him.

3:3 Mercy - Mercy denotes all benignity, charity, and readiness to do good to others: truth or faithfulness respects all those duties which we owe to God or man, which we have special obligation from the rules of justice. Bind them - Like a chain, wherewith persons adorn their necks. Table - In thy mind and heart, in which all God's commands are to be received and engraven.

3:4 Understanding - Whereby to know thy duty, and to discern between good and evil. Of God - Grace or favour with God, and that understanding which is good in God's sight.


Discussion for Proverbs 3:2

  • Lakisha on Proverbs 3:2
    I BELIEVE, IF YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE RIGHT AND OBEY GOD, EVIL WILL NOT TOUCH YOU.
  • LILLIAN on Proverbs 3:2
    When we live as God said we will have peace and joy in our life live by the word of God
  • Toni on Proverbs 3:2
    There are many people who believe, when someone dies, it's simply "their time to go.." But those people should read this verse. Keeping God's law and His commandments will add time to our lives, and will allow us to live out the 70 years God promised us. Those who are not living by God's words and are living in sin, are getting their lives cut short. You want a long, peaceful life? Serve Jesus and keep His word and laws all the days of our lives.
