Discussion for Proverbs 8:30

  • Kelley - I don 't believe this is about Jesus or Solomon it is 'Wisdom ' personified who is speaking
  • This Shows how happy Jesus was with his Father "Jehovah" He was his Master worker Please look at Col.1:15-20 And I love the way Proverbs shows that he was rejocing before him all the time!! Know some people think Proverbs 8:22-30 is speaking of Solomon? No this Jesus! =)
