  • Paulie H on Proverbs 3:5
    This is simply, whatever God has said here, believe it over your own knowledge, because God is right, even if you have no understanding of what he is saying to us, still know its right before your own beliefs.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Proverbs 3:5
    Amen Paulie.

    Proverbs 3:5. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
  • Paulie H on Proverbs 3:2
    This means it will literally add years onto your life, never wondered how Adam and his offspring lived so long? Well it tells you here, its simply that what this verse says, follow our Gods ways and it will lengthen your life, ofcourse how strictly you follow it will be the reward outcome.

    This very important command is found in so many verses in the New Testament as it puts into action the Love that God has shown to us in Christ. If that Love was so powerful & engaging to us, the change effected in us, must also become practical to others. The question then is, 'How much do we love ourselves?' And it doesn't speak of us being vain, admiring ourselves in the mirror & entertaining useless thoughts of grandeur & of great worth to others. Rather, it reminds us that what we go through every day, is to ensure our survival on Earth & trying to foster happiness in our lives to overcome heartache & despair.

    Do we feed & clothe ourselves? Do we engage in exercises of the body & mind to keep us healthy? Do we put some money away for our future & for our children? Do we have roofs over our head & appliances to help us in the home? And many other things that you might think of that apply to your well-being. In like manner, the love & care we give to ourselves & loved ones, must also produce from that same heart, both a sympathy & an empathy for those who may not be as fortunate as us, whether those immediately around us or in our cities (our neighbour) or in other countries, where hunger, disease, poor sanitary conditions, etc. are rife. Many would just say 'Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?' (James 2:16), hoping that someone else will see to their needs. But the Love of Christ constrains us: that if see someone in need (especially a real need from no fault of their own), then it should not only be our hearts, tears & prayers that go out for them, but some real practical help that will make their lives a little better.

    Some engage in full-time service to meet others' needs - I can't think of a better profession than this, as is to share the Gospel of Christ so that their empty, sinful hearts may also be healed & restored. This is true love shown to others.

    Proverbs 3: It scares me to think now where I would be without Christ/God in my daily life! I have put my trust in HIM and he continues to bless me with opportunities to bless others on my journey through this life. You can NEVER go wrong trusting GOD! HE will discipline you, grow you, shield you. JoAnn
  • Sheila Beaston on Proverbs 3
    The Lord woke me with a question in my heart, and a Bible verse, and when I read the verse in the Bible, God highlighted also the next verse below it, for there was my answer. God is truly good ... and He hears the cries of His children and He answers them and makes them to rest, and be at peace, and He comforts them. Thank you Jesus.
  • Samoy on Proverbs 3
    Could someone please discuss this chapter
  • Spike4187 - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    Samoy....God bless you! I am with the other dude who replied. All I can add is go to the Lord, require of him what you shall do in all your matters and he will direct your path. Sometimes when I pray to the Lord it may be a day or two or week later that I wake up in the morning and I know exactly what to do. If you have trouble doing something for example loving others, etc. Talk to the Lord about it, let him know your struggles, he already knows but Cast your cares upon him because he cares for you and patiently wait. He will direct your paths brother!!!!!! Our God is an awesome God!! Stay strong Samoy!!!!

    Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to GOD! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor GOD with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don't, dear friend, resent GOD's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction. It's the child he loves that GOD corrects; a father's delight is behind all this.
  • P.john on Proverbs 3:6
    its good to learn
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    In Greek, the word for 'ought' is 'tis', which can mean 'anyone, someone, or something'. Given the context of Mark 11:25, it appears that Jesus is referring to 'some matter, grievance or sin' committed against someone - to forgive first then start praying for God's forgiveness is what's needed. I assume the sinful heart, including hypocrisy, are prohibitive for God to act.

    You posted this 16 hours ago. So I guess 16 hours for your ? What is your ?
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    Hi Lester, all of us on this Site are like you: asking questions, entering into discussion, learning, etc. So, answering a question will depend on who sees your question & if they are able to answer it. So, it shouldn't take too long (I think I answered yours fairly quickly yesterday), but sometimes people don't get an answer for a longer time or not at all. There are some of us 'regulars' here that try to help when we can & sometimes others offer comments also so you can get answers that you can consider & decide. Blessings.
  • Lester - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    thank you

    I just wanted to know what to expect
  • Brandi A Reese on Proverbs 3:8
    Time is an amending factor in all that got graces us with. Patience is a practice virtue of discipline and structural resgin. Education with growth development gives opportunity to many statues of governed office to expand with greater opportunity to offer offenders positive release options.

    ICorinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.

    Why is wisdom a she?
  • Why is wisdom referred as a woman - in Reply on Proverbs 3:15
    1:20-21; 2:2-4; 3:14-18; 4:7-8; 8:1-36 and 9:1-12. Each time wisdom speaks. The first time wisdom speaks is in Proverbs 1:20-21.

    Wisdom shouts in the street,

    She lifts her voice in the square;

    At the head of the noisy streets she cries out;

    At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings: Proverbs 1:20-21 (NASB)

    The Hebrew word for wisdom is hakmot and this noun is a feminine plural. A literal reading would seem to be "Wisdom shouts in the street," except that the second line is in the singular - "she lifts her voice." F. C. Cook writes,

    In the Hebrew the noun is a feminine plural . . . as though this Wisdom were the queen of all wisdoms, uniting in herself all their excellences.[1]

    That is, since Proverbs 2:6 says that God gives wisdom, the wisdom in Proverbs is the queen of all wisdoms. There is no greater wisdom.

    For the LORD gives wisdom;

    From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

    He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

    He is a shield to those who walk uprightly . . . Proverbs 2:6-7 (NKJV)

    Why Is Wisdom A Woman?

    Why did Proverbs personify wisdom as a woman? The answer is we do not know because Scripture never tells us. However, many have speculated why wisdom is personified as a woman by suggesting different ideas, but we are never told. The explanations are merely speculation. It is wrong to state that Proverbs is written from a father to his son and then suggest that wisdom is personified as feminine in order to make wisdom appear attractive to the son when Proverbs 5:15-20 warns men to avoid prostitutes. Such a conclusion is contrary to the teaching of Scripture.

    Others suggest that wisdom is feminine because the Hebrew word is assigned the feminine gender. But this conclusion is wrong since the grammatical structure clearly refers to a female such as in Proverbs 3:13-15 and 9:1.

    Google this question. Mishael
  • Michael Joseph Merritt - in Reply on Proverbs 3:15
    I do not have a complete answer on your question of Why is wisdom a she. However, here are some things I learned, that are facts. In the judgment upon Adam and Eve, in Genesis chapter three, because Adam was the husband, he makes the final decision with the input of his wife. Adam chose against Jesus, and chose sin and death. Adam could of stopped the fall of man by saying no to Eve. It was the man's failure. 2. The son of Jehovah, Jesus, was born of The Holy Ghost in an immaculate conception and the seed of a Woman, Mary. The man, and his seed was not selected, but the seed of a woman. 3. In Jesus' resurrection he appears first to the women, and not to the Apostles. I learned that the faith of the women was greater than the Apostles, and the Apostles struggled to believe Jesus' prophecy about himself, and failed to believe the women. The women were of a stronger faith, and believed Jesus' teachings more than the Apostles. 4. In the beginning, the male and female were made in the image of God Genesis 1:27. Thus, the female is equal to the male, in her soul. 5. A woman's special role of bearing children and being a Mother provides her insight into her Creator Jesus, that the men shall never have. The Song of the Woman's soul sings her love song to her baby in the womb for the entire gestation, and creates a love bond between mother and child, that the father does not have.

    Thank you Michael
  • Michael J Vesosky on Proverbs 3:8
    Psalms 119:9 " Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word."

    Spending time in God's word will cleanse you spiritually as well as physically.

    I say spiritually first because I know christians with physical ailments that were given these as a cross to bear. Yet many find that God's grace is sufficient for them.
  • why is it as many have questioned in Proverb like the passage in Proverbs 3:17 the writer refers to wisdom as She or Her Please explain.
  • A bible believer - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    Feminine nouns. just as you call a car her and the sen a female. Wisdom is a her.
  • Urbansumo on Proverbs 3
    Matthew 24:35 states: "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall no pass away."

    Matthew 24:36 states: "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." This confirms that Only God - taken literally from this verse, only Jesus' Father knows the end times.

    The only confusing aspect to this is that in my KJV this writing is in red which indicates it is Jesus' words, Jesus says "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.", which on the face of it, suggests not even He [Jesus] knows the hour or the day, but we know he does know, because of the Holy Trinity, meaning that the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are one. Meaning Jesus is also the Father, and is therefore God in human form.

    Peace and love be with you, Amen
