    It is a good passage of scripture. Good for everyday wisdom. I like especially v 10. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
  • Rod
    I also love Proverbs chapter 9! Recently I have discovered that it is a chapter with a hidden message. Do you see what it is?
  • Lilian
    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding amen

    I see and hear many talk about the "fear of the Lord" that fewr is actually reverence, or awe. Some say it is dread and real fear. I think they both miss the point. YHWY does not want us to dread or fear Him. In His love for us, He wants us to fear the consequences of the choices we make for sin. Those consequences take us towards eternal damnation, but more importantly, takes us away from Him.

    'Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.' this statement is very powerful,
    the joy in sinning that takes us to death. anything that is sin is a stolen stuff, lets all of us reflect on bad things we enjoyed doing and now it has landed us in the difficult situation we are in now. lets come to Jesus for He loves us all, it doesn't matter what we've been through. shalom
    yes i completely agree wit you but will also want to have a clear interpretation of it if you can please thank you

    ALICE NGBE, this particular book of the bible is full of proverbs, most of the things spoken are hidden, 'stolen waters are sweet and bread eaten in secret is pleasant' Example, gossip, lie, adultery, cheat, etc. are sins people enjoy doing and are done in secret, but the bible is advising us to flee because it can lead us to destruction, I believe I tried explaining further thank you

    The fear of God is best described as the note in the Scofield study Bible: A reverential trust and hatred of sin.
  • Steve
    On the subject of the fear of the Lord: easily understood is having the deepest respect for Him and all His ways. Our God is a consuming fire. He is a jealous God, not to be mocked. Don't be concerned of a person that can take your life, but be VERY concerned with Him that not only cantake your life, but can banish you to hell. He demands the deepest respect, which is the fear of the Lord.
  • A disciple
    On the subject of fearing God; I've heard many apologizing and trying to deny that our fear should be of dread and terror, like the word really means; but instead water down the meaning to some vague conviction of "hurting God's feelings." But anyone who really knows what its like to be in life danger, or ready to perish for his sins; knows the FEAR of falling into the hands of the living God.

    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. v10
  • Mr. Smith
    Both Wisdom vs 4 and Foolish vs 16 cry out to the same person to come in. Wisdom, our divine spiritual imagination and Foolishness, our own sense realm, beckon our attention. One leads to life and understanding and one to death and destruction. Choose this day whom ye shall serve. I set before thee life and death, blessing and cursing. The ongoing human struggle.

    It teaches a Women how to examine her ro live in the Obedience to God. We must acknowledge that only what we do doe God will be counted for.
  • Irene123
    V. 8 is referring to a 'wise' man who is walking in the 'light' of the Word of God; he has God's spirit in him and therefore has God's love for souls and will welcome any correction from a fellow Christian in that walk - so he will be right with God. He won't feel condemned if the correction is given gently in the spirit of God's love.

    I like Gina's comment on Pro. 9:12 - 11/30/'14 .....

    Proverbs 9:13-18 to me mean a choice before me : better if we walk the path of wisdom or bitter the path of folly. I called these paths brain tracks. The names that follows each track are name of spirits.
    1. Sonship/Daughtership
    Offence>Forgiveness >Mercy>Grace>Love
    2. Orphan aka Folly
    Offence>Unforgiveness>Resentment >Bitterness >Revenge >Slander or Murder or Stealing

    As I grow in Christ, it is truly a grand experience. Intellectual knowledge has no comparison when it comes to the wisdom that comes from above. I have learnt to separate the two.

    I have a problem forgiving, and i know it's not what God want from me.Help me!
  • Lilian
    When Jesus was teaching inside the church people who believe in him they are listening to his words. In our life believing Jesus and to have FAITH IN HIM IS ONLY BY HEARING THE WORD IF GOD. Without hearing the word if God its impossible to please him. THE FEAR IF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM; AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF HOLY IS UNDERSTANDING. AMEN

    Jackson; do you sell the word of God in your school, or do you give it freely?

    I concur,

    "He who has an ear let him hear what Spirit is saying to the Church of Christ's."
  • Dorothy
    Temptation is everywhere, and God is telling us how to use Wisdom in not being tempted by foolish people, things, and ways. Really doing the right thing (righteousness) by living by God's Word, so we can go home to be with the Lord, and we will hear Him say "well done my good and Faithfull servant." As I read the book of Proverbs, I am gaining new Wisdom, and renewing my Wisdom.
