    Biblical Wisdom from the Book of Proverbs

    Biblical Wisdom from the Book of Proverbs

    Quote Originally Posted by Proverbs 1:1-4 KJV
    1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
    2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
    3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
    4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
    5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
    6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
    This book of God's wisdom and instructions on living life was written by King Solomon. God gave Solomon wisdom and he excelled in it.

    Quote Originally Posted by 1 Kings 4:29-33 KJV
    29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.
    30 And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt.
    31 For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about.
    32 And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five.
    33 And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes.
    34 And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom.
    So by reading the Book of Proverbs we find the God inspired words of an exceptionally wise man. These words can help anyone live a Godly life, a life which will lead eternal life.

    God not only gave me permission he commanded me to do it.

    I will do an AC and quote my own shout in a thread so its wisdom is not lost. Anyone with an iPod has more songs then Solomon's 1005 these days so I think the bible is out of date.

    Don't bother preaching it to velvet worms. They are all atheists.

    No the serpent did the preaching and got a convert too. Unfortunately the serpent was preaching evil not good.
    I did not know Serena had threatened to eat a linesgirl.

    AC if you knew what you were talking about then you would not a implied Serena threatened to eat a linesgirl. The serpent did not shove the fruit down Eve's neck, so what happened in the garden is very different to what Serena threatened to do with the ball and the linesgirl.

    Good stuff, Scott. I am fond of reading the Book of Proverbs. Much wisdoem therein.

    The quote is "his songs were a thousand and five", not "his songs were bloody good ones", so I still think we were meant to marvel at the number (in the same way you would be taken aback if someone knew 3000 proverbs and dragged them into the conversation at any excuse), hence Steve Jobs rendered this part of the bible out of date.

    Also it is unlikely that the instruments, acoustics and recording equipment of King Solomon's day helped the quality either.

    too much feedback in those days I heard.
