Proverbs 28-31

We finish proverbs today. If you've been reading along, the next time someone says "the proverbial..." you'll be able to say "oh really, which proverb is that?" Which is answering a fool according to his folly (which is proverbs 26:5)

Proverbs 28

1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

Bold as a lion, not loud as one. Of course, the bold lion will hide when there is trouble (Proverbs 27:12).

3 A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.

A person who oppresses the poor should become rich eventually, if the person doesn't, then he's a mormon.

6 Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

It's better to be a good person who is poor, than to be a bad person who is rich.

13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

You can't throw yourself on the mercy of the court if you don't admit your guilt.

15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.



20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

Beware get rich quick schemes. Also, don't respond to any unsolicited email from africa.

22 He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

Do not resend forwarded emails.

24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.

Do not steal from your parents to get money for crack.

Proverbs 29

2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

You didn't see tea parties when Bush was ruler.

3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

If you are out cavorting with whores, you are probably spending lots of money. A person never spends much money when they stay home reading the Bible (KJV1611).

7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it.

The next time a homeless person asks you for change, find out their story, then determine if they are worthy of receiving your quarter. Do not just blow them off, get to know why they are a lazy homeless bum first.

9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.

This verse, Proverbs 29:9 is practically the theme of the Landover Baptist forums.

15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

Shame belongs to the mother, A child who is brought up correctly reflects on the father.

27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

Good people hate the bad, bad people hate the good.

Proverbs 30

1 The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,

These are not Solomon's proverbs, but rather from Agur. Think of these proverbs as though they are posed from the fools point of view. Agur might mean, "one who is brave in the pursuit of wisdom". Jakeh might mean "he who is free from sin". Ithiel might mean "the words of God" and ukal might mean transgression.

So these might be proverbs taken from the perspective of a person who is the fool.

2 Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man.

He sort of sets himself up to be a bad person.

3 I neither learned wisdom, nor have the knowledge of the holy.

Dearest kids, don't be Agur.

Time to play Pyramid, I'm your host, Dick Clark.

Verses 15-16. The grave, the barren womb, dry earth, and fire.Things that are never satisfied.

Verses 18-19. Eagles in the air, serpents on a rock, a ship in the sea, and a man with a woman. Things that are too wonderful for the author.

Verses 24-28. Ants, conies (rabbits), locusts, spiders.Small things that are wise.

Verses 29-31. A lion, a greyhound, a male goat, a king. Things that look really good when they leave.

Proverbs 31

1 The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.

These might also be proverbs of Solomon. You'll remember that there was no king Lemuel back when we were reading Kings and Chronicles. Like Proverbs 30 were read from the perspective of the fool, these might be given by Solomon in Lemuel's perspective.

3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

Be a good king, don't give power to women.

4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

Wine is a commoners drink.

6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

Whiskey will make someone who is dieing, die more peacefully. Wine can cause an alcoholobotomy, it can also work as mental floss.

7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

This may be the first reference to drinking to drown ones sorrows.

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

The first part of this chapter dealt with how to keep power, don't give it to women, and don't lose it by drinking. The second part deals with finding a good wife.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

She's not a bitch.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

She's a good seamstress.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

She has breakfast ready for when her man wakes up, and has his lunch ready for him.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

She doesn't need to go to the salvation army to get a coat AFTER winter arrives. She's prepared!

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

She takes care of the house, and doesn't watch soap operas while her husband is hard at work.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

A good wife is it's own reward. When you find her, keep her. You won't have to lie to your friends about how great she is, they will know that she's a good woman.

So what have we learned today?

1. Beware of get rich quick schemes.

2. A good wife is worth more than what you'd get on the black market for her organs.

3. Good people hate the bad, bad people hate the good.
