  • Proverbs Chapter Four
    4 Hear, O sons, the instruction of a father,
    And give attention that you may [a]gain understanding,
    2 For I give you [b]sound teaching;
    Do not abandon my [c]instruction.
    3 When I was a son to my father,
    Tender and the only son in the sight of my mother,
    4 Then he taught me and said to me,
    “Let your heart hold fast my words;
    Keep my commandments and live;
    5 Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding!
    Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
    6 “Do not forsake her, and she will guard you;
    Love her, and she will watch over you.
    7 “The [d]beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom;
    And with all your acquiring, get understanding.
    8 “Prize her, and she will exalt you;
    She will honor you if you embrace her.
    9 “She will place on your head a garland of grace;
    She will present you with a crown of beauty.”
    10 Hear, my son, and accept my sayings
    And the years of your life will be many.
    11 I have directed you in the way of wisdom;
    I have led you in upright paths.
    12 When you walk, your steps will not be impeded;
    And if you run, you will not stumble.
    13 Take hold of instruction; do not let go.
    Guard her, for she is your life.
    14 Do not enter the path of the wicked
    And do not proceed in the way of evil men.
    15 Avoid it, do not pass by it;
    Turn away from it and pass on.
    16 For they cannot sleep unless they do evil;
    And [e]they are robbed of sleep unless they make someone stumble.
    17 For they eat the bread of wickedness
    And drink the wine of violence.
    18 But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
    That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.
    19 The way of the wicked is like darkness;
    They do not know over what they [f]stumble.
    20 My son, give attention to my words;
    Incline your ear to my sayings.
    21 Do not let them depart from your sight;
    Keep them in the midst of your heart.
    22 For they are life to those who find them
    And health to all [g]their body.
    23 Watch over your heart with all diligence,
    For from it flow the springs of life.
    24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth
    And put devious [h]speech far from you.
    25 Let your eyes look directly ahead
    And let your [i]gaze be fixed straight in front of you.
    26 Watch the path of your feet
    And all your ways will be established.
    27 Do not turn to the right nor to the left;
    Turn your foot from evil.
    1) Copy and paste chapter three into a note or word document
    2) Highlight every instruction given
    3) Underline all of the things that wisdom gives/does/is
    4) Circle the qualities mentioned of wickedness/evil
    5) Perhaps you’re reading this and thinking that you didn’t have a father impart that kind of wisdom to you. Today is a good day to allow The Heavenly Father to do just that as you dig into His Word.

    PROVERBS CHAPTER 2
    2 My son, if you will receive my words
    And treasure my commandments within you,
    2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom,
    Incline your heart to understanding;
    3 For if you cry for discernment,
    [a]Lift your voice for understanding;
    4 If you seek her as silver
    And search for her as for hidden treasures;
    5 Then you will discern the fear of the LORD
    And discover the knowledge of God.
    6 For the LORD gives wisdom;
    From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
    7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
    He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
    8 Guarding the paths of justice,
    And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
    9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice
    And equity and every good course.
    10 For wisdom will enter your heart
    And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;
    11 Discretion will guard you,
    Understanding will watch over you,
    12 To deliver you from the way of evil,
    From the man who speaks perverse things;
    13 From those who leave the paths of uprightness
    To walk in the ways of darkness;
    14 Who delight in doing evil
    And rejoice in the perversity of evil;
    15 Whose paths are crooked,
    And who are devious in their ways;
    16 To deliver you from the strange woman,
    From the [b]adulteress who flatters with her words;
    17 That leaves the companion of her youth
    And forgets the covenant of her God;
    18 For her house [c]sinks down to death
    And her tracks lead to the [d]dead;
    19 None who go to her return again,
    Nor do they reach the paths of life.
    20 So you will walk in the way of good men
    And keep to the paths of the righteous.
    21 For the upright will [e]live in the land
    And the blameless will remain in it;
    22 But the wicked will be cut off from the land
    And the treacherous will be uprooted from it.
    1) Copy and paste chapter two into a note or word document
    2) Verses 1-4 say how we will discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God, what is our responsibility in that? Underline those verses

    Proverbs Chapter Three
    3 My son, do not forget my [a]teaching,
    But let your heart keep my commandments;
    2 For length of days and years of life
    And peace they will add to you.
    3 Do not let kindness and truth leave you;
    Bind them around your neck,
    Write them on the tablet of your heart.
    4 So you will find favor and good [b]repute
    In the sight of God and man.
    5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
    And do not lean on your own understanding.
    6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He will make your paths straight.
    7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    Fear the LORD and turn away from evil.
    8 It will be healing to your [c]body
    And refreshment to your bones.
    9 Honor the LORD from your wealth
    And from the first of all your produce;
    10 So your barns will be filled with plenty
    And your vats will overflow with new wine.
    11 My son, do not reject the [d]discipline of the LORD
    Or loathe His reproof,
    12 For whom the LORD loves He reproves,
    Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.
    13 How blessed is the man who finds wisdom
    And the man who gains understanding.
    14 For her profit is better than the profit of silver
    And her gain better than fine gold.
    15 She is more precious than [e]jewels;
    And nothing you desire compares with her.
    16 [f]Long life is in her right hand;
    In her left hand are riches and honor.
    17 Her ways are pleasant ways
    And all her paths are peace.
    18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
    And happy are all who hold her fast.
    19 The LORD by wisdom founded the earth,
    By understanding He established the heavens.
    20 By His knowledge the deeps were broken up
    And the skies drip with dew.
    21 My son, let them not [g]vanish from your sight;
    Keep sound wisdom and discretion,
    22 So they will be life to your soul
    And adornment to your neck.
    23 Then you will walk in your way securely
    And your foot will not stumble.
    24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
    When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
    25 Do not be afraid of sudden fear
    Nor of the [h]onslaught of the wicked when it comes;
    26 For the LORD will be [i]your confidence
    And will keep your foot from being caught.
    27 Do not withhold good from [j]those to whom it is due,
    When it is in your power to do it.
    28 Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come back,
    And tomorrow I will give it,”
    When you have it with you.
    29 Do not devise harm against your neighbor,
    While he lives securely beside you.
    30 Do not contend with a man without cause,
    If he has done you no harm.
    31 Do not envy a man of violence
    And do not choose any of his ways.
    32 For the devious are an abomination to the LORD;
    But [k]He is intimate with the upright.
    33 The curse of the LORD is on the house of the wicked,
    But He blesses the dwelling of the righteous.
    34 Though He scoffs at the scoffers,
    Yet He gives grace to the afflicted.
    35 The wise will inherit honor,
    But fools [l]display dishonor.

    2) Underline every command found in the chapter
    3) Highlight every blessing of obedience
    6) In your role as a woman how might you be trusting in your own way instead of in the Lord. Verses 5 and 6. Are you needing a path made straight?
  • Sister Annette, I must apologize because I have yet to begin. I will try to get started when I get back Sunday evening. I have not forgotten.
  • We'll dig into one chapter of Proverbs at a time. I like to copy and paste studies into a Word document and hilight, underline and such so I'd encourage you all to do the same, though it's certainly not necessarily to reap benefits from our study. I do hope that there will be comments shared, questions asked and testimonies to be had while we go through this book full of great wisdom and instruction.

    PROVERBS CHAPTER ONE STUDY (I use the NASB version just so you know) QUESTIONS ARE AT THE BOTTOM
    1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
    2 To know wisdom and instruction,
    To discern the sayings of understanding,
    3 To receive instruction in wise behavior,
    Righteousness, justice and equity;
    4 To give prudence to the [a]naive,
    To the youth knowledge and discretion,
    5 A wise man will hear and increase in learning,
    And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,
    6 To understand a proverb and a figure,
    The words of the wise and their riddles.
    7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge;
    Fools despise wisdom and instruction.
    The Enticement of Sinners
    8 Hear, my son, your father’s instruction
    And do not forsake your mother’s teaching; (mother’s teach their children)
    9 Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head
    And [b]ornaments about your neck.
    10 My son, if sinners entice you,
    Do not consent.
    11 If they say, “Come with us,
    Let us lie in wait for blood,
    Let us ambush the innocent without cause;
    12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol,
    Even whole, as those who go down to the pit;
    13 We will find all kinds of precious wealth,
    We will fill our houses with spoil;
    14 Throw in your lot [c]with us,
    We shall all have one purse,”
    15 My son, do not walk in the way with them.
    Keep your feet from their path,
    16 For their feet run to evil
    And they hasten to shed blood.
    17 Indeed, it is [d]useless to spread the baited net
    In the sight of any [e]bird;
    18 But they lie in wait for their own blood;
    They ambush their own lives.
    19 So are the ways of everyone who gains by violence;
    It takes away the life of its possessors.
    Wisdom Warns
    20 Wisdom shouts in the street,
    She [f]lifts her voice in the square;
    21 At the head of the noisy streets she cries out;
    At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings:
    22 “How long, O [g]naive ones, will you love [h]being simple-minded?
    And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing
    And fools hate knowledge?
    23 “Turn to my reproof,
    Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you;
    I will make my words known to you.
    24 “Because I called and you refused,
    I stretched out my hand and no one paid attention;
    25 And you neglected all my counsel
    And did not want my reproof;
    26 I will also laugh at your calamity;
    I will mock when your dread comes,
    27 When your dread comes like a storm
    And your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
    When distress and anguish come upon you.
    28 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
    They will seek me diligently but they will not find me,
    29 Because they hated knowledge
    And did not choose the fear of the LORD.
    30 “They would not accept my counsel,
    They spurned all my reproof.
    31 “So they shall eat of the fruit of their own way
    And be satiated with their own devices.
    32 “For the waywardness of the [i]naive will kill them,
    And the complacency of fools will destroy them.
    33 “But he who listens to me shall [j]live securely
    And will be at ease from the dread of evil.”
