PROVERBS LESSON 1The book of proverbs has been known as the book of wisdom from the verybeginning. Most of the writing of Proverbs has been credited to the pen ofSolomon. God has given Solomon the wisdom to rule his people fairly.Proverbs is actually a book of instructions on how to live a life pleasingto God and how to be more peaceful with all of mankind. It is a wonderfulbook for people of all ages to study how to live moral, peaceful lives. Thepurpose of the book is for moral instructions on everyday living.The main topic is the fear of the Lord. In fact the "Fear of the Lord"is mentioned fourteen times. Solomon's instructions were very good. He wouldhave been better off if he had heeded his own instructions. Solomon, in hislater life strayed from his own teaching.A "proverb" is a wise saying. It is similar to a parable in fact itbears a hidden esonofDavid,kingofWe see that these wise sayings are of Solomon, who is the second son ofDavid and Bathsheba. David and Solomon were each king of Israel for fortyyears.Proverbs 1:2 "To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words ofunderstanding;" Proverbs 1:3 "To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice,and judgment, and equity;" Proverbs 1:4 "To give subtilty to the simple, tothe young man knowledge and discretion.""Wisdom" is the ultimate goal, so we see it mentioned here."Instruction" can flow out from the greatest teacher of all time and tillwe will be no more the wiser. The point made here is to receive theinstruction into your being and in so doing become the wiser. We have toreceive the instructions for it to help us. We must open up "perceive" ourunderstanding. The "equity", "judgement", and "justice" are the fruits ofwisdom. A wise man will be just, etc. To give "subtilty to the simple" justmeans a knowing of surroundings so as not to be tricked into anything. This"knowledge" and "discretion" has to do with teaching a youth to weigh outright from wrong. To make a proper decision after thinking it over, would bean even simpler way of saying this.Proverbs 1:5 "A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and aman of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:"Be quick to listen and slow to speak is a very good way of learning. Aman of understanding will want to be counseled by older, wiser men. Theywill be quick to be instructed by someone who has already experienced thesame thing. These wise counsels can save many mistakes.Proverbs 1:6 "To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; thewords of the wise, and their dark sayings."Jesus said that now we look through a dark glass. We cannot understandthe secrets of proverbs and parables now. We understand them to the extent1

that the Holy Spirit reveals them to us. Even the disciples had Jesusinterpret his parables. The Holy Spirit, working as a teacher, helps usinterpret the hidden meanings.Proverbs 1:7"The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge:[but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.There is very little left to say about this statement. We know the fearof anything other than God is lack of faith. This type of fear of God wouldcause reverent worship of him. In James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom, lethim ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; andit shall be given him." A fool does not even realize that instruction andwisdom will benefit him. He goes away ignorant as before, because he willnot let anyone instruct him.Proverbs 1:8 "My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsakenot the law of thy mother:"The two people in the world who want you to have the best of everythingare your mother and father. The instructions they are trying to get you toheed are to save you headache and troubles. They have your welfare at heart.Accept their instructions so that you can gain from their experience and nothave to make the same mistakes they have already made. They wish you onlygood, not evil.Proverbs 1:9 "For they [shall be] an ornament of grace unto thy head,and chains about thy neck."The greatest gift a parent can give to a child is the gift of goodmoral teaching. This "grace" above, I believe, is just that. These parentshave set high moral standards and passed them on to their children.This"grace on the head" just means the crown of life they will receive if theystay with these high morals.Proverbs 1:10"My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not."You see, we are a free moral agent. We decide whether we will sin ornot. Just because the crowd is sinning, is no reason to get involved. Useyour own free will and say "no" to sin, even if it is inviting. In the longrun, we are responsible for our own decisions.Proverbs 1:11 "If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood,let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:" Proverbs 1:12 "Let usswallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down intothe pit:" Proverbs 1:13 "We shall find all precious substance, we shall fillour houses with spoil:" Proverbs 1:14 "Cast in thy lot among us; let us allhave one purse:" Proverbs 1:15 "My son, walk not thou in the way with them;refrain thy foot from their path: Proverbs 1:16 "For their feet run to evil,and make haste to shed blood."This is warning not to keep evil company. There is guilt byassociation. You may not be guilty of their sins; but if you arecaughtwith them, you will pay the terrible penalty with them. Many a youngster hasgotten into serious trouble because he wanted to be part of the gang.Children's favorite saying to parents is, "everyone is doing it". Sometimespeer pressure causes a youngster to join a gang. He probably has no idea2

they are stealing or killing when he joins; but the longer he stays, themore deeply involved he becomes. The only way to avoid this is just whatthe Scripture advises. Don't go with them in the first place. The time tosay "no" is before you get in deep.Proverbs 1:17 "Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of anybird."As a bird flies into a net and is caught, so will the sinner get caughtif he goes head long into sin. We know the net is there, but get into itanyway.Proverbs 1:18 "And they lay wait for their [own] blood; they lurkprivily for their [own] lives."A person laying in wait to kill someone else is actually sealing theirown doom.Proverbs 1:19 "So [are] the ways of every one that is greedy of gain;[which] taketh away the life of the owners thereof."Greed for things that do not belong to you is certainly the cause ofmost sin toward your fellow man.Proverbs 1:20"Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in thestreets:" Proverbs 1:21 "She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in theopenings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, [saying],"Proverbs 1:22 "How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and thescorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?"An idle mind brings on sin. Wisdom is a gift from God, and we must prayto receive it. Knowledge is accumulated learning that we study and acquireby effort upon our part. Only a fool will turn away from the knowledge andwisdom of God.Proverbs 1:23 "Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out myspirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you."God is telling the people to learn by His reproof. God is offering topour out His Spirit. God the Holy Spirit will reveal the meaning of the wordto us if we will accept His Spirit into us.Proverbs 1:24 "Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretchedout my hand, and no man regarded;" Proverbs 1:25 "But ye have set at noughtall my counsel, and would none of my reproof:" Proverbs 1:26 "I also willlaugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;" Proverbs 1:27"When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as awhirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you."Those who refuse the call of Jesus Christ as Savior or those who havenot reached out to receive the Lord have nothing good to look for. In theirtime of trouble, they have no one to turn to. The Lord will have no sympathyfor those who have rejected His salvation.Proverbs 1:28 "Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer;they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:"3

There is a time when the Lord will turn his back on us if we totallyreject the Lord. When that time comes, The Lord will not hear our plea anymore.Proverbs 1:29 "For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose thefear of the LORD:" Proverbs 1:30 "They would none of my counsel: theydespised all my reproof."This shows that they had totally rejected everything that the Lord hadoffered them. They did not want to learn the ways of the Lord.Proverbs 1:31 "Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way,and be filled with their own devices." Proverbs 1:32 "For the turning awayof the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroythem."This is just another way of saying: If you reject the Lord, you willreap whatever you sow. Having your eyes and desires set on things of thisworld can do nothing but destroy you. There is no eternity in earthlydesires.Proverbs 1:33 "But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, andshall be quiet from fear of evil."This is a beautiful description of the security and peace that comeswhen we are hidden in the Lord Jesus. Fear will not be a part of ourvocabulary, because it is the opposite of faith. If we have faith in theLord, there is no fear.4

PROVERBS LESSON 2We will began this lesson in Proverbs 2:1 "My son, if thou wilt receivemy words, and hide my commandments with thee;" Proverbs 2:2 "So that thouincline thine ear unto wisdom, [and] apply thine heart to understanding;"Proverbs 2:3 "Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, [and] liftest up thyvoice for understanding;" Proverbs 2:4 "If thou seekest her as silver, andsearchest for her as [for] hid treasures;" Proverbs 2:5 "Then shalt thouunderstand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God."This is like a prayer. In fact, it is what we should all pray. For aperson to really be able to live a Godly life, you must first know what Godexpects. This first sentence says "receive my words". The heart is the placefor the commandments and the Word of God to be hidden. If we receive intoour being the wisdom of God and apply it to our heart we will do the thingsthat are right in God's sight. Romans 10:10 "For with the heart manbelieveth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made untosalvation."If we would spend even half the time learning the Word of God as wespend searching for worldly wealth, we would find the treasures of God.Knowledge has to be accumulated by learning. Wisdom is a gift from God. Aswe uncover the secrets of the Bible, We will have reverent fear of God andbe filled with His knowledge.Proverbs 2:6 "For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh]knowledge and understanding.""Wisdon" is a gift from God, as we said. We read in James 1:5 "If anyof you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally,and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." Not out of our mouth comethknowledge, but out of His. The knowledge is in His Word.Proverbs 2:7 "He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: [he is] abuckler to them that walk uprightly."God is the source of all wisdom. His kind of wisdom brings peace. Yousee, we are to be wise unto salvation. If we are righteous it is because wehave taken on the righteousness of Christ and that is the greatest wisdom wecan acquire. The Christian actually takes on the mind of Christ. ICorinthians 2:16 "For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he mayinstruct him? But we have the mind of Christ." The Lord is our Protector(buckler) if we walk uprightly in our salvation day by day.Proverbs 2:8 "He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the wayof his saints."This, to me, is speaking of those who walk in the way of the Lord.Those who are justified by the Lord and walk justly. For the justified whofollow in his "judgements" (law), He "preserves" (saves) our way.The"saints" (we Christians) are eager to follow in the teachings of the Lord.Jesus is the way.Proverbs 2:9 "Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment,and equity; [yea], every good path."6

This, in V-9, is connected with V-8. This is speaking of the saints.The saints shall"understand righteousness, and judgements, and equity(straightness) and every good path", Narrow is the path to righteousness.Jesus is that path. In fact, He is our righteousness. He is the righteousJudge.Proverbs 2:10 "When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge ispleasant unto thy soul;" Proverbs 2:11 "Discretion shall preserve thee,understanding shall keep thee:"Wisdom is an advantage to the one who possesses it. Wisdom withKnowledge gives a person tremendous advantage. This understanding anddiscretion is not of the worldly, but of the Lord and His Word. A reallygood working knowledge of God's Word can keep you from making mistakes. Theanswers to all of life's problems can be found in the Word of God. The heartcontrols the conscious and subconscious actions of man. If the heart of manis stayed on the Lord, there is no way that man can be defeated.Proverbs 2:12 "To deliver thee from the way of the evil [man], from theman that speaketh froward things;" Proverbs 2:13 "Who leave the paths ofuprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;"Knowledge of the Word of God will keep you away from the ways of theevil man. You see, the righteous (believers in Christ) walk in the light andhave no fellowship with darkness. In First John chapter one we read who walkin darkness and who walk in light.I John 1:5 "This then is the message which we have heard of him, anddeclare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." IJohn 1:6 "If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness,we lie, and do not the truth:" I John 1:7 "But if we walk in the light, ashe is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood ofJesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."Proverbs 2:14 "Who rejoice to do evil, [and] delight in the frowardnessof the wicked;" Proverbs 2:15 "Whose ways [are] crooked, and [they] frowardin their paths:"It seems in our society today television, movies, and radio try to makeit appear that to live in sin is fun. Truly this is a terrible lie. Itbrings heartache and troubles in this life and an eternity in hell. The waysof the world will lead to destruction, not life. Drunkenness, drugs,immorality, lying, cheating, and stealing are part of the "froward wickedlife". Not one of these things make for a happy ending.Proverbs 2:16 "To deliver thee from the strange woman, [even] from thestranger [which] flattereth with her words;"Today those who are involved with strange women (women of the world)can look forward to diseases that cannot be cured by medicine now V-17 and V-18 you see the fate of those who live unholy lives. Theterrible disease AIDS is just one of the many modern incurable diseases thatare associated with sex outside of marriage.7

Proverbs 2:17 "Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteththe covenant of her God." Proverbs 2:18 "For her house inclineth unto death,and her paths unto the dead."God's covenant with man kind (men and women) is two fold. We must keepHis laws to receive His blessing. God punishes sin. When we deliberatelybreak God's laws, we can expect death, not life. God says in His law thatmen and women are to save themselves for the marriage bed. Notice in V-19,that those who follow this sinful way of life find death.Proverbs 2:19 "None that go unto her return again, neither take theyhold of the paths of life."There are only two paths to take. The path of sin leads to death anddestruction. The path of righteousness leads to life everlasting.Proverbs 2:20 "That thou mayest walk in the way of good [men], and keepthe paths of the righteous."The word "mayest" in this verse lets us know that it is our choice. Itis our decision to live the way of the world or to live for the Lord Jesus.Our free will determines which. This is a decision no one else can make foryou. You must decide: life or death.Proverbs 2:21 "For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfectshall remain in it." Proverbs 2:22 "But the wicked shall be cut off from theearth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it."In Psalms 37:29 we read, "The righteous shall inherit the land, anddwell therein for ever." We have seen over and over how the wicked will bedriven off the land. Canaan became the land of Israel because the wickedwere driven out. The Christians shall reign 1000 years with Jesus.Revelation 20:6 "Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the firstresurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall bepriests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."8

Proverbs 1:1 "The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;" We see that these wise sayings are of Solomon, who is the second son of David and Bathsheba. David and Solomon were each king of Israel for forty years. Proverbs 1:2 "To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of
