Introduction to Proverbs. Verses 1:1 – 1:7

1:1THE PROVERBS (truths obscurely expressed, maxims, and parables) of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:

Proverb: a condensed but memorable saying embodying some important fact of experience that is taken as true by many people.(Merriam Webster)

A saying that is:

1. an important fact of experience.

a. The accumulation of knowledge or skill that results from direct participation in events or activities.

b. The content of direct observation or participation in an event.

Experience allows direct participation or direct observation, but in both cases you had to have been there, either directly involved or as a direct observer. There is no second hand experience, only second hand knowledge.

2. taken as true by many people.

a. This saying has been recognized as the truth by most if not all of the people who have heard it. Many will grudgingly acknowledge the truth even if they are not willing to walk in the same truth. People recognize it as the truth, but have hardened their heart against the application of the same in their lives.

3. condensed to the core value while retaining enough of the intent to be reconstituted with some thought and meditation.

4. memorable because it has a strong ring of truth.

Proverbs are truths that require sincere consideration, they are not directly spelled out to you as instructions and they are obscure enough to make you seek the intent of the truth.

There are a variety of involvements in any event from which your “experience” is drawn. The experience becomes stronger after the event as you reflect upon the details. Every experience can bring a good result if your shine the Word of God upon it and accept the reflection of God’s truth from it and not your own personal justifications or worldly wisdom. That which is good reflects back brightly and that which is evil reflects no light and appears as a black hole from which nothing returns that goes that way.


2a That people may know skillful and godly b Wisdom and instruction, discern and comprehend the words of understanding and insight,

To know, not know of. To know by first hand experience, to see skillful and Godly wisdom at work and recognize it as Godly wisdom. You recognize those things that you know, and the greater your knowledge of them, the quicker you will recognize Godly wisdom and instruction and this recognition will encourage and strengthen your resolve to forge ahead quickly in the confidence of accomplishing God’s will. The more often that you exercise skillful and godly wisdom and instruction, the greater your knowledge and experience of it. This experience of the results of having applied godly wisdom and instruction brings discernment of “words of understanding and insight” when they are present, recognition and comprehension.

3Receive instruction in wise dealing and the discipline of wise thoughtfulness, righteousness, justice, and integrity,

To receive:

Receiving is to accept and make it your own. To receive is to; come into possession of; to be subject to; to perceive something; walk through the experience with heart wide open; express willingness to have; to welcome something; to confess something with your words and actions; to regard with favor.

Instructions: are attitudes and steps by which something is to be accomplished.

Wise dealing: Interaction with yourself and between yourself and others that is purposefully aimed at fulfilling the will of God, which is to bring about the Kingdom of God, which is now.

For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you]. Luke 17:21 AMP

The discipline of wise thoughtfulness implies that you make a conscious decision to apply godly wisdom and make it the dominant factor in your thoughts, to see all things from God’s perspective.

The discipline of righteousness is one of striving to stay in right standing according to God’s word. This is not making yourself subject to the “Law”, rather a continuous appreciation of the total forgiveness of sin that you accepted when you received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. We have the righteousness of Christ, believe it and you are in right standing.

the righteousness of God which comes by believing with personal trust and confident reliance on Jesus Christ (the Messiah). [And it is meant] for all who believe.” Rom 3:22 AMP

The discipline of justice is one of careful application of Godly wisdom to all decisions regarding other people. That you apply the same standards to all whom you deal with, whether family or non family, liked or disliked, you are fair and just to all with no respecter of persons.

The discipline of integrity implies a rigorous effort to insure the solidity of all the components of, and the proper use of and placement of all factors of your reasoning. One element in your reasoning in which you have compromised by the hardening of your heart or self justification will weaken the results, this flaw will weaken the integrity.

4That prudence may be given to the simple, and knowledge, discretion, and discernment to the youth —

Prudence; To consider the consequences of your actions and decisions beforehand.

Knowledge; Having First hand experience and not simply information about the subject.

Discretion; The ability to avoid offering offense.

The word offense originates from a Greek word that refers to “the bait in the trap”. This is why the original use of this word in English was, “to offer offense” and “to take offense”, you either bait someone to be in a state of defense or you have decided to interpret the actions of another person as being an attack upon your person. Either way, it is the bait to trap you into a state of defense from which you go on the offense against your presumed attacker.

the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Rev 12:10 KJV

Discernment; having keenly selective judgment. These are the things that most youth lack. You have to seek them and you seek them only after you have a fear of God.

5The wise also will hear and increase in learning, and the person of understanding will acquire skill and attain to sound counsel [so that he may be able to steer his course rightly] [Prov 9:9.]

Those already having acquired wise thoughtfulness, knowledge, discretion and discernment will increase the quality of these attributes and improve their ability to use them.

6That people may understand a proverb and a figure of speech or an enigma with its interpretation, and the words of the wise and their dark sayings or riddles.

7The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning and the principal and choice part of knowledge [its starting point and its essence]; but fools despise skillful and godly Wisdom, instruction, and discipline. [Ps 111:10.]

It is only in the state of reverent and worshipful fear that we gain wisdom, outside of this state there is no wisdom.
