Bible Reading- Proverbs 31 The Words of King Lemuel 31 The words of King Lemuel. An oracle that his mother taught him: 2 What are you doing, my son? What are you doing, son of my womb?    What are you doing, son of my vows?3 Do not give your strength to women,    your ways to those who destroy kings.4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel,    it is not for kings to drink […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 30 The Words of Agur 30 The words of Agur son of Jakeh. The oracle. The man declares, I am weary, O God;    I am weary, O God, and worn out.2 Surely I am too stupid to be a man.    I have not the understanding of a man.3 I have not learned wisdom,    nor have I knowledge of the Holy One.4 Who has ascended to heaven and […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 29 29 He who is often reproved, yet stiffens his neck,    will suddenly be broken beyond healing.2 When the righteous increase, the people rejoice,    but when the wicked rule, the people groan.3 He who loves wisdom makes his father glad,    but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.4 By justice a king builds up the land,    but he who exacts gifts tears it down.5 A man who flatters his neighbor    spreads a net for his feet.6 An […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 28 28 The wicked flee when no one pursues,    but the righteous are bold as a lion.2 When a land transgresses, it has many rulers,    but with a man of understanding and knowledge,    its stability will long continue.3 A poor man who oppresses the poor    is a beating rain that leaves no food.4 Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,    but those who keep the law strive against them.5 Evil […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 27 27 Do not boast about tomorrow,    for you do not know what a day may bring.2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;    a stranger, and not your own lips.3 A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty,    but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.4 Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming,    but who can stand before jealousy?5 Better is open rebuke    than hidden love.6 Faithful are the wounds […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 26 26 Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,    so honor is not fitting for a fool.2 Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying,    a curse that is causeless does not alight.3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,    and a rod for the back of fools.4 Answer not a fool according to his folly,    lest you be like him yourself.5 Answer […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 25 More Proverbs of Solomon 25 These also are proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied. 2 It is the glory of God to conceal things,    but the glory of kings is to search things out.3 As the heavens for height, and the earth for depth,    so the heart of kings is unsearchable.4 Take away the dross from the silver,    and the smith has material […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 24 24 Be not envious of evil men,    nor desire to be with them,2 for their hearts devise violence,    and their lips talk of trouble. 3 By wisdom a house is built,    and by understanding it is established;4 by knowledge the rooms are filled    with all precious and pleasant riches.5 A wise man is full of strength,    and a man of knowledge enhances his might,6 for by wise guidance you can wage your war,    and in abundance […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 23 23 When you sit down to eat with a ruler,    observe carefully what is before you,2 and put a knife to your throat    if you are given to appetite.3 Do not desire his delicacies,    for they are deceptive food.4 Do not toil to acquire wealth;    be discerning enough to desist.5 When your eyes light on it, it is gone,    for suddenly it sprouts wings,    flying like an eagle […]

Bible Reading- Proverbs 22 22 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,    and favor is better than silver or gold.2 The rich and the poor meet together;    the Lord is the Maker of them all.3 The prudent sees danger and hides himself,    but the simple go on and suffer for it.4 The reward for humility and fear of the Lord    is riches and honor and life.5 Thorns and snares are […]
