Daily Reading Proverbs 18

Listen & Read along 

1  Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.

2  A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.

3  When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.

4  The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

5  It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.

6  A fool’s lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.

7  A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

8  The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

9  He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.

10  The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

11  The rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit.

12  Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.

13  He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

14  The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?

15  The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.

16  A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.

17  He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.

18  The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.

19  A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

20  A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

22  Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.

23  The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.

24  A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

About liv4Christ4ever

Seeking to promote true life through Jesus Christ by making the Gospel relevant to our lives today. Presenting the word of God as the final authority on how we as believers, hypocrites and those yet to believe should live in order to please our Creator. One thing is sure, the creature (all creation) was created for a purpose. We will do well by acknowledging our Creator and using His gift of free will to accomplish His purposes. According to scripture “Every knee will bow (Submission) and every tongue will confess (Confession)” to Jesus Christ the Lord. We just choose to submit and confess Christ’s Lordship daily that we might live with Him now and forever.

Discussion

One thought on “Daily Reading Proverbs 18

  1. Verse 1 tells us that something inside us all longs for answers to the unknown. I believe it’s in those times when find ourself by ourself (in other words alone) that we truly begin to seek those answers. We begin to honestly look to the left and right seeing no one else to blame (for our issues) that our Creator is able to address our issues. However we must desire to know His counsel more than we desire to always have the company of others. It sad to see that a great many of people are skipping verse 1 and more closely resresemble the actions in verse 2. Many have no desire to understand truth. Many aren’t willing to look outside themselves to to find their purpose from God. They instead rather seek to understand their own heart. They want to soul search and convince others of their pursuit of philosophy and passions as fulfillment in this life. So with the wicked imagination of our own heart we devise schemes of morality (self righteousness), doing whatever we see as right in our own eyes, but the end of that matter in death.

    Grace & Truth,
