-Praying Thru Proverbs: 25: 1-14

by Dr. D ~ April 18th, 2019

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 for a vessel;
5 take away the wicked from the presence of the king,
and his throne will be established in righteousness.
6 Do not put yourself forward in the king’s presence
or stand in the place of the great,
7 for it is better to be told, “Come up here,”
than to be put lower in the presence of a noble.

What your eyes have seen
8 do not hastily bring into court,[a]
for[b] what will you do in the end,
when your neighbor puts you to shame?
9 Argue your case with your neighbor himself,
and do not reveal another’s secret,
10 lest he who hears you bring shame upon you,
and your ill repute have no end.

11 A word fitly spoken
is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
12 Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold
is a wise reprover to a listening ear.
13 Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest
is a faithful messenger to those who send him;
he refreshes the soul of his masters.
14 Like clouds and wind without rain
is a man who boasts of a gift he does not give. –ESV

Our Father,

It is your glory to conceal your knowledge; thank you Father for revealing everything we need in this life to be happy and loving. By your counsel you have taught us not to be arrogant and put ourselves forward for honor; in humility you have blessed us in the name of your Son Jesus.who is above all but washed the feet of his friends.

Lord let us always see clearly and identify the truth; let our lips speak only what is and what is to be through your guidance.

Let us never be boastful in what we may have but let us only rejoice in your glory, mercy, and love; let us boast only of the power and glory of your Son. Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of all according to your word and authority. Praise your name forevermore.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
