-Praying Thru Proverbs: 27: 13-27

by Dr. D ~ April 25th, 2019

13 Take a man’s garment when he has put up security for a stranger,
and hold it in pledge when he puts up security for an adulteress.[b]
14 Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice,
rising early in the morning,
will be counted as cursing.
15 A continual dripping on a rainy day
and a quarrelsome wife are alike;
16 to restrain her is to restrain the wind
or to grasp[c] oil in one’s right hand.
17 Iron sharpens iron,
and one man sharpens another.[d]
18 Whoever tends a fig tree will eat its fruit,
and he who guards his master will be honored.
19 As in water face reflects face,
so the heart of man reflects the man.
20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied,
and never satisfied are the eyes of man.
21 The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,
and a man is tested by his praise.
22 Crush a fool in a mortar with a pestle
along with crushed grain,
yet his folly will not depart from him.

23 Know well the condition of your flocks,
and give attention to your herds,
24 for riches do not last forever;
and does a crown endure to all generations?
25 When the grass is gone and the new growth appears
and the vegetation of the mountains is gathered,
26 the lambs will provide your clothing,
and the goats the price of a field.
27 There will be enough goats’ milk for your food,
for the food of your household
and maintenance for your girls. –ESV


b.  Proverbs 27:13 Hebrew a foreign woman; a slight emendation yields (compare Vulgate; see also 20:16) foreigners

c.  Proverbs 27:16 Hebrew to meet with

d.  Proverbs 27:17 Hebrew sharpens the face of another


Our Father,

Help us through your counsel to avoid quarreling with those who are closest to us; bless all of our relationships by teaching us to love others like you have loved us.

Father, we seek friends that will help us grow closer to you and your son Jesus; we want closer relationships with those who would be like iron and actually sharpen and build up our lives.

Teach us Father to be satisfied in what ever condition we are living in and praise your name regardless; let our eyes be upon you and your Kingdom instead of those things that the world consider important. 

Counsel us also Father to be wise and righteous handling all that we have that we might provide for our families; may we also have a true heart that understands that everything we have is yours including the praise that others might give us. All praise belongs to you and your Son; Praise your name forever and thank you for your loving care.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
