Wisdom Series: Proverbs 9


Proverbs 9- Call of Wisdom & an Ear to the Wise

Proverbs 9:4-6

4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

  • Simple- an ignorant, foolish, or gullible person

  • Forsake- to quit or leave entirely, abandon, desert, to give up or renounce

  • Foolish- resulting from or showing a lack of sense, ill-considered, unwise

  • If you do not have wisdom, you can ask for wisdom and receive. We have to choose to go away from unwise things and go toward understanding. It is a choice we have to make.

Proverbs 9:8

“Reprove not the scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee”

  • Reprove- to criticize or correct, especially gently, to disapprove of strongly

  • Scorner- open or unqualified contempt; disdain

  • Rebuke- to express sharp, stern disapproval of, reprove, reprimand

  • Therefore, to the person who does not want to receive the truth or is unwise, it is not good to try to correct even gently. However, when the person is wise he will receive the direction.

Proverbs 9: 12

“If thou be wise thou shall be wise for theyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shall bear it.”

  • Wisdom benefits you!

  • But as a scorner, you will have to deal with the load of difficulty from choosing not to operate in wisdom alone.
