Proverbs 22 – True Wisdom

This Proverb seems to build on themes in my last two posts.

Ecclesiastes 11:1–2 – Cast thy bread upon the waters

Pro 22:9  He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.

Words of the Wise

Pro 22:17  Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.

Pro 22:18  For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.

Pro 22:19  That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.

Pro 22:20  Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,

Pro 22:21  That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?


Paul’s wise words to Timothy.

2Ti 3:14  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

2Ti 3:15  And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

2Ti 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Pro 22:22  Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:

Pro 22:23  For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.


Pro 22:24  Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:

Pro 22:25  Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.

Pro 22:10  Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.
