M'Cheyne Bible Reading Notes

Proverbs 25 – To those who have read their Bibles

I leave this as an exercise to those who have read their Bibles. I could be explicit here, but it is enough to point out that this chapter is rich in it’s wisdom sayings that are quoted by Jesus and/or the Apostles in the New Testament. If you need help take out a good reference Bible.

Pro 25:1  These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.

Pro 25:2  It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

Pro 25:6  Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:

Pro 25:7  For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

Pro 25:8  Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame.

Pro 25:9  Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another:

Pro 25:10  Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.

Pro 25:11  A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Pro 25:12  As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.

Pro 25:15  By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.

Pro 25:17  Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour’s house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.

Pro 25:18  A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.

Pro 25:19  Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.

Pro 25:20  As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart.

Pro 25:21  If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:

Pro 25:22  For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.

Pro 25:23  The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.

Pro 25:24  It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.

Pro 25:26  A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.

Pro 25:27  It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.

Pro 25:28  He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
