Proverbs 19 - Formula for Life, Happiness AND Protection from harm? Yes, it's in there!

Welcome to Day 19 of our study of Proverbs!!!  Thank you for joining us!!!

Now, let's get to to it...


V1 Better be poor and honest than rich and dishonest.

V2 It is dangerous and sinful to rush into the unknown.

V3 A man may ruin his chances by his own foolishness and then blame it on The Lord!

V4 A wealthy man has many “friends”; the poor man has none left.

V5 Punish false witnesses. Track down liars.

V6 Many beg favors from a man who is generous; everyone is his friend.

V7 A poor man’s own brothers turn away from him in embarrassment; how much more his friends! He calls out after them, but they are gone.

V8 He who loves wisdom loves his own best interest and will be a success.

V9 A false witness shall be punished.

V10 It doesn't seem right for a fool to succeed or for a slave to rule over princes!

V11 A wise man restrains his anger and overlooks insults. This is to his credit.

V12 The king’s anger is as dangerous as a lion’s. But his approval is as refreshing as the dew on grass.

V13 A rebellious son is a calamity to his father, and a nagging wife annoys  like constant dripping.

V14 A father can give his sons homes and riches, but only The Lord can give them understanding wives.

V15 A lazy man sleeps soundly – and goes hungry.

V16 Keep the commandments and keep your life; despising them means death.

V17 When you help the poor you are lending to The Lord – and He pays wonderful interest on your loan!

V18 Discipline your son in his early years while there is hope. If you don’t you will ruin his life.

V19 A short-tempered man must bear his own penalty; you can’t do much to help him. If you try once you must try a dozen times!

V20 Get all the advice you can and be wise the rest of your life.

V21 Man proposes, God disposes.

V22 Kindness makes a man attractive. And it is better to be poor than dishonest.

V23 Reverence for God gives life, happiness, and protection from harm.

V24 Some men are so lazy they won’t even feed themselves!

V25 Punish a mocker and others will learn from his example. Reprove a wise man and he will be the wiser.

V26 A son who mistreats his father or mother is a public disgrace.

V27 Stop listening to teaching that contradicts what you know is right.

V28 A worthless witness cares nothing for truth – he enjoys his sinning too much.

V 29 Mockers and rebels shall be severely punished.
