about

Proverbs is a collection of wise sayings. While much of the book is written by King Solomon, it also contains a section of sayings by Agur, and King Lemuel's mother. The focus of the book is to draw its readers into seeking God and living according to His purpose. The fear of the Lord seeems to be a central teaching of the book and underlying motivation for livin the life tht the writers describe. The heart cry of each writer is that their readers will be drawn to fear their great creator God and live in a way that brings honor and respect to His name.

The inspiration for this book comes from Solomon's observation of life. He wactches a young man's encounter with an adulterous woman in Proverbs 7:6-23 and tells his readers of the consequences of this action in his life. He speaks about marriage, friendships and business relations. He addresses the issues of alcoholism, laziness and immorality, issues that break down a society. He also speaks to the matters of justice, fairness, hard work and integrity, issues that will build up a society.

Solomon's insights in this book are not his own. They are the purposes of a Creator God as found in His Word. These purposes of God are the hope for our nations. By following them, we will find great blessing.

This commentary examines each chapter of the book of Proverbs. Each chapter is concluded with some questions for consideration and some points for prayer to help make the passage more applicable to the life of the reader.
