In my previous post I mentioned reading the Book of Proverbs, in the Old Testament. It comes right after Psalms. This book is full of wisdom and truth that does not change no matter the circumstances. It also gives one example of how practical the Bible is, even for today’s culture. So what exactly is a proverb? It is defined as a short pithy saying in general use, stating a general truth or piece of advice. Here are 20 proverbs with chapter and verse:

Here my son, your father’s instruction, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching” (1:8).

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding, In all your ways acknowledge Him and he will make your paths straight” (3:5-6).

Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put devious lips far from you” (4:24).

The one who commits adultery with a woman is lacking sense” (6:32).

A wise son makes a father glad, but a foolish son is a grief to his mother” (10:1).

When there are many words transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise” (10:19).

“Anxiety in the heart of a {person} weighs it down, but a good word makes it glad” (12:25).

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled is a tree of life” (13:12).

“He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm” (13:20).

There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (14:12).

“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (15:1).

He who neglects discipline despises himself, but he who listens to reproof acquires understanding” (15:32).               

A perverse man spreads strife, and a slanderer separates intimate friends” (16:28)

“He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who captures a city” (16:32).

“Listen to counsel and accept discipline, that you may be wise the rest of your days” (19:20).

“He who guards his mouth and his tongue, guards his soul from troubles” (21:23).

Do not associate with a man given to anger, or go with a hot-tempered man, lest you learn his ways, and find a snare for yourself” (22:24).

“Like clouds and wind without rain, is a man who boasts of his gifts falsely” (25:14).

“Like one who takes a dog by the ears, is he who passes by and meddles with strife not belonging to him” (26:17).

Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy” (31:9).
