Evil Plotters And Their Fires – Proverbs 16:27

Welcome To Proverbs Club
Evil Plotters And Their Fires
Proverbs 16:27 (NIV)

27 A scoundrel plots evil,
and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.

Proverbs Club Commentary

The Wicked plan evil,
organize it with others when needed,
and execute their criminal plots.

“Scorching Fire” not only describes their words,
but also their deeds, and, of course, their fate.

Welcome To Proverbs Club
Redeeming Your Work From Hunger
Proverbs 16:26 (NIV)

26 The appetite of laborers works for them;
their hunger drives them on.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Because of the fall of Mankind,
men are cursed to work
by “the sweat of their brow.”

Hunger is the motivator.

Work, however, can be redeemed
by dedicating it to God.
