Ungodly Intentions Result In Conflict
Proverbs 30:32-33 (NIV)

32 “If you play the fool and exalt yourself,
or if you plan evil,
clap your hand over your mouth!

33 For as churning cream produces butter,
and as twisting the nose produces blood,
so stirring up anger produces strife.”

Proverbs Club Commentary

Forgo the paths of the Wicked.

Do not set foot on the path of the wicked
or walk in the way of evildoers.

Qualities Of The Righteous King
Proverbs 30:29-31 (NIV)

29 “There are three things that are stately in their stride,
four that move with stately bearing:

30 a lion, mighty among beasts,
who retreats before nothing;

31 a strutting rooster, a he-goat,
and a king secure against revolt.

Proverbs Club Commentary

A righteous leader is akin
to a lion, a rooster, and a he-goat;
all noble characteristics.

Creatures Small And Wise – Proverbs 30:24-28

Creatures Small And Wise
Proverbs 30:24-28

24 “Four things on earth are small,
yet they are extremely wise:

25 Ants are creatures of little strength,
yet they store up their food in the summer;

26 hyraxes are creatures of little power,
yet they make their home in the crags;

27 locusts have no king,
yet they advance together in ranks;

28 a lizard can be caught with the hand,
yet it is found in kings’ palaces.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Even small creatures without an advanced brain
act wisely, extremely wisely.
Shouldn’t we? Even instinctively?

a godless fool who gets plenty to eat,

23 a contemptible woman who gets married,
and a servant who displaces her mistress.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Four Earth Shakers
A manual worker who becomes the leader
A wicked person of plenty
An odious wife
A maidservant who evicts her maid

20 “This is the way of an adulterous woman:
She eats and wipes her mouth
and says, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong.’”

This is one of the most salacious verses in scripture.
She eats. She wipes. She says.
“You shall not commit adultery.”
