Bible Reading Challenge Week 35 Day 2

Our reading challenge for the day is Proverbs 21-25. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

The couplets we have been seeing for some time continue but then in chapter 23 we return to longer discussions, again returning to the folly shown in adultery, then in drunkenness. As with all folly, these are deceptive. It is the wisdom found in the person of the LORD which is reasoned and not deceptive. After a recapitulation of the nature of divine wisdom we return to brief provers, first of a “wise” person and then proverbs of Solomon collected and arranged some generations later.
