The Divisions of the Proverbs

JANUARY 3, 2020 
   The book of Proverbs has several main divisions:
  • Chapters 1-9 – Wisdom and Folly are contrasted

  • Chapters 10-24 – A collection of Proverbs written and set in order by Solomon himself.

  • Chapters 25-29 – Also proverbs of Solomon, however these were copied out by Hezekiah and his men.

  • Chapter 30 – A burden or writing or Agur son of Jakeh who is rather unknown.

  • Chapter 31 – Instruction given to King Lemuel by His mother. Some believe this may have been a name given to Solomon when he was young by his mother. This would mean the description of a virtuous woman would have been given by Bathsheba, one who herself had been betrayed from a path of virtue.

      As we take this book of Proverbs one small segment at a time, day after day, week after week, throughout this next year, it is my prayer God will use this to aid you in a blessed life, and walk with Him. It is my firm belief and experience through life, when we follow God’s leading, life is so much better.

      Tomorrow we Give you an outline for Next weeks readings.
