00:15 Hello, and welcome to His Words Are Life.
00:17 I'm Kelly Mowrer, and thank you for being with me again today
00:21 to read from the book of Proverbs.
00:22 Let's pray together before we start.
00:25 Dear Lord, Thank You for the wisdom that is contained in this
00:31 particular portion of the Bible that we're reading today.
00:35 May these words come into our hearts and give us a practical
00:42 way to serve you better and more wisely.
00:45 Send the Holy Spirit to teach us what you have for us
00:48 to learn here.
00:49 Thank You for loving us.
00:50 We love You so much.
00:53 I'm reading from Proverbs 8 and starting with verse 11,
00:58 and this is the King James version.
01:00 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that
01:05 may be desired are not to be compared to it.
01:09 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge
01:15 of witty inventions.
01:17 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy,
01:22 and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
01:27 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding;
01:31 I have strength.
01:33 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
01:38 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges
01:43 of the earth.
01:44 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early
01:49 shall find me.
01:51 Riches and honor are with me; yea, durable riches
01:55 and righteousness.
01:57 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold;
02:01 and my revenue than choice silver.
02:04 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst
02:08 of the paths of judgment: that I may cause those that love me
02:13 to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
02:17 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way,
02:22 before his works of old.
02:24 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning,
02:28 or ever the earth was.
02:30 When there were no depths, I was brought forth;
02:33 when there were no fountains abounding with water.
02:36 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills
02:40 was I brought forth: while as yet he had not made the earth,
02:43 nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
02:47 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a
02:51 compass upon the face of the depth: when he established
02:55 the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains
02:59 of the deep: when he gave to the sea his decree,
03:02 that the waters should not pass his commandment:
03:05 when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
03:09 then I was by him, as one brought up with him:
03:13 and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
03:17 rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth;
03:21 and my delights were with the sons of men.
03:24 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children:
03:27 for blessed are they that keep my ways.
03:32 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
03:38 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates,
03:43 waiting at the posts of my doors.
03:46 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain
03:52 favor of the Lord.
03:53 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul:
03:58 all they that hate me love death.
04:02 Reading in Proverbs chapter 9; this is the King James Version.
04:07 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out
04:11 her seven pillars: she hath killed her beasts;
04:15 she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
04:19 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest
04:24 places of the city, whoso is simple, let him turn in hither:
04:28 as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
04:31 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine
04:34 which I have mingled.
04:36 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way
04:40 of understanding.
04:41 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame:
04:47 and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.
04:53 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee:
04:57 rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
05:01 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser:
05:06 teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
05:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:
05:14 and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
05:18 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years
05:23 of thy life shall be increased.
05:25 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself:
05:28 but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.
05:32 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple,
05:36 and knoweth nothing.
05:38 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the
05:42 high places of the city, to call passengers who go
05:45 right on their ways: whoso is simple, let him turn in hither:
05:49 and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
05:52 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten
05:57 in secret is pleasant.
05:58 But he knoweth not that the dead are there;
06:02 and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
06:06 Proverbs chapter 10; this is the King James Version.
06:10 The Proverbs of Solomon.
06:13 A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is
06:18 the heaviness of his mother.
06:19 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness
06:26 delivereth from death.
06:27 The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish:
06:33 but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
06:36 He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand:
06:40 but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
06:44 He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth
06:49 in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
06:53 Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth
06:59 the mouth of the wicked.
07:00 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name
07:04 of the wicked shall rot.
07:05 The wise in heart will receive commandments:
07:09 but a prating fool shall fall.
07:13 He that walketh uprightly walketh surely:
07:17 but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.
07:21 He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow:
07:25 but a prating fool shall fall.
07:28 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life:
07:31 but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
07:34 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
07:40 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found:
07:45 but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
07:50 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish
07:54 is near destruction.
07:56 The rich man's wealth is his strong city:
07:59 the destruction of the poor is their poverty.
08:03 The labor of the righteous tendeth to life:
08:07 the fruit of the wicked to sin.
08:10 He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction:
08:14 but he that refuseth reproof erreth.
08:18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth
08:23 a slander, is a fool.
08:26 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin:
08:30 but he that refraineth his lips is wise.
08:34 The tongue of the just is as choice silver:
08:37 the heart of the wicked is little worth.
08:41 The lips of the righteous feed many:
08:45 but fools die for want of wisdom.
08:48 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich,
08:53 and he addeth no sorrow with it.
08:56 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief:
08:59 but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
09:03 The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him:
09:06 but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
09:10 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more:
09:13 but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
09:17 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes,
09:21 so is the sluggard to them that send him.
09:24 The fear of the Lord prolonged days: but the years of the
09:28 wicked shall be shortened.
09:30 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness:
09:33 but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
09:37 The way of the Lord is strength to the upright:
09:41 but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
09:44 The righteous shall never be removed:
09:48 but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
09:51 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom:
09:54 but the froward tongue shall be cut out.
09:58 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable:
10:01 but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
10:05 Proverbs 11; this is the King James Version.
10:09 A false balance is abomination to the Lord:
10:13 but a just weight is his delight.
10:16 When pride cometh, then cometh shame:
10:19 but with the lowly is wisdom.
10:22 The integrity of the upright shall guide them:
10:25 but the perverseness of transgressors
10:28 shall destroy them.
10:29 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness
10:34 delivereth from death.
10:36 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way:
10:40 but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
10:43 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them:
10:46 but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.
10:50 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish:
10:53 and the hope of unjust men perisheth.
10:57 The righteous is delivered out of trouble,
11:00 and the wicked cometh in his stead.
11:02 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbor:
11:06 but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
11:09 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth:
11:13 and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
11:15 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted:
11:18 but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
11:22 He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbor:
11:26 but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
11:30 A talebearer revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful
11:36 spirit concealeth the matter.
11:39 Where no counsel is, the people fall:
11:43 but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
11:48 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it:
11:53 and he that hateth suretyship is sure.
11:57 A gracious woman retaineth honor:
12:00 and strong men retain riches.
12:02 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul:
12:05 but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
12:08 The wicked worketh a deceitful work:
12:11 but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a
12:14 sure reward.
12:15 As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil
12:20 pursueth it to his own death.
12:22 They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the Lord:
12:27 but such as are upright in their way are his delight.
12:31 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished:
12:37 but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
12:40 As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman
12:46 which is without discretion.
12:49 the desire of the righteous is only good:
12:52 but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
12:56 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth;
13:00 and there is that withholdeth more than is meet,
13:04 but it tendeth to poverty.
13:06 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth
13:11 shall be watered also himself.
13:14 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him:
13:18 but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
13:21 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favor:
13:26 but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
13:31 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous
13:36 shall flourish as a branch.
13:37 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind:
13:41 and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.
13:44 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
13:47 and he that winneth souls is wise.
13:51 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth:
13:54 much more the wicked and the sinner.
13:56 Proverbs 12.
13:58 Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge:
14:02 but he that hateth reproof is brutish.
14:05 A good man obtaineth favor of the Lord:
14:09 but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.
14:12 A man shall not be established by wickedness:
14:15 but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.
14:18 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband:
14:22 but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
14:27 The thoughts of the righteous are right:
14:29 but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.
14:32 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood:
14:35 but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.
