SPECIAL PASSAGES IN
THE BOOK OF PROVERBS
ACQUIRING NEW LIGHT.

This Is Appendix 75 From The Companion Bible.

  In the Companion notes to the Book of Proverbs, it will be observed that certain words are carefully discriminated: such as the words for "fool", "poor"; the singular and plural of the wicked, the righteous, etc., are noted. But certain proverbs also are presented in a new light altogether. Among these are the following:
1:7. "The fear of the LORD".  5:14. "Almost in all evil".
1:17. "In vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird".  16:1. "The preparations of the heart in man . . . is from the LORD".
2:7. "He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous".  21:1. "The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD as the rivers of water".
3:2, 16. "Length of days" supposed to be given by "wisdom". See also 4:10; 9:11; 10:27.  21:4. "An high look, and a proud heart . . . is sin".
5:2. "That thy lips may keep knowledge".
