Proverbs 2 Notes, Meaning, and Commentary

Proverbs 2


Proverbs 2:1

My son, if thou wilt receive my words, And lay up my commandments with thee;

Proverbs 2:2

So as to incline thine ear unto wisdom, And apply thy heart to understanding;

Proverbs 2:3

Yea, if thou cry after discernment, And lift up thy voice for understanding;

Proverbs 2:4

If thou seek her as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures:

Proverbs 2:5

Then shalt thou understand the fear of Jehovah, And find the knowledge of God.

Proverbs 2:6

For Jehovah giveth wisdom; Out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding:

Proverbs 2:7

He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright; [He is] a shield to them that walk in integrity;

Proverbs 2:8

That he may guard the paths of justice, And preserve the way of his saints.

Proverbs 2:9

Then shalt thou understand righteousness and justice, And equity, [yea], every good path.

Proverbs 2:10

For wisdom shall enter into thy heart, And knowledge shall be pleasant unto thy soul;

Proverbs 2:11

Discretion shall watch over thee; Understanding shall keep thee:

Proverbs 2:12

To deliver thee from the way of evil, From the men that speak perverse things;

Proverbs 2:13

Who forsake the paths of uprightness, To walk in the ways of darkness;

Proverbs 2:14

Who rejoice to do evil, And delight in the perverseness of evil;

Proverbs 2:15

Who are crooked in their ways, And wayward in their paths:

Proverbs 2:16

To deliver thee from the strange woman, Even from the foreigner that flattereth with her words;

Proverbs 2:17

That forsaketh the friend of her youth, And forgetteth the covenant of her God:

Proverbs 2:18

For her house inclineth unto death, And her paths unto the dead;

Proverbs 2:19

None that go unto her return again, Neither do they attain unto the paths of life:

Proverbs 2:20

That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, And keep the paths of the righteous.

Proverbs 2:21

For the upright shall dwell in the land, And the perfect shall remain in it.

Proverbs 2:22

But the wicked shall be cut off from the land, And the treacherous shall be rooted out of it.
