Book of Proverbs 16-18 Pride goeth before destruction

Proverbs 16-18

I'm beginning to zone out because of the repetition of the same messages over and over and over.
Shades of Job and Psalms.

The one thing my Atheist mind picked up on is the introduction of "Social Engineering" to the Bible.

My favorite line from this section;
17:28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

  1. My favourite is that line about grey hair being the sign of a righteous life (16:31). I started to go grey before I was 20. Now, I'd been assuming that colouring my hair was a sign of vanity (and doing it anyway), so if I stop and display just how righteous I am... that would be vanity too, I suppose.

    Oh well...
