Book of Proverbs 19-21

Proverbs 19-21

Nothing extraordinary stood out for me today.

My favorite line:

21:9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

This is a close second:

21:20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.

What are your favorites?

  1. Just a few i like.

    20:4 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

    20:22 Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee.

    21:13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard.

    21:19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

  2. @Edward,
    I meant to mention 20:4! Thanks for mentioning it.
    21:19 is also well worth remembering.

  3. Damn I meant to say 21:13 was worth remembering!
    Don't tell my wife!

  4. Not that my wife is angry or contentious!!!
