“Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.”
With this chapter we meet Agur the son of Jakeh, and all that we know of him is right here! Obviously the theme of Proverbs has not changed and we are introduced to a series of lists that I would commend to your further study:
We learn of four things that are never satisfied; four things that are too wonderful; four things that disquiet the earth; four little things that are exceedingly wise; and finally four things that go well!
I read through Proverbs twice a year and have done so for most of my Christian walk and yet each time I come to these lists there is more to ponder! It should always remind us of the glorious nature of our Creator and Savior Jesus!
“I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One. Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know?”
