Proverbs 1:23-33 [WISDOM PERSONIFIED SPEAKING]
23        If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.
24        But since you rejected me when I called and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand,
25        since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke,
26        I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you–
27        when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
28      “Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me.
29        Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD,
30        since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke,
31        they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.
32        For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33        but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.”

    Hello Wes, your Dad told me about the Proverbs Project, and I am teaching Proverbs in my adult class at Levy for the next 6-8 weeks. I have wrestled with the idea of how to approach 31 chapters of information, and not in a verse by verse mode that would take a half a year to conclude. Maybe sorting the proverbs in the way you are would be a good approach? I would be interested in any thoughts you might have about this. By the way, could i use this grouping of scriptures on wisdom in this form you’ve put them in?

      Hi 🙂

      You are welcomed to use anything you find here – I have another file I could send you too that has a complete list of the verses arranged by theme on it. It isn’t quite finished, but it would probably be helpful to you. I can email it to you when I get back to my office.
