     [ Illustration: Today's painting illustrates those proverbs in today's chapter which speak of justice. ]


[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: In Proverbs 11, Solomon continues his comparisons and contrasts between the righteous and the wicked.
     The subjects covered in this chapter are these:
          Weights and measures (1);
          Pride and humility (2);
          Plans made in Integrity and in perverseness (3);
          Riches verses righteousness (4);
          The path of the righteous and of the wicked (5);
          The upright delivered and the transgressors taken (6);
          The plans and the hopes of the wicked and of the unjust perish (7);
          The righteous are delivered and the wicked come into trouble (8)
          The hypocrite destroys his neighbor but the just are delivered (9);
          When the righteous prosper the city rejoices; when the wicked perish the city also rejoices (10);
          The upright exalt the city and the wicked overthrow it (11);
          Despising and respecting others (12);
          The talebearer and the trustworthy (13);
          Counsel (14);
          Promissory notes (15);
          Grace and strength (16);
          Mercy and cruelty (17);
          The wicked sow deceit but the righteous are rewarded (18);
          Righteousness gives life, and evil brings death (19);
          The LORD abominates the crooked; but he delights in the upright (20);
          The effect of the wicked and the righteous on others (21);
          A woman without discretion (22);
          Desires of the righteous and the desires of the wicked (23);
          Generosity and stinginess (24);
          Blessings for those who bless others (25);
          Hoarding and selling (26);
          Searching for good and searching for evil (27);
          Those who trust in riches fall; but the righteous flourish (28);
          Troublemakers and fools (29);
          The effects of righteousness and of soul-winning (30);
          Rewards for the righteous and for the wicked (31).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

     (1:1 - 24:34) - 968 - 946 B.C., Israel
     A. Section 1 - Proverbs of Solomon (1:1 - 22:16)
          1). Sub-Section 1 - "The Proverbs of Solomon, Son of David" (1:1 - 9:18)
               a). Purpose: To teach the fear of the LORD, the beginning of wisdom (1:1-7, esp. 7)
               b). Precepts: The seductions of folly verses the attractions of wisdom (1:8 - 9:18)
                    (1). Part 1: (1:8 - 4:27)
                         (a). Folly: Wicked Companions Bring Death (1:8-19)
                         (b). Wisdom: Wisdom Brings Life and reward (1:20 - 4:27)
                    (2). Part 2: (5:1 - 6:19)

          2). Sub-Section 2 - "The Proverbs of Solomon" (10:1 - 22:16)
                    Note: This section builds on the previous section by offering a series of contrasts between the wise and the foolish and between wisdom and folly in general.
                    Having offered a strong persuasion in the previous section to follow wisdom, the author now shows what wisdom is in daily life.
                    In the latter sections the proverbs are generally arranged individually, and groupings are less frequent and mainly shorter.

Proverbs 11

Map 1: Bible Nations | Map 2: Empire of David and Solomon Map 3: Kingdoms of Judah and Israel | Post Exile Chronology.

1 A false balance is abomination to the LORD:
but a just weight is his delight.

2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame:
but with the lowly is wisdom.

3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them:
but the perverseness of transgressors destroy them.

4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath:
but righteousness delivereth from death.

5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way:
but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.

6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them:
but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.

7 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish:
and the hope of unjust men perisheth.

8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble,
and the wicked cometh in his stead.

9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour:
but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth:
and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted:
but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

12 He that is void ofwisdom despiseth his neighbour:
but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.

13 A talebearer [One walking in slander] revealeth secrets:
but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.

14 Where no counsel is, the people fall:
but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it:
and he that hateth suretiship is sure.

16 A gracious woman retaineth honour:
and strong men retain riches.

17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul:
but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.

18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work:
but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.

19 As righteousness tendeth to life:
so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.

20 They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD:
but such as are upright in their way are his delight.

21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished:
but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.

22 As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout,
so is a fair woman which is without discretion.

23 The desire of the righteous is only good:
but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth;
and there is thatwithholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.

25 The liberal soul shall be made fat:
and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.

26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him:
but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.

27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour:
but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.

28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall:
but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.

29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind:
and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.

30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
and he that winneth souls is wise.

31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth:
much more the wicked and the sinner.
