[ 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: Proverbs 29 contains comparisons and contrasts between the righteous and the wicked.
          The subjects of chapter 29 are these:
               He who is reproved often but hardens his neck will suddenly be destroyed (shattered), and that without remedy (1).
               When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked bear rule, the people mourn (2).
               The one who loves wisdom causes his father to rejoice; but he who keeps company with harlots squanders his wealth (3).
               The king by judgment establishes the land; but he that receives gifts overthrow it (4).
               A man that flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his feet (5).
               In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare' but the righteous sing and rejoice (6).
               The righteous consider the cause of the poor; but the wicked do not understand such knowledge (7).
               Scornful men bring a city into a snare; but wise men turn away wrath (8).
               If a wise man judges a foolish man, the fool rages or laughs, without rest (9).
               The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just watch over the soul of the upright (10).
               A fool utters all his mind, but a wise man keeps it in till afterward (11).
               If a ruler hearkens to lies, all of his servants are wicked (12).
               The poor man and the deceitful man meet together; the LORD gives light to both of their eyes (13).
               If a king faithfully judges the poor, his throne shall be established for ever (14).
               The rod and reproof give wisdom; but a child left to himself brings his mother to shame (15).
               When the wicked multiply, transgression increases; but the righteous shall see them fall (16).
               Correct your son, and he shall give you rest; indeed, he shall give delight to your soul (17).
               Where there is no revelation the people perish; but the one who keeps the law is blessed (18).
               A servant will not be corrected by words; for though he understands he will not answer (19).
               Do you see a man who is hasty in his words; there is more hope of a fool than of him (20).
               He who brings up his servant from a child shall have him become his son at last (21).
               An angry man stirs up strife, and a furious man abounds in transgression (22).
               A man's pride will bring him low; but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit (23).
               Anyone who is partner with a thief hates his own soul; he hears cursing and does not disclose it (24).
               The fear of man brings a snare; but the one who puts his trust in the LORD shall be safe (25).
               Many seek the ruler's favor; but justice comes from the LORD for every man (26).
               An unjust man is an abomination to the just; and he who is upright in his path is an abomination to the wicked (27).

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.

Proverbs Detailed Outline

The Proverbs are grouped into two Collections, each having 2 Sections, with various Sub-Sections. (See the Detailed Outline above and below).

1. Collection 1 - Proverbs of Solomon & the Wise (Solomon's Collection)
     (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)
                         (a). Folly: Adulterous Women Bring Suffering and Death (5:1-15)
                         (b). Wisdom: Safety from Marital Love + Diligence in Wisdom (5:16 - 6:19)
                    (3). Part 3: (6:20 - 9:18)
                         (a). Folly: Adulterous Women Bring Deceit & Death (6:20 - 7:27)
                         (b). Wisdom: It Brings Favor from the LORD, Kings, & Rulers (8:1 - 9:18)
          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.
     B. Section 2 - Sayings of the Wise: ["Pay attention and listen to the sayings of the wise"] - (22:17 - 24:34)
              Note: If Ecclesiastes 12:9 refers to Solomon, this collection may be one of those which he "searched out and arranged." (See also 1 Kings 4:32).
                       The same is true for the last group of proverbs (30:1 - 33:31).
          1). Sub-Section 1 - "The Sayings of the Wise" (22:17 - 24:22)
          2). Sub-Section 2 - "These Also are the Sayings of the Wise" (24:23 - 24:34)
2. Collection 2 - Proverbs of Solomon & the Wise (Hezekiah's Collection)
     (25:1 - 31:31) - 968 - 946 B.C., Israel
     A. Section 1 - Proverbs of Solomon (25:1 - 29:27)
          "These are also proverbs which the men of Hezekiah King of Judah copied out."
               Note: This shows that the Book of Proverbs reached its final form in Hezekiah's time (715-686 B.C.) - about 230 years or more after the death of Solomon (971-931 B.C.).
                         The copyists may have been Isaiah, Micah, Hosea, Eliakim, Joah, Shebna or other inspired men.
                         The proverbs may have been collected from the 3,000 Proverbs mentioned in 1 Kings 4:32 and / or official records.
                         The new collection may have been compiled about 713 B.C., around the time when Hezekiah invited Israelites from the other tribes
                            to partake of the Passover and to be instructed in the law (2 Chronicles 30).

Proverbs 29

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

1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck,
shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without [and nothing of] remedy.

2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:
but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father:
but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

4 The king by judgment establisheth the land:
but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.

5 A man that flattereth his neighbour
spreadeth a net for his feet.

6 In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare:
but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.

7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor:
but the wicked regardeth not to know it.

8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare:
but wise men turn away wrath.

9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man,
whether he rage or laugh,
there is no [nothing of] rest.

10 The bloodthirsty [men of blood] hate the upright:
but the just seek his soul.

11 A fool uttereth all his mind:
but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

12 If a ruler hearken to lies,
all his servants are wicked.

13 The poor and the deceitful man meet together:
the LORD lighteneth both their eyes.

14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor,
his throne shall be established for ever.

15 The rod and reproof give wisdom:
but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

16 When the wicked are multiplied,
transgression increaseth:
but the righteous
shall see their fall.

17 Correct thy son,
and he shall give thee rest;
yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

18 Where there is no vision,
the people perish:
but he that keepeth the law,
happy is he.

19 A servant will not be corrected by words:
for though he understand he will not answer.

20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words?
there is more hope of a fool than of him.

21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child
shall have him become his son at the length.

22 An angry man stirreth up strife,
and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.

23 A man's pride shall bring him low:
but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul:
he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth [shows] it not.

25 The fear of man bringeth a snare:
but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.

26 Many seek the ruler's favour;
but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD.

27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just:
and he that is upright in theway is abomination to the wicked.
